News and Notes: Ticketfly to Be Sold; National Sawdust Opens

ticketfly_logo_positiveTicketfly, an independent web based ticket seller has agreed to be acquired by music streamer Pandora for $450 million in a cash and stock deal.  Ticketfly has been a prominent alternative to Ticketmaster and is currently used by Brooklyn Bowl, The Bell House and The Rockwood Music Hall, among other venues.

National Sawdust

Here’s a counterweight to the announcement of the closing of Cameo Gallery earlier this week.  National Sawdust, a music venue located on North 6th Street in Williamsburg, opened last week.

As the name of the venue implies, the location was once a factory which manufactured sawdust.  National Sawdust is a non-profit venue and looks to book a various types of music.  It can hold up to 350 people at a performance. The venue’s current calendar does not list any of the types of music that Now I’ve Heard Everything covers.  Still, it’s excellent news when any new music venue opens, particularly in Williamsburg.

    National Sawdust sounds like a company that Gomez Addams is a major shareholder.
