The Joe Buck Showroom
, a 175-person capacity venue, recently opened at the downtown branch of J.Bucks Restaurant
. Since February, the room has hosted shows from Erin Bode, Chris Botti and the Fabulous Motown Revue, although last weekend's Judah Friedlander comedy show marked the start of a busier time; Bobcat Goldthwait (June 5-6) and Gilbert Gottfried (June 27) are also on the docket. Things will heat up even more starting in late August/early September, with shows on Friday and Saturday nights involving national comedy and music acts (mainly rock/pop, blues and R&B).
