The venue will also host headlining shows by Pixies, The Struts, Tegan and Sara, Franz Ferdinand, Billy Idol, Spoon, Portugal. the Man, The Walkmen, and more.

Tickets for these shows will be priced at $44 each, non-transferable, and will be sold via a lottery-style process. Ticket request forms are currently open.

“After the opening series, our intention is to book only the shows that matter,” said Seth Hurwitz, chairman of I.M.P and owner of The Atlantis, in a statement. “We want people to rely on us to tell them that someday you will say you saw them when. We have no calendar to fill. We will curate like no other venue.”
