CQ Presents to handle booking at T.T. The Bear's Place in Cambridge


CQ, meet T.T.’s.

The Phoenix can confirm that CQ PRESENTS, the Boston-based booking agency that oversees nightly live music at Allston venues Great Scott and O’Briens Pub, has been hired to handle full-time booking of T.T. The Bear’s Place in Cambridge.

CQ talent buyers Carl Lavin and Josh Smith met this afternoon with T.T.’s management and ownership, and an official press release is scheduled to be released Monday. Last week, Randi Millman resigned as booking agent of of the Central Square venue after 17 years.   

In a move to strengthen the network between the three venues, CQ Presents has also added to its team Kevin Hoskins, the former booking agent at the Middle East and formerly of Emo’s in Austin, Texas.

"As the longest-standing independent rock club in the Boston area we feel it's a great fit to partner up with another independent promotion company," T.T.'s manager Kevin Patey said when reached Friday afternoon. "They have a well established track record of booking fantastic touring acts and a stellar reputation among the local music community."

In addition to Great Scott, O’Brien’s and now T.T.’s, CQ also brings touring acts to the 595-capacity Middle East Downstairs, and has a partnership with Bowery Boston’s live music shows at Royale, which has a listed capacity of 775. Both Great Scott and T.T.'s have a capacity in the neighborhood of 240, while O'Brien's holds roughly 80 patrons. 

No changes are currently planned to T.T.’s current operation or schedule, which hosts live music six nights a week as well as DJ Chris Ewen’s Saturday night new wave party, Heroes. The Brookline Avenue nightclub was also the home to this year's Rock And Roll Rumble.

More to come on Monday.
