GR’s Latest Music Venue Has First Shows Lined Up
The Listening Room by Studio Park is set to open in November. The 200-seat facility will be featuring local, national and even internationally known acts.
The new Studio Park complex downtown keeps chugging its way toward completion, and one of the new facilities will be a concert venue called The Listening Room.
