Hunters @ final Dead Herring show, 1/28/2013 (more by Ebru Yildiz)
As you may know, Williamsburg DIY venue Dead Herring hosted its final show on S. 5th street a couple weeks ago. But this herring isn't really dead, it's just moving. And apparently changing names, though they don't say what the new name is going to be. But they say a lot of other stuff on their Kickstarter page where they're looking for help in converting the raw space into a theatre/art gallery/venue. Here's more:
We're just not done making awesome things happen in Williamsburg. And we got SUPER lucky: we found a new space! And while no place could ever replace Dead Herring in our hearts, we have to say, this new building is even better than Dead Herring's old space! Huzzah!The "Dead Herring Lives" Kickstarter is currently at $3,982 of its proposed $8000 goal with 25 days to go. You can watch their campaign video below.
We're all abuzz with the possibilities offered by this new space. Towards the end of our time at Dead Herring, we were just starting to make more theatre and host more variety shows in addition to DH's bread and butter, awesome rock shows. Our new building is perfectly suited to this emphasis on creating original performances and stretching the boundaries of a DIY space for theatre, art, comedy, dance, and music.
So: while the crew behind this new venture is the same group of hooligans who brought you Dead Herring, this is a whole new adventure for us.

Hunters, The Immaculates, MMotMM @ Dead Herring, 1/26/2012
The South 5th location of Williamsburg DIY space Dead Herring went out in sweaty style on Saturday night (1/26) with sets from Hunters, The Immaculates, Moonmen on the Moon, Man and Necking. It was more of a party than a show, populated by much of the neighborhood's music community and onlookers hanging from nearly every possible spot in the apartment-cum-venue and it was as packed as I've ever seen it. While sad, the wake was very much celebratory.
UPDATE: The Village Voice reports that Dead Herring will reopen in a new location at N. 1st and Wythe. Good news!
More pics from Saturday's show are below.
Hunters @ 92YTribeca, 8/16/2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
As mentioned, Williamsburg DIY space Dead Herring will be shutting it's doors for shows this weekend with a final-night blowout on Saturday (1/26) with Necking, The Immaculates and Moonmen on the Moon, Man -- the later of which will feature "all line-up" of the group who are defunct for all intents and purposes. Just added to the bill, though, are Hunters which makes the evening a little crazier. (And it will probably be crazy, given the circumstances.) $5 at the door and more info is here.
There is a show tonight (1/26) too, the "Dead Herring is Dead Variety Show" featuring Dave Hill and Shaina Feinberg, Corn Mo, Rachel Coleman and more. This show is also five bucks, the variety starts at 8:30 and more info is here.
The flyer for Saturday night's sendoff is below...
Broolyn DIY house show space Dead Herring will be no more soon. They announced:
Hey everybody, we're very sad to announce that January is gonna be our last month at Dead Herring. They're raising the rent on us and we can't afford to live here anymore so we're moving on. We're super bummed but also very grateful to everyone who's ever performed here and hung out with us and made the last 6 years here so awesome. Rest assured, we're going out big and we have a ton shows lined up for January. Dead Herring is dead! Viva Dead Herring!There are just two shows left. January 26th will be the final night (lineup TBA). Tonight (1/5) is the 2nd to last show. Head over and wish them goodbye! That's the flyer above.
