Remember The Globe East? You know, the legendary East Side music club that opened in 1993 and closed in 2003? The one located at 2028 E. North Ave. before the space hosted [deep breath] Live, Lava, The Hotel Foster, Snack Boys, Plant Boys, Nice Times, and a “Las Vegas-inspired” sports bar that was announced earlier this year but never actually happened? Yeah, that Globe.

Well, 20 years after The Globe East’s closure, a Globe East “reunion show” has been set for Saturday, September 2 at The Miramar Theatre. The lineup has yet to be announced—a few reunions have been promised—but the show will run from 3 p.m. – midnight. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. All proceeds will go to WMSE 91.7.

The show is being put together by former Globe owner Leah Miranda and Milwaukee music veteran Jeff Hamilton. We’ll have more info when it becomes available. Long live The Globe!
