Now you can all stop asking us on Twitter: Walter's On Washington has found a new home, at 1120 Naylor, right behind DiverseWorks, according to a flyer and press release sent to us this morning. A Roky Moon & BOLT! holiday show set for December 25 featuring the Manichean and The Mathletes looks to be one of the first, if not the very first, show at the new venue.
The Walter's location on Washington has been shuttered for quite a few months now, with their scheduled shows getting shuffled to other venues like Fitzgerald's over the summer, closing in June.
What do you think about the new location? Myself and Chris Gray spent a few minutes in that area back in 2009 searching for clues, since the spots surrounding DW were the rumored landing of the new Walter's even two years ago. We did see a few probable candidates, but it seems to have taken longer than expected for everyone involved.
