Kelley told Rocks Off that the complex will now be four new parts. The main room will stay the same - it's the club's big draw and allows them to book larger shows, including upcoming Mike Snow and Booker T dates.
The Red Room is to be remodeled into something akin to the House Of Blues' loungy Foundation Room, meaning no more shows inside it. The sports-bar area will become the Channel Room and will act as the venue's smaller setting for local metal and alt-rock showcases. Kelley will book most of the acts on that stage, and hinted that one of the lower floors will be turned into a separate dance club. READ THE REST
Wired Live's first show is Saturday, February 6. I saw one of the wildest shows in The Meridian's early years. It was a Burden Brothers show (Toadies lead singer/songwriter Vaden Todd Lewis and Reverend Horton Heat drummer Taz Bentley). Lets just say there was a girl hanging upside down from a pipe behind the drum kit. She was not an intended part of the show.
