Silent Barn, one of our the favorite DIY music venues has just announced they just signed a lease and will be moving to a building at 603 Bushwick, a few blocks from the Myrtle-Broadway JMZ stop. Silent Barn sounds really excited on their website:
It is 10,000 square feet, 3 storeys, mixed use, legally occupiable andCOMPLETELY INSANE. In addition to nightly concerts, Silent Barn will now be home to over a dozen studios for artists and entrepreneurs, 8 residential tenants, and a large community garden.
Silent Barn has been massively robbed in July 2011. The space has lead a successful Kickstarter campaign, and raised over $40k proving that they have a really strong community standing behind them. Silent Barn has committed to renovate the space, and the reconstruction is scheduled for the next month and a half. They plan to host first concerts in late December.Silent Barn is accepting applications for residential and stewdios tenants and mobilizing bookers, curators and promoters, and volunteers. Get in touch if you’re interested. Exciting!
