With the closings of Glasslands and Death By Audio coming soon (not to mention this, this, this , this and this) Williamsburg is feeling pretty gutted these days. Appropriately, the artist collective Cheryl is throwing a funeral dance party to “celebrate” all the closings called “Nail in the Coffin.” They’re encouraging people to come dressed as Starbucks baristas, Scruge McDuck and more. We suggest coming as Jed Walentas, Stephen Levin, or Vice Media founders Shane Smith and Suroosh Alvi.
From the Cheryl website:
A Dance Party Funeral for the neighborhood of Willamsburg. Come mourn the end of era with us before Glasslands closes its doors in Williamsburg forever. In lieu of flowers, a $10 cover will be accepted at the door on behalf of CHERYL.
11:30pm-4am calling hours at Glasslands Gallery, 289 Kent Ave, Brooklyn.
Need costume inspiration? Just Accept Death.Think FUNeral, Victorian Mourning Merkins, Starbucks Baristas, All Black Everything, Whole Foods Suttee, Goth Immigrants, Winking Widows, Vintage Sorrow, Mast Brothers Conquistadors, Asian Tapas, and Scrooge McDuck.
Help us celebrate the former vibrant life of Williamsburg and send us your favorite memory in text or photo form. Stories / Pictures / Memories — we want to collect them all and celebrate together at CHERYL: Nail in the Coffin. Please send information directly to our attention at [email protected]
