We previously reported on 300b, the proposed 2,000-capacity venue in lower SE and now there might be another venue making its way across the river.
According to the action news team at KGW, Beam Development is interested in building a 2,000-capacity venue "anchored by Monqui Productions" in the space directly across from the Burnside Bridge in NE Portland.
Interesting. I don't believe that Portland in this, or any, economy could support two venues of that size, but such expansion could be a good thing for this city's role on the national music scene. We put a line out to the folks at Monqui and will post an update when we hear back.
