First there was the Skylight Exchange (OK, well, first there was Cat's Cradle, from the 70s until the early 80s, and then briefly Rhythm Alley, and *then* Skylight Exchange). A large # of years ago, some local freaks approached Skylight owner Dennis Gavin about renting out the space at night for a rockclub. He agreed, and over the course of the next few years, Nightlight's stars rose & aligned while Skylight's sun began to set. Now there is only Nightlight, which has just made the transition to private (liquor-serving) club.
Unlike many other similar entities, however, they are non-smoking *AND* all-ages.

R. Ring, Bad Balloon, Split Single
R. Ring is what Kelley Deal is doing nowadays. Split Single is what bassist Jason Narducy does when he's not playing with Bob Mould or Superchunk. Bad Balloon is the secret treasure on this bill: they're Lee Waters's (Work Clothes, Cobra Khan, Panzer, Lud, Dean & Britta, etc) new band.
