The Cameo

"Not much information is available yet, but the unfortunately named The Cameo "is a venue in the heart of Williamsburg that functions as a visual art gallery by day, and a music venue by night. A cross between Pianos and the Mercury Lounge, the Cameo is booking some of New York and Brooklyn's most promising musical talent. With several bands per night, the rich sound and provocative wall art create a sensory experience not to be missed. Attached to N. 6th Street's Lovin Cup Cafe, the building offers a prime destination spot. Catch a show in the back Cameo space, and enjoy a late night burger served up at the Lovin Cup."

The space will be 150-capacity with 30-foot ceilings, and we've [Gothamist] heard some promising things about the sound and atmosphere. Hopefully it'll be able to last on the sonically saturated stretch of the street (The Music Hall of Williamsburg and Public Assembly are nearby). Doesn't look like the space will be ready until early '09, so stay tuned..." [Gothamist]

As the band Cameo has warned us, this venue will be subject to raids by police detective LeVar Burton and a pair of cops. Our only hope is that the bands performing play grooves so infectious that the cops have no choice but to start dancing themselves.

yes, it'll survive. as long as clubs keep opening up, there will be more of an opportunity for bands to play out. can it survive that horrible name, though? that's the question.....

I heard the guy from 2 1/2 Men owns it. Not Sheen, but the other fellow.

give us music, we can use it, we need to dance, we don't have the time for psychological romance

"...Doesn't look like the space will be ready until early '09, so stay tuned..." Care for an update of this awesome gig venue.
