The Owl Farm- Little Hamilton’s Successor-Scheduled To Open This July 31Posted by Gary Ashton: RE/MAX on Saturday, July 14th, 2012 at 11:28am.
Little Hamilton, the DIY warehouse venue which saw a variety of talented punk and rock bands entertain Nashville residents for over four years, is all set for a comeback after closing down just two months ago.
Having been forced to shut down due to what were described as ‘toxic conditions, and flooding issues’, the owners of Little Hamilton have announced plans to open up another music venue encompassing the same spirit in a different part of the town.
To be known as the “The Owl Farm”, the new establishment hopes to reclaim its crown as Nashville’s leading music and performance art space for punk and hardcore bands, playing songs suitable for all-ages. In addition, presentations for plays, poetry readings, plus other gigs will be held as well.
Ensuring that the entertainment provided is suitable for people of all-ages is vitally important for a business like The Owl Farm to survive and. “Raising the bar” to strictly cater for older audiences (adults) would mean a potentially substantial loss in revenue.
“We felt that the presence of a DIY all-ages venue is absolutely vital to the survival of underground music scenes and radical events in Nashville, so I'm glad other people feel the same way,” explained Jazzi Bennett, co-owner of The Owl Farm.
She added “Not many parents are OK with their children going to house shows, so it's harder to get high school-age kids to come out. And unfortunately that's been our only option for places to put shows since little Hamilton closed down.”
Having control over the events children attend and the type of music they listen to has always been a primary concern of parents. For many younger people living in Nashville, The Owl Farm may be the only “good” option for them to party after sunset.
