After closing its doors late last year, prominent Perth live music venue Capitol will reopen this month with a massive revamp.
Set to open for the first time on Saturday 21 March, Magnet House – or Maggie’s – is being touted as "Perth’s 21st-century answer to Studio 54".
The Murray Street venue has undergone a multi-million dollar overhaul, which includes an Australian first multi-dimensional kinetic lighting rig boasting 1.5 addressable LED pixels, a fresh design and private booths in both the upstairs and downstairs areas.
Three bars will spread across the two levels, as well as two separate rooms which will host a vast array of DJ talent, while Maggie's also promises to showcase "some of the best local, national and international live music on offer".
Speaking to The Music last November, venue booker Jeff Halley said, “It feels a little odd, but at the same time, we just keep moving on.
“We’ve already got shows booked in for the new Capitol.
“To see a gig there, to play a gig there, it’s still one of the best venues, but we take our live music and our audiences seriously and we want to keep it at the forefront, so we’re giving it a good makeover."
Over the years, Capitol has hosted bands such as The Strokes, The Bronx, Jimmy Eat World, The Vines, Violent Soho and stacks more.
