Home of the Black Comedy Explosion, Slade's Bar & Grill hearing

Jonathon Gates just sent out a message on his Facebook page about Slade's Bar & Grill, the current home of his Wednesday night Black Comedy Explosion show. According to Gates, the City of Boston will have a haering about extending the venue's entertainment license Thursdays through Sundays and increasing their capacity.

Gates has been doing the BCE for more than a decade in Boston, making it a fixture on the scene from the days when it was at the old Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall to the present. I don't believe this affects his Wednesday night show directly, but it may help the venue.

If you're interested in going, here are the details, from Mr. Gates:

Boston City Hall (Government Center)
Wednesday, August 12th at 11:30AM
Room 801.
