Sound Fix

"Marissa Nadler played the last live concert in Sound Fix Lounge on Saturday -- or did she?

Owner James Bradley vowed to keep putting on shows, despite losing his liquor license last month.

"It is my fervent hope and desire to continue the tradition of live music in Williamsburg," said Bradley, who plans to have an event on Record Store Day on April 18, and to host weekly performances.

Sound Fix Lounge, on North 11th Street, just west of Bedford Avenue, had its license expire at the end of February following noise complaints under the former owner.

But Bradley hasn't given up on shows entirely, though he admitted that coaxing patrons to live music would be difficult without alcohol.

"The two seem to go hand-in-hand," he said.

The article goes on to say that Sound Fix has no plans on closing the record store, though Bradley "added that his lease is up in a year".

Marissa Nadler also played in a church on Friday.

shouldnt be too tough considering almost every record store in the world that has in-stores doesn't sell booze.

Does this mean I can bring my own whiskey, order a coffee and make it Irish? Cuz I liked Fix when it was Fix Cafe, and I like Irish Coffee.

Been some great shows there. The Mountain Goats. Scritti Politti. Camera Obscura. The daytime shows during CMJ.

It is nice having a small room where good bands always play free shows. I am would be happy to still go without booze.

BYOB comedy/music shows at Sound Fix for $5-10 is way better than free shows with 2 for $5 PBR.

Is Sound Fix presenting music at Rooftop Films this summer?

"I am would be happy to still go without booze."

Are people in Williamsburg really this self-absorbed and selfish or are they just clueless? The reason why there was booze in the first place is to help pay for the free shows. Sound Fix is not a charity. The owner is not Mother Teresa. He needs to pay the rent, so he needs to collect either from admission or selling alcohol.

Let me guess, you probably download music illegally as well. Me me me. You want everything free.
