Brooklyn, a Place to Impress Strangers

Notes on the evolution of the BK DIY scene, now available in Manhattan

What it is: A house so far east in Brooklyn that it's actually in Queens. Shows are held upstairs in the main room and also in the basement, down a skinny one-person-at-a-time staircase, which is terrifying if your mind tends toward disaster scenarios.

Booking shows since: March 2007, in its current incarnation. "Before that, there were some occasional shows since early 2006," says one resident.

Who actually lives there: Four full-time residents, and eight to 10 members of the extended Barn crew that use the space regularly

Memorable Shows: One resident lists performances by No Age, Fire on Fire, and Lucky Dragons as his favorites, as well as the Deer Tick/Castanets double bill.

Upcoming: Abe Vigoda and Vivian Girls on May 2; a "super-secret awesome show" on May 30.
