The ELM, Bozeman’s newest music venue, releases initial lineup
BOZEMAN – Montana-based entertainment company Logjam Presents has announced the Grand Opening and initial lineup for Bozeman, Montana’s newest concert venue, The ELM.
Located on the corner of South 7th Avenue and Short Street in Bozeman’s emerging Midtown District, the brand new 1,100-cap venue will open its doors on Sept. 3, 2021 to welcome eight-time Grammy nominee Death Cab for Cutie. The Grand Opening will be followed by performances from electronic future-bass duo Louis The Child (Sep. 7), Perfume Genius (Sep. 11) and Future Islands (Sep. 14).
Other concerts announced include popular soul/R&B ensemble Lake Street Dive (Sep. 21), Bozeman natives Pinky & the Floyd (Sep. 25), a seated performance with singer-songwriter Todd Snider (Oct. 1), Lucy Dacus (Oct. 4), and an evening of American Southern soul-rock with JJ Grey & Mofro (Nov. 14) among several others.
“The ELM is exactly what Bozeman needs,” says Ryan Torres, VP of Marketing for Logjam Presents. “Nationally touring artists have long needed a dedicated venue in Bozeman. With the new ELM, Bozemanites now have an opportunity to experience world-class entertainment in a state-of-the-art venue right in their own backyard. This will bring an entirely new caliber of entertainment to the area.”
Death Cab for Cutie says, “Bozeman, we can’t wait to play a show to break in The Elm for the beautiful venue’s grand opening this September! Get your tickets and we’ll see you there!”
“Pinky and the Floyd is super excited to be a part of the inaugural lineup for Bozeman’s newest venue, The ELM,” Bozeman-based Pinky and the Floyd said in a statement. “Having built the band around Bozeman’s high energy and passion for live music, Pinky is certain that the same passion and love for live entertainment is what built The ELM. From its contemporary architecture to its modern sound and production to its efficient customer circulation, this venue will be a welcome addition to Bozeman’s growing Midtown district and the ideal environment for taking in some live Pink Floyd music! We invite you to celebrate the triumphant return to live music with Pinky and the Floyd, Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 at The ELM in Bozeman!”
