It’s always sad to hear of impending venue closures like Brooklyn Bazaar, come to think of it we’re almost at the 5-year anniversary of Vice media ripping Death By Audio out of our still beating hearts (still not over it). Anyway, let’s try to be a bit more positive with these excellent shows…
Please don’t die in the ghastly heatwave we’re going to have this weekend, remember to stay hydrated wherever you are and enjoy concerts responsibly.
