The Paragon Theatre, the self-proclaimed “phoenix of Gottingen Street,” is due to open for realsies this Friday April 3 with a big ol’ party featuring Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees, Rich Aucoin, Ghettosocks, The Darcys, live painting by co-owner Peter Farmer (just so you know, Farmer will be painting a 12x12 foot canvas throughout the course of the evening depicting a phoenix rising out of the ashes) and an exhibition by Yo Rodeo. They will also have appetizers and giveaways. This may be the perfect time for you to scope it out and start booking amazing things there. Also, if you get a chance, I really really want to know what they did with all those mannequin legs.
