As a friend or client of PMD you may be familiar with our origins: way back in 1991, Dean Stallone started PMD Media from his NYU dorm room.
We’d like to take you back to the musty, carpeted halls of NYU’s Brittany dorm for a moment to introduce another character who’s been around since the beginning of PMD Media.
When Dean and George Eliou first met as freshmen in 1989 they were just young goofy kids. Twenty-eight years later, the two remain friends and colleagues.
Last night, George’s firm, Eliou & Scopelitis Steel Fabrication, in partnership with Bowery Presents, debuted their latest venture: Brooklyn Steel, a live music venue named for the red brick building’s original purpose as a steel works factory.
The East Williamsburg concert hall opened with a bang – LCD Soundsystem’s five night run sold out immediately – and promises a scintillating spring line-up, with future performances by indie rock superstars The Decemberists, Chairlift, Slow Dive, and lo-fi legends The Jesus and Mary Chain. We can’t wait to check out a show – and try one of the venue’s three (!) bars.
In celebration of the grand opening of Brooklyn Steel – and to thank George for his contributions to the New York performing arts scene – we’re sending our best wishes to Eliou & Scopelitis Steel Fabrication and Bowery Presents!
