Brooklyn Bowl under Bowery Presents umbrella

The Village Voice reports that new Williamsburg bowling alley/restaurant/concert space Brooklyn Bowl will now be booked under Bowery Presents, which already handles the Bowery Ballroom, the Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Mercury Lounge, and Terminal 5.

The paper asks will this have consequences for shows in Williamsburg. The answer? Probably not. "In theory, competition for Bowery Presents a), might've given bands more options in terms of where they could do shows and on what terms, and b), might've pulled down ticket prices a bit, should Brooklyn Bowl have decided to undersell the MHOW. But there was little indication of the latter happening--it costs $40-$50-per-hour just to bowl at BB when bands are playing, and the price of actual concert tickets was about even with those of Bowery Presents," reasons the Voice. "There wasn't much of a difference between Brooklyn Bowl and the Bowery Presents venues before this merger, and there's that much less of one now."

What are your thoughts on the relationship?
