Logjam Presents is finally opening its new 1,100-capacity The Elm in Bozeman, Montana, on Sept. 3 and has announced a schedule of shows stretching into April.

The first show will feature Death Cab for Cutie on Sept. 3 and will be followed by Louis the Child on Sept. 7, Perfume Genius on Sept. 11 and Future Islands on Sept. 14.

“The ELM will fill an important need for the Bozeman community,” said Nick Checota, Logjam Presents CEO and talent buyer, in a statement. “With the new ELM venue, nationally touring artists will now have a dedicated, state-of-the-art facility right along the I-90 corridor.”

Other Logjam venues include the Rialto in Bozeman and Top Hat, The Wilma, KettleHouse Amphitheater and Ogren Park in Missoula.

KettleHouse Amphitheater is set to host Brandi Carlile for three nights starting July 2, as well as Trampled by Turtles, For King & Country, Sheryl Crow, ZZ Top and others this summer.

Checota previously spoke to VenuesNow about Logjam’s post-COVID plans, saying that he thinks the Montana market is changing dramatically.

“In Montana, we’re booming. People are fleeing California and Washington and Portland for a variety of reasons, so our real estate market and our overall economy — other than entertainment and restaurants — has absolutely gone berserk. Property values are soaring,” Checota said. “Our population is exploding. There are so many out-of-state plates here. COVID has changed the complexion of Montana, I think permanently.”
