The Flat

Since opening in March, the Flat has been a haven for edgy music and affordable drinks. "It's amazing how many people we know live within blocks away," said Max Brennan, the owner. A decade ago, he founded Lit, a bar, gallery and performance space on Second Avenue in Manhattan. "It's sort of how Lit used to be before all the 'shirts' invaded the East Village," he said." - [NY Times]
The Flat, owned by Lit's Max Brennan and The Deathset's Johnny Sierra, opened this spring at 308 Hooper St, just off the Hewes St stop on the J/M line. While it's mainly a bar they do hold the occasional show, like Azar Swan's live debut which happens Saturday night (11/10) and is the official afterparty to the Tamaryn show at Knitting Factory earlier that night (Tamaryn's tour meanwhile hits Mercury Lounge tonight).

On Wednesday (11/14) The Flat is hosting a show presented by Self-Titled, Mishka and Greedhead Music, with HEEMS, LE1F, Big Baby Gandhi, and Meyhem Lauren. It's early (7 - 9 PM) and is FREE. Flyer is below.

The day before that (Tuesday, 11/13) they've got the release party for Fat Tony's "BKNY" music video with DJ sets from the man himself, plus Tom Cruz, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, DJ Sicksentz, Kitty Pryde, Lakutis, Cities Aviv, and Dapwell from Das Racist. Also free, 9 PM start.

4:28 - If you're talking about the black person on the B&W promo pic, that's not a chick...Leif is a gay dude.
