Palisades is featured on the cover of The New Yorker’s “Entertainment Issue”


Small Brooklyn music venues everywhere can be proud today as one of their own finally made it big. Bushwick venue Palisades (and it’s infamous view-impeding support pole) is featured on the cover of the just-out “Entertainment Issue” of The New Yorker magazine The cover illustration, titled “Closing Set,” is by artist R. Kikuo Johnson, who told the mag:

Everyone in Brooklyn is a d.j., so I rely on my much cooler friends to take me out,” the artist R. Kikuo Johnson says. “I have been taken to many one-night-only warehouse parties—I love dancing—but this was my first time at the Palisades,” he continues, referencing the underground venue in Bushwick that was the model for his cover of this week’s issue.

The Entertainment Issue contains some cool stories on Erykah Badu, Paul McCartney, Catastrophe star Sharon Horgan and Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. There’s also a list of people under 20 who are influencing mainstream music, which includes Alessia Cara, Babymetal, Kodak Black, Novelist and Lapsley.
