NEWS: Nite Owl to Change Ownership


...the Dayton Daily News reported today that the Nite Owl is being bought and will likely undergo dramatic changes when it re-opens as Blind Bill's in June. You can get the full story over here, but rest assured, many changes are afoot and will have sever effects on the local music scene. Despite its myriad problems, the Nite Owl has been one of the few clubs to allow 18 & up shows and has played host to numerous touring acts over the last few years. The new ownership intends to end the 18 & up shows and to gear the venue towards an "Americana" theme. On the upside, they plan to move the stage. I guess you take the good with the bad...

I wish someone would open a bar next to the new Nite Owl that has a Fantasy Farm theme.

Blind Bob's intends to book various shows including blues, rock, folk, punk, anything we like that we think will sell out a room. Yes, our target audiance is a little older, yes we intend to stop serving alcohol to underage kids, but we also intend to still rock, have a better stage, better service, and a cleaner space.
