Todd P, one of the city's top local independent music promoters, helped open up a new venue last night in Bushwick/East Williamsburg, aka East Williamsburg Industrial Park. It's called Danbro Studios Warehouse, and it's home is in a mid-1800s raw warehouse, previously home to the Goldenrod Brewery, a 1930's-era beer manufacturer long shuddered, a victim of prohibition.
The venue's first show featured popular Minneapolis punk rock band Dillinger 4 (bio) as they celebrated the release of Civil War, their first LP since 2002's Situationist Comedy. Last night, the band was joined by the Measure, Carnal Knowledge, and the Ergs, who are in the midst of their last tour as a band, marking the occasion the last official New York show. D4 play two sold out shows tonight and tomorrow at the Irving Plaza.
As for the Warehouse, its owners plan to build out the space as an official Brooklyn music venue, and are looking forward to their next event, rumored to be on Halloween. With vaulted ceilings, an elevated outdoor plaza, and a roomy interior, Danbro Studios has the chance of being that Brooklyn venue your friends came to write home about. Click here for more pictures.
