O’Death & Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt @ Brooklyn Bowl (the new NYC bowling alley in Williamsburg) – pics

O'Death

On Friday night (7/10), Brooklyn Bowl became one of the newest concert venues in Williamsburg with Brooklyn band O’Death as the first of many bands to come grace its stage. Bowling and concerts don’t necessarily go hand in hand (editor’s note: yes they do! I think.), but the sound of the rowdy shirtless band and its fans easily overpowered the sound of the bowling balls crashing into the pins adjacent to the stage. With 16 lanes, multiple bars, wait service, and a booming sound system, this venue definitely gives other venues (in the 600-capacity range) ample competition.

As part of its green commitment, Brooklyn Bowl has implemented a number of eco-conscious designs to its building such as: a no bottle or can policy (you get beer in a glass!), recycled truck tires for the stage floor and the use of LED lighting for the stage which uses 90% less energy than the typical stage lighting. It’s also one of the few buildings in Brooklyn that run on 100% wind-powered electricity.

Will it be a success? We hope so. Currently, there’s not many upcoming shows announced aside from the 2-night Lebowski Fest. There’s also a Clutch listening party scheduled to take place there on Tuesday (7/14) @ 6pm (Clutch’s new album, ‘Strange Cousins From The West,’ is out this week on the band’s own Weathermaker Music). The schedule will probably fill out soon though – at least partly with bands that have played Wetlands (which Bowl owner Peter Shapiro previously owned). Right now the venue is still in some state of ‘soft launch’.
