Sound Academy teases reopening after massive renos

Sound Academy, Toronto's oft-derided lakeside music venue, is currently undergoing an extreme makeover. And rightly so, considering the space left much to be to be desired.

"The building was old, it was not laid out properly," says Ink Entertainment's Charles Khabouth in a new Sound Academy promo video. His company bought the Cherry Street complex a few years back.

Now, he and his team are renovating it. Earlier reports indicated that Studio Munge would be designing the massive venue, which would include multiple bars, a concert hall and a discreet backstage club.

But when will it be ready?

It now looks like you'll be able to check out the updated space in just a couple of months because Brand New's headlining a pair of shows there on June 9 and 10. AWOLNATION (along with Death From Above 1979) will also be dropping by on June 19. Yes, this vibe may not have been what I was expecting from new Sound Academy, but I'm totally okay with it.
