April 2019 saw the re-opening of one of the most famous music venues in the USA, Webster Hall. The concert hall closed in August of 2017 but after the acquisition of the venue by AEG Presents and Barclays Center corporate parent, Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment, it underwent some renovations and came back stronger than ever. One thing was missing however, the fan-favorite club nights. 

The historic venue hosted its last club night with the legend himself, Skrillex, closing it out back in 2017. Since the reopening, it has seen acts like Jay-Z, TroyBoi, Chromeo, MGMT, and more. Fans of the famous club nights were yearning for the return of the more nightclub, late-night dance-focused shows. They took to Twitter to express this concern and the venue listened. Webster officially made the announcement of the return of Saturday nights by sharing the mass tweets in a short video. 

Webster Hall has been linked back all the way to 1886. It is a true historical site having featured artists like Julie Andrews, Bob Dylan, Prince, U2, Madonna, to more present-day acts like Tove Lo, LCD Soundsystem, Shiba San, and Dillon Francis. It's refreshing to see a venue hold on to its original charm and also listen to the hopes and concerns of the people who keep the venue open.
