It’s been exactly 50 days since we opened the doors for our first show on January 16th.

Since our grand opening, which featured local favorites Panther Car and Saint Paul, Minnesota’s indie-pop heroes Hippo Campus, we’ve had the pleasure of hosting a variety of bands, artists, and musicians.

The response from the Bozeman community and the outpouring of love and support for what we’re doing has been astounding, to say the least.

Hippo Campus and Panther Car rocked the stage on opening night.

The amount of talent that we’ve seen on our stage in the last fifty days has been unreal.

On night two of being open we had the extraordinary Victor Wooten Trio featuring Dennis Chambers grace the Rialto stage.

Our first in-house event, the Stranger Things Upside Down Party was a huge success and proved that there’s a plethora of local talent right here in Bozeman.

Best Korea kicked off the night with some bumping synth wave and had the entire place on their toes.

Of course, you can’t have a Stranger Things party without some outrageously awesome costumes and killer 80’s vibes, right?

It was pretty strange to see so many Elevens and Dustins getting their groove on throughout the night.

And after that, Jackson Lamar hopped on the decks to keep everyone in the building dancing into the night.

Time to get Strange.

Almost every night now, we’ve got great acts up on the stage.

And not just acts, either. Everything from Hayao Miyazaki movies to roundtable discussions on the finer points of concise poetry technique are happening in the not-too-distant future.

We want to have something for everybody going on in Downtown Bozeman.

To have a lineup that reflects the awesome diversity of our community.

That’s the mission.

The past 50 days have been an absolute blast. Here’s to the next 50 days, and to many more days beyond that.
