bring your friend, see the bands, try our beer
Get in the bathroom line 12 minutes before you think you have to pee!
There's nothing fashionable about being late to the party at this BK art space and music venue. Shows typically end by 1am, so start your night here, then head to Cameo for an all-out dance party.
Rami loves random hugs from strangers
If you're seeing shows here then you're probably catching the next big band right before they blow up. Popgun Booking does an amazing job with this space. A must for indie music lovers!
Newly renovated bathrooms! If you never used the old ones, you never lived. You also probably never contracted HIV.
Probably the best venue in all of new york
I can't believe this place is legal, but I'm glad it apparently is.
Glassland Gallery's recent renovation has turned it from a wild DIY space to a wild official venue. A must see for an indie music fans.
Glasslands continues to thrive despite looming condos sprouting up around the space. "Cosy" doesn't even begin to describe this venue, where the decor is glorious and ever-changing.
New additional to Glasslands. An ATM!!!!
Tons of great bands play here. I just wish it wasn't so far from the train.
Try the negroni :-D
An anything goes club; home to after parties and some of the hottest secret shows in the city.
Amazing selection of music and a wonderful collection of people always. Come check out a show!
Besides possibly being Brooklyn's best small venue, its also the loudest. They sell earplugs at the bar for $2. Cash only!
Apart from its like-kind neighbor (285 Kent), the best place in Brooklyn for an intimate show with great bands. Grab a cheap tallboy at the bar and \m/
A South Williamsburg staple since 2006, Glasslands is a converted warehouse where partiers enjoy live music and a photobooth.
so many good shows at this venue. always great lineups.
Look up. The pink clouds are straight out of Katy Perry's teenage dream. Also, don't mention Katy Perry whilst inside.
AC! AC! AC! and there is ATM, too, right at the door.
Best place to find indie rock bands
"Another smelly music venue in the heart of PBR city. It's a cool place with good views of the stage from all around. A trip to the photo booth after midnight is mandatory." -New Cassettes
If you arrive late, head upstairs. The sound is fantastic and the rail has one of the best viewing spots in the city.
“It's on a stretch of Kent Avenue that doesn’t see much traffic & is relatively unmarked, so look for a smokers in front of a tagged wall.” More at
love love love this venue, check their blog regularly to find out what's going on.
They need to install some AC here. Everyone including the bands look like they are going to pass out. Also, watch out for the pigs, they like to circle this block and harass you for standing outside.
Hard to find, but worth the trek.
this place smells like feet.
Great space with a loft. One of the better NYC music venues.
Dance, dance, it's a revolution!
One of my favorite places to go check new bands. Check their site before going, as some events require a ticket and get sold out (specially on Fridays)
upstairs is really cool during a crowded show.
If you're the mayor here, you get free drinks for the night!
Now that 285 next door is also booking indie bands, some say this venue has mellowed a bit. We say the more, the merrier. Definitely worth going out of your way for. Loud music/Cheap beers/friendly
The upstairs balcony banister is a good place to stash your coats...
Don't see bad bands. Don't let dumb, drunk NYU kids ruin the show for you.
Great venue needs dark beer
A secret music box in Williamsburg. The small stage, chill crowd, and great bookings are just a few reasons why this is one of my top venues. Saw SBTRKT, shigeto, BBF, fujiya&miyagi here!
Indie music love! ❤
EDIT: there is an ATM and they added more bathrooms.
