Go to their site they have a place where you can recommend your favs. BUT, they are only booking national tours. I recommended James Cotton - it isn't confirmed, but they got back and said maybe there's a date in September.

I would like to turn the former Diming building into a bar / music venue that features underground punk and alternative acts. Kind of like the Black Cat in DC.

Not enough parking. Besides, it would attract all the "residents" of the nearby flop houses.

For a place that claims To be a beer bar they have an awful tap and bottle list. maybe they should worry about that instead of concerts that no one will go to!!

You never heard of him? Don't know what to tell you. Then people will come? That show will easily sellout. Feel sorry for you.

McCooles is a old style Black Box theater designed for listen to spoken word. Good for acoustic acts, blues, jazz, indie. The layout is not good for wildly popular pop/punk, punk, metal, hardcore and the like. There is no "pit", no place for people to stand, mosh, crowd the stage or pile on. This location has never worked for modern-style music that draws an active audience. These types of acts, which do draw large crowds, demands chest-thumping subs and face-melting cabinets. This is very difficult to do well in a rectangular Black Box theater.
Perhaps the idea is to compete with The Sellersville Theater?

Quakertown and vicinity has hosted some very popular modern bands but it has always been underground and below the radar as far as most citizens know.

I've been to many events there and had a great time. I've had many dinners and lunches also. But the thing I most like about McCooles is their effort at making this area a great place to come and spend time and money. If you step back and look at Q-Town you could see some real potential.

Great job McCooles! Do you think you could get Led Zeppelin to play some day or maybe Bob Dylan?

You're right it kind of reminds me of an unplugged show, the musicians are right there conversing with the audience in between sets.
