|Three music venues, one exciting corner.|
The potential for synergy between these three businesses was evident even before the ribbon was cut at The Low Beat April 4, but if there were any left wondering whether three music venues could play nice and work together, that celebration would have assuaged all concerns. Glassman, John Mancini, owner of Pauly's Hotel, and Graeme McKenna, general manager for The Linda posed together for shots in front of the new bar, and talks were already under way about a multi-venue summer music event.
That weekend Pauly's and The Low Beat co-hosted WCDB's anniversary party, with one cover for both establishments.
"When Howard moved in, I gave him a present. I had two stamps made up, one for his place and one for mine so customers could go back and forth between our places," explained Mancini.
Now, in the latest follow-up, the two are partnering again, in conjunction with WEXT 97.7 and KeepAlbanyBoring to present "Down on the Corner."
"We had such a blast this past weekend partnering up with our next door neighbor Pauly's Hotel to help present WCDB's 36th Anniversary party that we thought, "hey, why not try this again?" So we are," says Glassman. The music starts Saturday, April 26 at 7pm.
