Death by Audio, the beloved music venue in Williamsburg that's been tirelessly booking emerging talent since 2006, is sadly shuttering its doors this month. Vice is taking over the lease for the entire building on South 2nd and Kent, which is/was also home to like-minded establishments 285 Kent and Glasslands (a separate essay deserves to be written on the irony of this displacement). In addition to being a music performance space, Death by Audio is also home to 12 people and a popular custom guitar-pedal shop by the same name, run by Oliver Ackermann of the band A Place to Bury Strangers. For their final days, Death by Audio has no shortage of special programming in store, including a phenomenal 70+ artist exhibition, called Death by Art, which opened last night. For this immersive multimedia affair, they opened the rarely seen residential loft to the public, with installations even in people's bedrooms, in addition to the building's copious other nooks and crannies. The exhibit will be open from 2-7pm every weekend, and from 8pm-12am every night for patrons of the music venue, until they close for good on November 22nd. Check out pics of the scene at the opening of this diy mega-show, below. And special shout-out to EyeBodega for their creepy-cool holographic video (image 5), of ubiquitous DBA music curator/booker Edan Wilbur waving goodbye, which pretty much stole the show.
