Aviv is closing in October


Because we’re not allowed to have nice things anymore in Brooklyn. Ugh. At least Acheron is back and Elsewhere is coming soon. From Aviv’s Facebook page:

Hey all, we’re sad to announce that Aviv in it’s current location will be closing when our lease is up at the end of October. We have a ton of amazing farewell shows that will be announced over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out. This is not the last you’ll hear from us. We’re working hard to reopen somewhere else, we’re in too deep to ever stop. Thank you for all your love and music. It’s been a crazy two years.

Acheron has just three more shows this weekend


As mentioned before, Bushwick’s beloved club Acheron is closing after Saturday. They have a show tonight and two tomorrow, before saying goodbye:
