Houston's Meridian is now Wired Live

The Houston Press is reporting big changes over at the music venue currently called The Meridian. The Warehouse District music hall is splitting itself into four clubs:

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. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
