So much for the Nightlife Mayor saving us. We’re about to lose another beloved and essential venue! Say it isn’t so! In 2012, the Silent Barn entered a new phase of our ongoing project by moving into a massive three-story building at 603 Bushwick Avenue. From the start, we were aware of the risks that […]
You’ll see some familiar bands, faces and places discussed including Shea Stadium, Todd P, City Councilman Rafael Espinal, Beach Fossils, Frankie Cosmos, Silent Barn. In other words, “DIY in NYC” is essential viewing: From Rolling Stone: The short film travels through venues that have recently shuttered, ones struggling to stay on their feet, and ones […]
Happy February everyone! While some may consider it the worst month, it may come as sweet relief to those who managed to survive a dry January. This weekend is a time to celebrate local talent and enjoy something a little up close and personal.
Do you want to leave your house tonight but also feel pretty passionate about avoiding a run-in with NYC’s drunkest? Ya know, the green-adorned pub-goers who just can’t seem to leave their college days behind? They’re decorated with cheap plastic shamrock beads and leprechaun hats—perhaps a day as awful as Santacon in terms of public […]
You don’t need me wasting your time with chit-chat, there are weekend plans to be made, this time we bring you some site favourites and something out of left field. Enjoy!
Nooklyn, an apartment search website and app run by this guy ruffled some feathers over at Silent Barn yesterday. The company listed the club as an “amenity” to Bushwick’s Saint Marks Luxury Apartments which didn’t go over so well with the owners, who lashed out on Twitter: . @nooklyn Luxury housing raises rent for everyone […]
I managed to see my fellow Oxfordians, Radiohead, on Tuesday, so everything else this week may seem like a bit of a Let Down (although I saw them play that 10 years ago too). Still, while the bar has been set high, there are still some fantastic bands in town for the weekend!
Dilly ding, dilly dong. We can cut the smalltalk, you really have some great options this weekend and the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, Beverly, Waxahatchee and a Woods/Ultimate Painting double-header didn’t even make the cut. If you aren’t getting out to see a show, I’m not sure I can ever be any help.
Two bands perfectly bookended on either side of the punk spectrum bring their tour to Brooklyn this weekend with shows at Silent Barn (5/7) and Rough Trade (5/8). Montreal quartet Ought are still riding high on their last album, Sun’s Coming Down, via Constellation Records in 2015; a triumphant combination of The Fall, Talking Heads and Pavement. […]
Greetings! We’ve had a pretty good week on the music side of things, between us we’ve seen Vaadat Charigim at Palisades and my esteemed metal heads caught Iron Maiden last night. It’s 20 degrees celsius as I type this (let’s not talk of that silly farenheit…) and spring is in the air, by which I […]
