From the same DIY wizards who cast the Market Hotel into existence, 285 Kent on Williamsburg’s waterside has turned from an insider favorite to an industry imperative. There’s always something strange, unfamiliar, or cutting-edge to check out here--many in the music scene have heralded 285 Kent for itscreative programming. Hidden behind an unassuming door is the converted warehouse-like space, with a lofty ceiling that not only keeps the acoustics booming but also fosters a non-claustrophobic feel that’s uncharacteristic to the dozens of compact venues in the city. If you manage to elbow past the hip crowd--unrecognizably hip, beyond cool--to get to the bar, you won’t be paying too much for a drink. All sounds pretty fun, right? Be sure to buy your tickets early. 285 Kent shows sell-out fast and often. --Dale Eisinger
