The Masquerade has finally departed its iconic home in the old Excelsior Mill on North Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward for Undergound Atlanta. The new address is 50 Lower Alabama St. in Kenny’s Alley.

The music venue posted this message on their Facebook page:

As many of you may have heard, the day that seemed would never arrive, came and went this past Sunday. We hosted our final shows at our beloved 695 North Avenue location. Yellowcard, Diet Cig, ASAP Ferg, Electric Citizen and many more helped send us off in grand style. Thanks to everyone who joined us for this long-anticipated emotional sendoff!

Now, forward! As we empty our old spot, we are also preparing the new spot. Several months of renovation are just about done! Every advertised show going forward will take place in the new Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory locations in Kenny’s Alley of Underground Atlanta. Please join us and check out what we have done. We think you will like it!

Parking is plentiful in the MLK parking deck with the Underground Atlanta neon sign. The taxi and Uber drop off and pick up point is located at the corner of MLK Dr. and Central Ave., right beside the old World of Coke. Come check us out!

Keep an eye on http://move.masq.in for more detailed information including directional maps along with an FAQ about our new home.

The mill complex, which was home to the Masquerade since 1989, is being transformed into a mixed-use residential and food hall.
