By the way, Bowery Presents has a long track record and books more top-shelf "alternative" bands than probably anyone in the country.
My understanding was that Hornik and R5 were(and still are) involved in the project and now it has just become public knowledge that Bowery had been involved from the beginning as well. There seems to be a bit of confusion on this in the various media outlets as well. I was told that it's Hornik's name and address on the liquor application posted on the door, but I guess that's easy enough to confirm.
Anywho....here's a quick clip from Monday night's show at Webster Hall in NYC. Owned and operated by Bowery Presents Webster is almost twice as big as the Jumbo would have been, but you get my point. I wouldn't have been upset to see shows like this under the El.
