Boston is getting a brand-new music venue from The Bowery Presents. Roadrunner will be a 3,500-capacity general admission indoor music venue located at 89 Guest Street.  

The 50,000 square foot venue is currently under construction at Boston Landing, built adjacent to art complex “The TRACK at new balance.” Roadrunner will open in Spring 2022 in Boston’s Allston-Brighton neighborhood. 

“The Bowery Presents has always focused on creating and operating venues where both fans and artists alike can have a great experience,” said Josh Bhatti, vp and head of the Boston office of The Bowery Presents and regional partner of AEG Presents. “From unobstructed sightlines to state-of-the-art sound, plus easy access to bars and restrooms, we’re confident that Roadrunner will join The Sinclair as a beloved concert venue in Greater Boston, delivering on our commitment to keep the music first.” 

The Bowery Presents states that the venue’s name is inspired by the iconic Modern Lovers track of the same name and is a musical love letter to Massachusetts. Roadrunner’s opening lineup will be announced at a later date 

"To us, the song 'Roadrunner' so authentically belongs to Massachusetts and this new venue. There’s a reason why it came close to becoming the official state song: it’s transportive while still unifying people," said Bhatti. "We could not be more excited to welcome in fans next year."

Once open, Roadrunner will expand The Bowery Presents’ venue ownership and booking footprint within the Boston area, joining the 1,200-capacity Royale and The 525-capacity Sinclair in Cambridge. The Bowery Presents, a partner of AEG Presents, also books and promotes hundreds of concerts in the region yearly.
