Sean Moeller is a familiar name in the Quad Cities as someone who brings talented performers to the area and a man who's key to making sure we have enough local venues to support the music and creative arts acts who come here.

His latest concert venue project is called The Rust Belt which he plans to open in mid-December and according to Sean's Facebook page, he will announce its first shows within a couple of weeks

The new 4,000-capacity room in a former industrial space (the East Moline Metal Products site, off 12th Avenue near The Bend development, at 1201 7th St., East Moline) is expected to host four to six concerts a month, with the average ticket cost approximately $35.

Season tickets for The Rust Belt will be $250, for all shows over the course of a year. There will be 500 season tickets available at moellernights.com/rustbelt.

Moeller co-founded Daytrotter and is he concert booker for Codfish Hollow in Maquoketa, Iowa, and The Stardust and Raccoon Motel in Davenport.

The new venue multi-phase development is expected to include an architectural design studio, a wood and fabrication shop, a metal shop, retail store, coffee shop, a grocery store/cafe, an indoor farmers market, a brewery and a restaurant.
