Last week the Demo (4191 Manchester Avenue) officially opened the doors at its new location, just down the street from its original space attached to Atomic Cowboy (4140 Manchester Avenue; 314-775-0775). RFT Music stopped by one of the music venue's debut shows to get a look at the room.

The shiny new show space sits directly to the right of recently established tour-de-force the Ready Room (4195 Manchester Avenue; 314-833-3929), separated by a lone hot-dog vendor schlepping grub on the sidewalk during busy nights for shows.

As promised, this incarnation of the Demo bears resemblance to the original, retaining its higher-set stage, dark walls and shotgun-style layout. We dropped by a concert featuring the Keneally-Bendian-Lunn trio, a group whose collective resume includes playing with Frank Zappa, Dethklok and Cecil Taylor.
