Well, it turns out the club will indeed close at the end of October and move into the Agora. Just this week, Peabody’s released a schedule of events that includes four or five shows a week at the Agora starting with a Pelican show on Nov. 1.

‘We’re not messing around. We’re going to hit it hard right away and we have a nice full fall calendar,’ says Zitterbart, adding that he’s unsure if he will retain the Peabody’s name. ‘The Agora has a historic place in Cleveland’s music history and the fact that Hank has created such a recognizable brand name is appealing. I’ve owned Peabody’s for eight years now and when we close, it will be bittersweet. But the opportunity to start over with the Agora name is pretty cool.’

Zitterbart says he’s already begun making improvements to the venue and has just installed radiant heat in the theater. ‘It will be a significant upgrade from what we’ve seen in the past,’ he says."
