Music Venues in Bushwick Overview

With classic hole-in-the-walls like CBGB’s and Coney Island High no longer able to make rent in Manhattan, Bushwick music venues have become the new face of the DIY movement. These cobbled-together Brooklyn party zones present a gritty, down-to-earth take on the average concert.

Sure, some music venues in Bushwick provide a traditional bar and stage; The Acheron, located next to the Anchored Inn, showcases the best metal, crust, and drone on the East Coast. But these venues are still small and gritty, with a tiny capacity and a niche fan-base of hardened rockers and wild heavy-drinking headbanger chicks, who, while laid-back and fun to engage, can be a little entrenched in the scene.

Bushwick’s best venues are weird, hard-to-find places like Shea Stadium, where one can watch indie rock and experimental electronic bands pour their hearts out onstage in blasts of discordant fury. Here, beardo hipsters and their laugh-a-minute art student girlfriends sip PBR served from coolers under card tables and soak up the chicest sounds they can find.

Keeping the punk rock dream alive with its mixture of affordability, progressive thinking, and DIY aesthetics, Bushwick music venues are ground zero for people on the cutting edge of modern rock and roll.
