New music club on tap for Marathon Village

A new event space that aims to fill a void left by the now-defunct 328 Performance Hall and City Hall is set to open in Marathon Village this fall. The currently unnamed venue is owned by partners with experience in the entertainment industry, including Josh Billue of Exit/In, the music club here; Chris Cobb; and Telisha Arguelles Cobb.

The new venue is to open in October. A radio contest being held this week is designed to pick a name.

Nashville radio station Lightning 100 is staging a “name that venue” contest through Friday. Anyone who enters a name via an online form will receive a complimentary ticket to the place’s grand-opening show.
