So much for the Nightlife Mayor saving us. We’re about to lose another beloved and essential venue! Say it isn’t so! In 2012, the Silent Barn entered a new phase of our ongoing project by moving into a massive three-story building at 603 Bushwick Avenue. From the start, we were aware of the risks that […]
Prepping for a show this week, so a little strapped for time/energy/sanity. Apologies in advance. Now let’s talk new music.

TRENDING hardcore, CRAZY shows, and…figure skating? Yep, it’s another weird week here in Brooklyn Metaland. Let’s get to it.
