Brooklyn’s Magnetic Field closing forever
After five-plus years of rocking Atlantic Avenue and entertaining thousands of customers and welcoming hundreds of great bands, Magnetic Field in Brooklyn will be closing its doors on March 31st. Co-owners Lee Greenfeld and William Crane would like to personally thank all of Magnetic Field’s staff and patrons for their loyalty over the past few years, as well as all the numerous bands who have brought some truly tremendous and memorable performances to our stage, such as The A-Bones, Black Hollies, Black Lips, the Brought Low, Cynics, Dansettes, Detachment Kit, Mitch Easter, The Figgs, The Fleshtones, Gabby Glaser, Insomniacs, Lenny Kaye, Lilys, Klimpter, Lyres, Glen Mercer, Mugs, Nashville Ramblers, Nouvellas, The Plimsouls, Ponys, Reigning Sound, Real Kids, Shaw Nuff, Steve Wynn And The Miracle 3, Voxtrot, Woggles, and so many more!
We are currently working on a blow-out last week of shows to run March 24th through the 31st. Check our website (www.magneticbrooklyn.com) or our MySpace (www.myspace.com/magenticfield) for details about these shows when they are announced.
Lee Greenfeld will continue to book and promote shows — as well as manage bands — through his Dead Flowers Productions (www.DeadFlowers66.com). He can be reached going forward at DeadFlowers66@gmail.com
William Crane will work towards expanding his ever-growing gameshow empire via his Dick Swizzle alter-ego (www.DickSwizzle.com). He can be reached going forward at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for making it a great five years!
