Man, I feel like all you hear about these days are band reunions. Not that it’s always a bad thing. I’m just getting the sense that a good chunk of them are cash grabs for bands that were MAYBE semi-relevant a decade ago. Release some new material, at least…
Before I dive into this week’s usual spiel… I have a VENUE ALERT for you.
Just when you thought you’ve seen everything, and have been to a show EVERYWHERE, another new DIY spot pops up. It’s hard to keep track of ‘em, but I thought I’d give a heads up to a newer space down in Bed-Stuy called Big Mouth.
The venue, located in the basement of 834 Myrtle Ave, was founded by the owners of Rooftop Shout Records. They originally planned on hosting house parties in the high-ceilinged, over-sized basement, but the space begged for more. A couple months later, someone let them have a PA on the cheap, a street-art crazed friend went nuts all over the walls and now they’re selling out ragers twice a month in the 200 capacity space. Co-founder Rowan Antony Bado envisions utilizing the space for more innovative, conceptual shows.
