Grizzly Bear Will Be Canton Hall’s First Headliner Saturday

Late for Halloween but in time for Oaktopia, the newest old Deep Ellum venue celebrates its grand opening.

After its Halloween launch was postponed, The Bomb Factory’s newly revived neighbor Canton Hall will open its doors to the public on Saturday. And it’s fortunate timing for owners Clint and Whitney Barlow as they document the hall’s beginning: they’ll host Grizzly Bear’s devoted fan base as the band stops on its tour behind Painted Ruins.

Austin’s Molly Burch opens.

“Unforeseen construction delays” were the reasons cited for moving the grand opening to this weekend. All is moving forward in time for the venue to host Oaktopia next weekend as planned, as the festival moved from Denton where bands headlined outdoors on the Square to Dallas and the 12,500 square-foot space. Deep Ellum Live was the last incarnation of show space at 2727 Canton St. It closed in 2004.

You can find tickets to Saturday’s show at Canton Hall’s website.
