New venue alert! The Old Mill Upstairs makes Wyse Road more fun

Just over the bridge, punk rock awaits

The Fat Stupids can relax and record at the same time.

Candace Redden (owner of CD Heaven) and Earl Joudrey from (Fight To Live Productions) have answered many prayers for a place to play in Dartmouth with their new venue upstairs from The Old Mill on Wyse Road, conveniently named The Old Mill Upstairs. Redden has been putting on shows at CD Heaven for two years, and witnessed Dartmouth’s demand for a bigger punk and rock venue firsthand. “We are planning on blowing this place wide open,” says Redden. “All we really need to do is let the Hali fans know that this venue is ridiculously close to the bridge and buses, so it's easy to get to.” So now you know. The opening show is Saturday, August 1st with both an all ages and a bar show that night. At 6pm: Dockside Hookers, The Nailheads, High Crimes, Total Bastards. At 10pm: Dockside Hookers, The Nailheads, The Fat Stupids and Shitkicker. Both shows are $5, less with a handbill (just like the old days). Pick up a handbill at CD Heaven and if you are a band looking to play The Old Mill Upstairs, you can talk to Candace at her store.
