DALLAS - The big scissors came out on Thursday for the ribbon cutting of Dallas' newest music venue -- The Bomb Factory! And everyone's got high hopes that the tunes in this Deep Ellum location are da bomb.

"Its super exciting, like I said we've been working on this for a couple of years and we're finally excited to get to this point," said Clint Barlow, owner of The Bomb Factory.

The 50,000 square foot space will host up to 4,300 people. Hey, that's a lot of headbangers.

The sold out grand opening kicks off with performances by homegrown artists R&B star Erykah Badu and Sarah Jaffe.

"Dallas people, Dallas club, ready to rock and roll it," Barlow said.

But this isn't the first time big acts to play on The Bomb Factory main stage. The venue was a popular spot in the 90s for groups like the Toadies back in the day.

"Had a lot of fun. Hated to see it go away. It's super cool to be a part and bring it back,” said Barlow.

From the looks of things, the Deep Ellum music scene is reaching a crescendo.
