House of Blues get ready to expand

The House of Blues chain of clubs has completed a recapitalization (no I don’t know what that is) and are set to expand, possibly internationally. I like the House of Blues clubs (I realize that they are involved in a hotel and other venues but I’m talking strictly about the clubs) as I think they are some of the best places to see shows and they form a sort of reasonably sized ready made tour itinerary for bands too big for your local show bar but not big enough for the bigger sized venues that hold over 1000 people. They remind me a bit of the old ballroom circuit of the late ‘60s. They’re not perfect but they’re not bad.
