Brighton Music Hall is seeking city approval to increase its capacity by 40 percent.

The live performance venue along Brighton Avenue in Allston hopes to raise its 340-person capacity to 476, according to city records.

A hearing about the request is scheduled to be held Monday by the city’s consumer affairs and licensing office in City Hall Room 817 at 10 a.m.

The location’s request for a larger capacity was first reported on by the Universal Hub blog. http://www.universalhub.com/2012/brighton-music-hall-wants-get-bigger

Brighton Music Hall opened in early 2011 taking over a space where the Harper’s Ferry concert nightclub operated for 40 years.

The current venue’s owners, Joe Dunne, Declan Mehigan, and Don Law, have described Brighton Music Hall as a feeder club, or “development room” for the Paradise, an 850-capacity live music club the three business partners own less than a mile away on Commonwealth Avenue near Boston University.

One month after opening Brighton Music Hall, the ownership trio also reportedly bought a 50 percent stake in the 2,425-capacity House of Blues behind Fenway Park.
