The Locks at Sona4417 MAIN ST, MANAYUNK, PA 19127When the Old City club Tin Angel closed its doors in February 2017, owner Donal McCoy vowed to keep alive the storied venue’s approach to presenting live music to Philadelphians in an intimate environment. A year and a half later, the Northern Irish barman is back in business with the Locks at Sona, a listening room that is set to open in Manayunk on Sept. 21 with a lineup that will look familiar to fans of the Tin Angel, whose Second Street space now is home to Peruvian restaurant Vista Peru. The Locks is like the Tin Angel in that it’s a second-story club situated above an eatery — in this case the Irish gastropub Sona, at 4417 Main St. It is a joint venture between McCoy and Larry Goldfarb, who booked the Tin for 24 years, along with Richard Kardon and Jesse Lundy of Point Entertainment. Kardon and Lundy, who book roots music shows at venues throughout the region (and also sometimes booked shows at the Tin), were responsible for bringing in talent at the Philadelphia Folk Festival from 2008 to 2017. They’re equal partners at the Locks, which will open with Philly singer-guitarist Jim Boggia. The new room will hold 125 — 10 more people than the Tin — with cabaret-style table seating that can be removed for shows at which it is more suitable for listeners to be up on their feet.
