Kieran Fallon resigned today as booking agent at the Middle East’s downstairs room, just three months after replacing longtime talent buyer Kevin Hoskins at the Cambridge rock club.
The shakeup was confirmed by Middle East owner Nabil Sater late Thursday evening.
“I think Kieran wanted to go back to school,” Sater said when reached via telephone.
While sources told the Phoenix that Rock On Concerts’ Dan Millen will assume the role of talent buyer for both of the club's two live music rooms -- which includes the 595-person downstairs venue -- Sater said no final decision has been made regarding Fallon’s replacement. UPDATE: Shred gets the job. Millen currently oversees booking of the club’s 194-person capacity upstairs, which houses local bands and up-and-coming acts. The downstairs mostly caters to national touring bills.
“There won’t be any major changes,” he added. “We’re going to do it in-house... we’re talking to the people who are here.”
Sater said a decision will be announced soon.
Fallon served as the Middle East’s box office manager for eight years before being tapped as the replacement for Hoskins, who in June relocated to Texas to book shows at Emo’s in Austin. Hoskins had booked the Middle East since 2004.
