new Bushwick venue The Brooklyn Monarch coming soon (Sheer Terror playing)
Bushwick has a new music venue, The Brooklyn Monarch, coming very soon to 23 Meadow St, in between Bogart and Waterbury (that's right next to The Paper Box and across the street from where Shea Stadium used to be). We don't know much else about the venue yet, but we do know that it's already got one great show lined up: a Sheer Terror 35th anniversary gig on February 15 with The Templars, Nothing But Enemies, Crazy Eddie, and The Fight. (The venue is listed in some places as "The Factory," which was just a placeholder name.) Tickets are on sale now.
UPDATE: The venue name was initially The Monarch Theatre but is now The Brooklyn Monarch. Stay tuned for more updates.
