• NEWS: MCCARREN’S DAYS NMBRD

    By Ben Sisario

    “…Perhaps no other concert space so clearly illustrates the swift effects of gentrification. Just as bohemian culture in Greenpoint and Williamsburg is having its most visible, celebratory moment, it is being bulldozed out of the neighborhood. Rows of gleaming luxury condominiums have sprung up alongside the park, and the tattoo-and-skinny-jeans set is getting priced out.

  • NEWS: OPENING A ROCK CLUB IN NYC

    New Club Twins Rock ’N’ Bowl
    By Ben Sisario – NYTimes

    “Opening a rock club in New York is not as easy as it used to be. There’s the insane cost of real estate, as well as fierce competition as the battered music industry looks to live performances for steady income, and national promoters expand their reach into smaller spaces.

That’s why he’s excited about Brooklyn Bowl, his spacious new room in Williamsburg. A combination 600-capacity music club and 16-lane bowling alley, it will also have a menu created by Blue Ribbon, a chain of restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn.” [Read More]

  • NEWS: STUDIO 54 THE SERIES

    By Michael Starr – NYPost

    “Studio 54, that shrine to sex, drugs and disco, is getting its own TV series – but without a Jagger, Capote or Warhol in sight.

    The immortal Manhattan nightclub, which defined ’70s excess in all its hedonistic glory, will be the centerpiece of “Studio,” a new drama series airing on Showtime.” [Read More]
