Market Hotel (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Market Hotel

"so.... Market Hotel got into some police trouble. What does this mean? Hard to tell. Places have survived such things before, including Market Hotel, but every situation is different and we will have to wait and see. For the near future, Market Hotel will go dark, and scheduled events will be relocated. The longterm goal remains as it always has been: to make Market Hotel a licensed community space... but money is a challenge of course. We have consulted many times with architects / lawyers and it is attainable! If you want to help achieve that goal, please get in touch @ themarkethotel@gmail.com. Thanks for your support!"

Please remember, shows in other spots are not affected - including tonight's Easter punk show at Monster Island Basement. Come out, it'll be terrific, and triumphant!" [Todd P]

The trouble happened last night at the Smith Westerns / Golden Triangle show. Get in touch with Todd or Market Hotel (see above) if you want to help.

why did they call that place a hotel? It is not a hotel.

1:11PM maybe they wanted to be ironic?

sucks they aren't doing shows at the market hotel. but its cool that they added Oneida to the TRANS AM show on the 18th. That should be a dope show!

Decent venue, but it's a pain to get to if you don't live off the J/M/L. Let's hope they move it to someplace more convenient. I will gladly pay more.

months ago this would've had 100s of serious, paragraph long comments.. maybe todd p is on the decline

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2010 7:17 PM

well, todd p sucks. books the same shitty bands all the time at the same shitty venues. dude needs to get some fucking variety with his shows. how many times do you really need to see fucking beach fossils or something?

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2010 7:31 PM

Well, he books bands that draw so that he can stay in business. Sorry he snubbed your band or something.

7:31 - he just booked two nights of Bonnie Prince Billy, I think that's pretty diverse. He's done a lot of metal in the past year too (Liturgy, ect.) And don't be calling his venues shitty.....Market Hotel is one of the best venues in the city and its a shame that its not being used right now because of the cops. Hopefully it will get up and running again, cause I can't imagine not being able to see shows there anymore. Who cares if some of the bands are shitty? Todd P shows are fun, cheap, all ages, DIY nights you can enjoy with friends and STILL bring in your own booze. If you don't think that's awesome, then you must be the most jaded hipster around.

As much as I hate 'DIY' being a 'fun time' for increasingly muscly NYU bros in aviators (got dragged to surreal estate last night, I SEEN IT), I wish market hotel success in the future...really tryina see that Wierd show this friday.

Posted by Anonymous | April 4, 2010 9:54 PM

I think the police got confused and thought this was one of the illegal ACTUAL hotels they've been raiding in Wburg recently

Posted by oops | April 4, 2010 9:57 PM

does anyone know where the weird show is being moved to? led er est has nothing on their site?

^ not market hotel.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 12:28 AM

also anyone that doesn't like beach fossils doesn't belong at market hotel in the first place.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 12:36 AM

"also anyone that doesn't like beach fossils doesn't belong at market hotel in the first place. "

so what you're saying is that Market Hotel is an exclusive club where everyone thinks alike and doesn't take well to outsiders? Got it.

the weirdest thing is they've raided market hotel before and issued summonses for underage drinking.. how the place operated unfettered for a year after that, only to be stopped now, is beyond me

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 1:14 AM

true cops have come to market hotel before, but i think it became an issue for them when they were targeted two nights in a row...

either way, i think they're going about this the right way in treating it more as an opportunity to fix up the place, legitimize it to some extent while preserving its integrity, and continue hosting awesome shows.

black flag - police story

they need to get a decent p.a.

i blame the fucking media

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 10:58 AM

this was never about beach fossils. obviously nobody likes beach fossils. the point is that that building - only believed to be a hotel by google maps check it out - is the current cornerstone of the brooklyn music scene. i hope they get those lights on soon

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 11:18 AM

yeah..like black flag.
only the complete opposite.

Bowery Presents NYPD Pay Off? Or Todd Ps press finally hurting not helping?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 3:15 PM

i hate bowery presents as much as the next guy, but to suggest the nypd needs a payoff to shut that place down, when you can hear it from a block away, is pretty stupid

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2010 4:00 PM

when SXSW does everything it can to shut down Todd P's small shows, you can better your bottom dollar other big time promoters have the cops on speed dial and the fire code memorized

TOTAL FOSSILS

Posted by Anonymous | April 7, 2010 12:00 AM

the NYPD and FDNY would actually be committing a serious crime by not shutting down Market Hotel. If someone got hurt there, you know who the fingers would be pointed at.
Believe it or not... there is actually a reason why there are building/fire codes, laws, etc.
Guess what- you also need a "license" to sell alcohol!
