Karla Lockhart and Jay Bulger, an East Village resident, are running the venue. Lockhart described it this way to EVG contributor Stacie Joy: "The Main Event is not just an art gallery or a place to buy high-end vintage memorabilia, but will also be a space for conversations and events necessary for these changing times in the 20s."
The first show is set to debut in October and feature photos of the late Lee "Scratch" Perry, whom Bulger once lived with and wrote about for Rolling Stone. Expect to find Bulger's photos of Perry and some other ephemera of the legendary reggae and dub producer.
