Output: Douchey Velvet-Rope Shitfuck Jersey Shore Cologne Tourist Trap Electro Dance Club Coming to Williamsburg

Because why should the Meatpacking District and Miami have all the ravey-glo-stick fun?

The next promising arrival is Output, a 452-person-capacity nightclub at 74 Wythe Avenue opening in the next few weeks that looks to give the neighborhood’s discerning electronic dance music contingent a place other than legally dubious warehouses and lofts to check out its favorite deejays.

A source familiar with the project told The Commercial Observer that Output will be one of two venues operating under separate leases at the 11,424-square-foot building (up from 7,324 square feet after the construction of a second floor). The main club (and restaurant) will be joined by a back room and roughly 2,500 square feet of outdoor rooftop space, together accommodating up to 348 people.

As a fully licensed club with a full, legal bar and a sound system not trucked in by a rented U-Haul—the speakers are by the revered Funktion One—Output hopes to revive the city’s desiccated nightlife scene. It’s practically in a league of its own in north Brooklyn. But it should also give the few remaining biggish dance floors in Manhattan—Pacha, District 36, Santos Party House—not squeezed out by soaring rents, police raids or the post-Giuliani regulatory vise a run for their money.

Output has already positioned itself as a grownup home for Brooklyn’s underground techno and house showcases—don’t call them raves—by booking a Bunker party on February 22. Bunker, arguably the city’s premier pop-up home for recondite techno talent—has been a monthly affair held since 2007 at the 4,000-square-foot Public Assembly in Williamsburg. Time will tell if Blkmarket Membership, Mister Saturday night and Resolute—other roving Brooklyn electronic music parties in a similar vein to Bunker—will follow.

MGMT Drummer Birthday Party: Open Bar Tonight At New Bushwick Venue, Delinquency




MGMT’s drummer Will Berman is celebrating his birthday tonight — and everyone is invited.

The soon-to-open venue Delinquency, a colorful newly renovated space on Grand Street by the Bushwick border, is hosting a free party and concert with three bands and an open bar starting at 8 p.m…

Tonight’s concert — which also celebrates Saverance’s 28th birthday — comes after years of scheming to open a venue in the Bushwick area, Saverance said, who joined forces with his two best friends Julian Vigoroux and Landon Webb after they worked in different bars in the Lower East Side and hosted DIY events in Brooklyn.

“Our space is a warehouse that had been gutted and was empty for 40 years,” Saverance said of the space on 1031 Grand St., which he claimed was the first air conditioning factory in the United States.
The bands playing tonight include Kings of Belmont and Zach Mexico’s Latest Side Project, according to the venue’s site.
