Zebulon Is Closing


Now this sucks. Zebulon is one of the best reasons to visit Williamsburg and now they are about to close. Utterly without pretense, Zebulon was one of the few places in the neighborhood where you could see music performed by musicians NOT wearing skinny jeans. This Brooklyn institution will be missed.

From a press release posted on Gothamist:

“On Sunday, Dec 9 Zebulon will be closing its doors after ten exciting years of pioneering music and arts. Williamsburg has changed significantly since we opened, and unfortunately it is no longer possible today to continue the business in the manner in which it was conceived. Nevertheless, it’s been a great run. This is our final week so if you haven’t been down in a while, please come and say hello/wave goodbye, and pay your respects to this gem of an institution.”

According to Gothamist:

Their final week will include appearances by TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone, The Arcade Fire’s Sarah Neufeld, and more. As always, there will be no covers, and a happy hour lasting from 5 to 8 p.m.

    Oh crap.

    Is it really over out here?

    What music venue is left on the Northside that’s worth doing on any given weeknight, and won’t cost you multiple $20s?

    RIP Black Betty, Rose, etc…….

    I’m sad to see it go!
    Was a bright spot for the area

  3. A shame indeed, though with a heavily afro-beat schedule suspected it was only a matter of time before rising rents and an increasingly generic population caught up with Zebulon. Always a great vibe and welcome/much needed escape from so many of the otherwise typical hipster.

  4. meh whatever, bring back Kokie’s
