PHOENIX – The Foundry On First – a new music venue offering a supreme live music experience located in the heart of downtown Phoenix on 402 South 1st St. (and Jackson) – will open its doors for the first time with a bang during a grand opening celebration with New Orleans-based rockers Cowboy Mouth on Saturday, July 9 & Sunday, July 10. Doors open at 7 p.m., with live music starting at 8 p.m nightly. Tickets are $17.00 (plus ticket convenience fees) and may be purchased in advance at www.dannyzeliskopresents.com or at the door.
The grand opening performances at The Foundry On First will entertain locals as well as those who are in town for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game festivities taking place July 11 (Home Run Derby) and July 12 (All-Star Game) at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.
Local promoter Danny Zelisko is booking the venue, which is located near Alice Cooper’stown just south of the US Airways Center. Booking will be done by Zelisko’s new venture, Danny Zelisko Presents. The Foundry will hold 1,500 people at maximum capacity, making the venue a welcome mid-sized addition to the valley’s music scene.
“I’m very excited to be in the position to bring in great national and local talent to what is going to become the best local music venue in town,” Zelisko said.
The historic warehouse building serves as a cool backdrop for the ultimate music-friendly atmosphere. Coupled with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, fantastic sight-lines across the room, and many easily accessible refreshment service stops, The Foundry on First will be a music lovers haven.
The Foundry on First has already booked all different types of national acts and local acts from across the musical spectrum well into October, including the following live performances: a show featuring Arizona’s best bands The Love Me Nots, Jed’s A Millionaire, & The Persauders on July 15; Cody Canada (from Cross Canadian Ragweed) & The Departed on July 22; Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers on July 30; The Tubes on August 13 and many more (see full schedule below).
Hear more about these and other great musicians on the Danny Zelisko Presents Radio Program, heard every Sunday night at 10 p.m. on 93.3 KDKB-FM.
