Death by Audio

Map & Directions 49 S. 2nd St.
Brooklyn, NY 11211


Village Voice's Description

Ceiling panels, a backroom bar arcade, murals on the wall, graffiti, and cigarette smoke have long been hallmarks of one of Williamsburg’s best-known DIY spots, Death By Audio. But the management has recently taken steps to try and curb some of the more excessive behavior that’s been known to happen here. (Two recent postings: This is NOTa BYOB space; smoking is BY LAW NOT allowed inside.) But as much as the organizers of Death By Audio try and stop the over-the-top behavior, they continue to offer music programming that's off-the-wall. Death By Audio is a favorite spot for lo-fi rockers, experimental acts, brazen punk practitioners, and, well, just about anything loud and energetic. The benefits of these kind of shows? You never feel out of place, either when thrashing wildly, pumping fists along to every song, or simply idling in the back, watching the scene unfold.   --Dale Eisinger
