MadLife Stage & Studios, a new eatery and music venue in downtown Woodstock, Georgia, is set to open in late May or early June.
The intimate venue, designed to accommodate between 200 and 280 music lovers depending on the seating configuration, will present a wide array of genres, including country, blues, singer-songwriters, rock, jazz, R&B and bluegrass. While the building conveys a casual, industrial barn-like vibe, the facility also incorporates state-of-the-art production equipment, designed to ensure that every seat is delivered a great sonic and visual experience.
The adjacent MadLife Grill will offer a selection of small plates, salads, sandwiches, steaks and seafood, along with nightly specials “to compliment the vibe of the musicians in our venue,” according to their website. Chef David Berry has been recognized by the James Beard Foundation as a Rising Star Chef of the 21st Century, and has previously worked at Pano’s and Paul’s, Chops, Pricci and Horseradish Grill.
A third component of the facility is a fully functional, professionally installed and operated recording studio that can be booked for recording projects.
The first official music event at the space is scheduled for Friday, June 3rd, with two shows by Michigan rockers Wayland. Other highlights from the first few weeks include Atlanta-based blues/soul man AJ Ghent on June 11th, Athens-based pop curiosity Wrenn on June 30th, country firecracker Sonia Leigh on July 9th and laid-back Atlanta Americana combo Jackson County Line on July 20th.
