Bush, Henry Rollins, Matisyahu, Corey Smith, Bassnectar, MuteMath, Robert Earl Keen, Rebelution, Wolfgang Gartner, Kendrick Lamar, Alan Jackson. That’s just a sampling of the talent making its way through town this fall. As the talent buyer of the Varsity Theatre, I might have a little bit of insight as to why this is happening.
This is just the beginning. Now that the venue has established some cred with national acts that people actually want to see, it will just be popping up on more radars in the near future.
The magic doesn't happen over night, fellas. It takes lots of time, effort and a shite ton of networking (which is something Bowen is a certified badass at). So just be patient, if there is a demand for a certain act to come to Baton Rouge, Bowen will do all that he can to see that it happens.
