Best Avant-Garde Music Venue Located Inside an Industrial Park Silo (2008)


New hip experimental-music joint ISSUE PROJECT ROOM is so far downtown it makes Tonic look like it's on the Upper East Side. The massive new space, carved out of an industrial park silo and perched on the Gowanus Canal, is already attracting legends like Pauline Oliveros and John Zorn. Get down to improv accordion skronking, sound sculptures, bizarro films, and analog synthesizer freakouts—without ever stepping into Manhattan.
