Artistic Dir/Sr Talent Buyer
The Wick
As a booker, talent buyer, concert promoter etc., Chris White has helped shape the sound of New York rock since 1995. Starting as longtime talent buyer for beloved rock dive Brownies he moved on to become Showcase Director of the CMJ Music Marathon from 2000 to 2005. From there White went on to work for a bigger concert promotions company, handling the booking duties for Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theatre and Avalon, among others. A short stint with Knitting Factory established the venue as an instant power-player in their new Williamsburg location. White currently holds the position of Creative Director and Sr. Talent Buyer for The Wick and The Well, two of Brooklyn's most eagerly anticipated new live music venues, combining 25,000 square feet of the historic Hittleman Brewery to create a massive multi-venue, multi-purpose music fortress.
