Death By Audio closed in November 2014, and I still miss it every day. There were plenty of cameras during its last week (I was there 6 of the last 7 nights) and the final result is the documentary Goodnight Brooklyn – The Death By Audio Story, which will premier at SXSW next month. Closer to home, there is a TBD screening at the NYC Independent Film Festival, which runs from the 27th of April until the 1st of May.
Goodnight Brooklyn - The Story of Death By Audio brings viewers inside the last underground venue for music and art in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a neighborhood once defined by its cultural contributions to the city of New York. The film chronicles the origins, community-building, influence and ultimate closure of one of Brooklyn’s best DIY venues, ironically at the hands of a former champion of their efforts.
