How desperately does Atlanta need a 300-person capacity music venue with amazing acoustics located in a neighborhood that embraces its mission? It almost happened and still could if a buyer steps up to the plate. Local artist and musician Evan Levy has spent the last year converting The Temple, an AME church on Wylie Street in Reynoldstown, into an amazing event space. Renovation of the two-story granite building with original heart of pine floors and 20 stunning stained glass windows is nearly complete, and it’s already been re-zoned commercial. Several big-name touring artists have already inquired about recording in the space — the acoustics have to be heard to be believed. Now it just needs a loving owner to make it happen. For details, see 889wylie.com.
