Big Thief, Bleachers, JoJo, Lake Street Dive, Lane 8, Mitski, The Story So Far, Wallows, Watchhouse, and Waxahatchee are among the first bands confirmed to headline at the venue, located in Boston’s vibrant Allston-Brighton neighborhood.

“We are proud of the broad spectrum of artists in our first announcement of confirmed shows, with more shows to follow in the weeks ahead,” said Josh Bhatti, Vice President and head of the Boston office of The Bowery Presents, regional partner of AEG Presents. “The Bowery Presents has always been passionate in creating and operating venues where both fans and artists alike can have a great experience; we’re confident that music enthusiasts in Boston will be excited about the artists playing Roadrunner beginning this spring.”
Added Bhatti: “Beginning with fantastic staff and continuing with unobstructed sightlines to state-of-the-art sound, plus easy access to bars and restrooms, Roadrunner is set to join The Sinclair as a beloved concert venue in Greater Boston, delivering on our commitment to keep the music first.”
The 50,000 square foot venue is currently under construction at Boston Landing, built adjacent to The TRACK at new balance. Once open, Roadrunner will expand The Bowery Presents’ venue ownership and booking footprint within the Boston area, joining The Sinclair in Cambridge (owned and operated by The Bowery Presents with 525 capacity) and Royale (exclusively booked by The Bowery Presents with 1,200 capacity), in addition to concert bookings in theaters and arenas in the region, totaling hundreds annually. The company has had the honor of playing a role in many artists’ career trajectories, from performances at intimate venues to sold-out arenas. The new venue further solidifies that commitment to artist development.
Inspired by the iconic song by The Modern Lovers, the name of the venue evokes a musical love letter to Massachusetts, while also nodding to the track located adjacent to the room and the high-energy world of live music.
