A new concert venue (with a lot of shows already lined up) is opening this week in the Capital Region!

With a lot of publicity already, Skyloft is finally going to be opening this Thursday at Crossgates Mall. I initially saw the opening date at the Times Union, in a post about the new 600-800 person venue. From there, I went to the actual official Crossgates site to verify and yes, Skyloft is opening this Thursday, and a ton of shows are already booked.  Crossgates has added a lot of interactive spaces and I have to admit I'm pretty excited about this.

Skyloft was created by the owners of Daryl's House, so there are already connections in place with a promoter and such.  That explains why there's already a great slew of shows lined up. The club itself also looks pretty cool, with dining and an LED wall, so I'll be excited to check it out. Some of the shows scheduled already include punk music, like X, and even more classic rock.  You can check out the bands and venue info at the official site.
