Got a chance last night to check out the BIG Mississippi Studios pre-reopening party and see the space ahead of tonight's FREE extravaganza.

The new room can hold between 150-200 people and a staircase-wraparound balcony showcases some pieces from the old studio - that once was a storefront church.

You walk into the bar/lounge area with a couple picnic like tables, then you notice a HUGE nude painting of Storm Large.


The high red ceilings are set off by an almost matted stained woodgrain, the place is no way overdone and has done a lot to preserve artifacts and fixtures from the original place -- including the theater seating in the balcony.

The stage is just the right height, and I am sure they will be tweaking the sound as more artists change the dimensions of the place with their varying sounds.

The grand re-opening party is Wednesday, March 4, with Weinland Rebecca Gates, Pete Krebs, Lewi Longmire and more.
Also - a new restaurant/menu and bar.
