Yesterday, Radio Bushwick announced that it would be temporarily closing due to “landlordly legal-biz.” Their scheduled CMJ shows have been moved to Lot 45 in Bushwick. Brooklyn Mag speculates that the abrupt closure is a result of building violations and thinks the club’s future looks grim:
We took a peek at the building’s DOB records and found four violations from the past year that might have something to do with the venue’s closure.
The first two were issued back in July for an illegal conversion of a manufacturing building “to commercial bar and cabaret with music.” The DOB lists two more violations issued in September, both for “illegal occupancy.”
The latest one was dished out on September 24th by an emergency response team in conjunction with the super scary sounding NYPD-organized, M.A.R.C.H (Multi-Agency Response to Community Hotspots), AKA the Dance Police, Party Poopers, Dangler Death Dealers, et al.
Yeesh. Sounds like the party might be over.
Fingers crossed that they reopen soon!
