Showbox is taking over the cavernouse space formerly known as The Fenix formerly known as the Premier! A press realease sent out today from Showbox talent buyer Chad Quierolo states that the new space will be dubbed Showbox SODO, with the original locale staying open as Showbox at the Market. How cute.

Dates on the calendar so far (all are all-ages!): Underoath (Oct. 10), The Pogues (Oct. 17), Dashboard Confessional (Oct. 21), Brand New with Thice and Mewithoutyou (Oct. 30) and The Hives (Nov. 1). Full release after the jump.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
THE SHOWBOX ACQUIRES SECOND LOCATION
The Showbox is excited to announce the addition of a 22,000-square-foot concert and event facility to its ranks, located at 1700 1st Avenue South. The 1511-capacity venue, previously named The Premier and The Fenix, will be called Showbox SoDo and is slated to open in September for 21+ and all-ages events, as well as corporate events and private parties.
The Showbox will continue to operate in its downtown location, to be re-named Showbox at the Market, and the venues will run concurrently. A major renovation is planned at Showbox SoDo for early 2008 that will enhance the overall concert/event experience through improved sightlines and interior design.
Booking and promotions for both venues will continue to be managed by Chad Queirolo and Brian McFadin. Holds for Fall 2007 and beyond are currently being accepted.
