Mushroomhead Slated to Launch Odeon's Reopening

Music News


Late last year, Gregg Kelley, a former Scene sales rep with a background in concert promotion, started booking shows at Roc Bar, a 250-capacity club that once hosted local and national rock acts. Angela White took over as manager.

Back then, Kelley told us that if things went well, he’d start booking the old Odeon, a thriving rock venue throughout the ’90s. Mike Tricarichi, president of Telecom Acquisition Corp., owns both the Odeon and Rock Bar.

Now, Kelley has announced that he’s begun booking the Odeon (the club had been rechristened Earth in the 2000s). The local metal act Mushroomhead is set to play the first show at the venue at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 1. Tickets are on sale through Ticketweb.
