PILSEN — Thalia Hall's music lineup has been announced, with Noah Lennox of Panda Bear kicking off the first May show in the restored theater.

The Panda Bear show is May 21. Subsequent bands include Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle (June 6), The Mavericks (June 8) ,and Camera Obscura (July 25), among others.

The theater, at 1807 S. Allport St., is on the second floor of the multi-use building, which also contains restaurant and lounge spaces, Dusek's Board and Beer and Punch House, which opened in the fall.

Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden — who also own the Empty Bottle — applied for the theater's liquor and entertainment licenses in February; their request is pending. Martin Van Ruin was filmed in the venue in December playing "Put it Away," although the venue wasn't open to the public at the time. The video shows the ornate theater as it was being renovated. 

 The artist Panda Bear will be the first to play at Thalia Hall's music venue.

The theater features four opera boxes on either side of the stage. Thalia Hall plans to sell tickets for them — which are good for up to six people — for some shows.

Tickets for Panda Bear's May 21 show run $18 in advance, $20 at the door, and $27 for balcony. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Tickets for all Thalia Hall shows go on sale Saturday at 11 a.m.
