Sound Fix Records opening night of new venue w/ The Mountain Goats

I almost missed this press release about Sound Fix:

After nearly five long months of renovation, the Williamsburg indie record shop Sound Fix has officially reopened its beloved lounge and music space, the site of many memorable shows over the years, including Beirut, Will Oldham, the Hold Steady, The National, the Mountain Goats, Jens Lekman, Art Brut and many other great bands and artists. In June alone, such stellar musical guests as the Sea and Cake, the Ladybug Transistor, the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players, Oneida, Ida and A Sunny Day in Glasgow are scheduled for live appearances; the list grows rapidly every day. Monday night parties featuring midnight sales on Tuesday's big new releases will become a unique and regular affair, and a music trivia night will be a weekly happening, with prizes like gift certificates to the record store and exclusive music giveaways.

Located in the Northside of Williamsburg at 110 Bedford Ave (corner of N. 11th St.), the Sound Fix Lounge has been given a complete makeover, top to bottom, with a new fully stocked bar, elevated stage, high-quality sound system, ambiance lighting, polished furniture and lavish decor. Plans for this improved space include not only live music events but also readings, theater, film screenings, game nights, comedy, private parties and more.

For years, the Sound Fix record shop has worked in collaboration with the neighboring Fix Café. Earlier this year, Sound Fix bought out the café and has been working on uniting the two spaces like never before. Now it is truly one venue, a record store attached to a comfortable, spacious lounge that serves coffee and waffles (our specialty) during the day and offers a full bar at night, offering $2 PBRs around the clock and competitive prices on well and top-shelf liquor.

The Sound Fix Lounge is now open to receiving submissions for prospective shows, parties and unique happenings, and will film and record many of the events for web and media interaction (podcasting, public access, etc.)

Upcoming shows:

Mon Jun 18 - 10pm White Stripes Party (win tix to Irving Plaza)
Tue Jun 19 - 8pm Music Trivia Tuesday!
Fri Jun 22 - 7pm Geoff Farina (of Karate) 8pm Ida
Sun Jun 24 - 2pm The Bridesmaids
Tue Jun 26 - 8pm Music Trivia Tuesday!
Tue Jul 3 - 8pm Music Trivia Tuesday!
Thu Jul 5 - La Otracina
Tue Jul 10 - 8pm Music Trivia Tuesday!
Thu Jul 12 - The Places 8pm Comedian Patton Oswalt!
Sat Jul 14 - Balun
Sun Jul 15 - Land Of Talk
Tue Jul 17 - 8pm Music Trivia Tuesday!

let's hope that Soundfix the venue has more life and love of music culture than Soundfix the record store does.

it's like a fucking super tense indie rock museum piece in there.

Geez, lighten up guys and let the place ramble a little. Put up some fliers!

Too clean and too uptight and bad vibes from the staff.

Will Oldham, the Mountain Goats, Sea and Cake, the Ladybug Transistor, Ida, the dude from Karate - all in a room full of ambiance lighting, polished furniture, and 'lavish' decor.

Indie rock sure has gotten dull and OLD.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow had lots of trouble (only did 3-4 songs, probs with bass drum). Was their loft show better?
