Revitalization comes to Bozeman’s midtown neighborhood, with new trendy eateries and shops popping up. But probably the biggest boost for this part of town comes with the addition of the ELM, a new concert venue owned by Logjam Productions, best known for operating the KettleHouse Amphitheater in Missoula and the Rialto in downtown Bozeman. But the ELM is another beast entirely, bringing vivid vocals and clear harmonics to the town in a modern venue that fits in with the mountain architecture and historic buildings of the neighborhood. Get your tickets and enjoy the show at the ELM. Here’s everything you need to know about this new venue in Bozeman.
Midtown Bozeman is an up-and-coming neighborhood within an easy distance of downtown. This urban renewal district cradles the 7th Ave corridor, where community institutions like Haufbrau House offer classic character alongside up-and-coming eateries like Bourbon that bring fresh flavor. With close access to tree-lined residential areas and shopping, this district connects several different sections of town.
Ultramodern architecture offers a new kind of musical experience for Bozeman music lovers. But it’s not just about aesthetics here, with design focusing on function to move people through, provide flow to the stage and concessions, and offer an acoustic experience to remember. High-tech design offers a fresh atmosphere and incorporates sound science to amp up audio quality.
The ELM is already here and open for business, freshly minted for a season of musicians and good vibes. But don’t stress if you feel like you missed the grand opening. Each performance here is something special, giving an opening night feel to every artist’s reverb. Get ready to dance, mosh, and sway at this indoor (and all-weather) venue under the Big Sky.
This fall and winter, a range of musicians hold court onstage to christen the new venue. Bookers have brought in a range of artists, from acoustic to country, funk and pop, to appeal to just about any musical taste under the sun.
Todd Snider hits the stage on October 1, with deep grooving in his new album, which let him reinvent his sound after 18 records in the fresh First Agnostic Church of Hope and Wonder.
And the groove keeps moving as Funksgiving slinks up on November 20, with a 70s dance party led by The Sweet Groovalicious Funk Machine. In this 8th annual dance celebration, proceeds benefit non-profit partner Bridger Care. Don’t forget the bell-bottoms!
Don’t miss Reggie Watts on December 18th, when the current bandleader of CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Cordon, improvises a blend of music and comedy that hits the high notes. Then party on with the local Kitchen Dwellers rolling in for a bluegrass New Year's Eve shindig that is sure to be toe-tapping good to ring in the new year.
And you’ll find artists every week in between, from local favorites to national headliners. Tickets at the ELM top off a Bozeman stay to remember. Book your luxury lifestyle accommodation at a VRBozeman property, and check off a few star-studded shows at the same time.
