One of the coolest events happening in Bushwick this whole month goes down tonight at Palisades. Electronic soundscape duo Teengirl Fantasy premeire their new EP with the help of Lawdawfah and DJ set from Pictureplace. Doors at midnight. We. are. there!

#1 Any “Secret Show” @ Death By Audio, 49 South 2nd St (TH/FR/SAT, 8PM, $10)

You probably heard that beloved DIY stronghold Death By Audio is closing, but its last days snuck up so fast! If you want to have the time of your life with hundreds of sweaty music buffs to a mystery rock/punk/garage soundtrack, or lying in a massive hammock, or in a laser-lit closet, you gotta be committed. Show up at 7:30 or earlier to get in line, then hope you make it inside to be shocked and amazed by the day’s legendary acts (and the epic art exhbit in the space). Because you might tell your kids about this place one day. Check clues for the day’s acts here. #RIPDIY
