Metro & Half Acre Present: On the Floor

OnTheFloor metro 2018.png

Metro and Half Acre Beer Co. have teamed up to break the divide between player and performer with the venue’s new On The Floor series. During these intimate shows, bands will forgo Metro’s storied main stage in favor of risers on the club’s floor, bringing performer and patron closer than ever before. Not only will On The Floor break barriers between bands and fans, but the staging concept will also halve the venue’s capacity, keeping ticket prices low and affording a wider breadth of opportunities to burgeoning talent. Part performance concept and part creative incubator, On The Floor pays homage to Metro’s roots as a champion of artists of all echelons.

Featured performers:

TURNSPIT / BLIND ADAM AND THE FEDERAL LEAGUE / GET BY

$10 Adv. - $12 Day Of / 18 & Over / Doors: 7:30PM / Show: 8:30PM
