Will "The Truman" Spark Concert Renaissance In Kansas City East Crossroads?!?!
The East Crossroads will soon host a new venue that has high hopes of cashing in on a trend that exists mostly in the minds of Kansas City real estate developers and politicos.
Rather than focus on boring biz dudes Chris Cobb & partner, Josh Billue along with the snoozy deets of their million dollar entertainment gambit that hopes to compete against small to medium sized venues. . . Here's their pitch:
Originally built in the 1930s, The Truman celebrates the look and feel of the concrete and steel building reborn as a music venue and event space. The Truman features a large main hall, separate bar & lounge at the main entrance, open air patio, and second story VIP that overlooks the stage and has downtown Kansas City views.
Conveniently located just 2 minutes from Downtown, The Truman is located in The East Crossroads. The Crossroads Arts District is a vibrant and diverse community that welcomes all walks of life and all forms of artistic expression. Home to more than 400 local artists and 100 independent studios, the Crossroads Arts District is one of the most concentrated gallery districts in the nation. Beyond the galleries, restaurants and storefronts, you’ll find an equally impressive collection of professional design studios, architectural firms, advertising agencies, and other innovative businesses.
Stretch has had some luck with his outdoor mud puddle that manages to offer some notable acts. BUT the market might be getting over-saturated.
Is the East Crossroads is ready to be KC's new entertainment hot spot???
