Glasslands Reopening August 17

Ye olde SOTC has raved about the cavernous Williamsburg art-space that is Glasslands on several important occasions. But there've been plenty of other times your host has resisted the temptation to regale you with self-indulgent anecdotes of seeing U$AI$AMON$TER play a tech-problematic set on a relatively uneventful Thursday or heading there to check out a former coworker's band and discovering grown men running around shirtless, with tomahawks and handmade headdresses. Or neglecting to attend a private Glasslands performance from a super-secret guest who was. . . Matisyahu (?!). . . because it was Matisyahu.

No matter, it sucked to hear that Glasslands shut down for a minute—with a venue of such questionable legality, temporary closure almost always means permanent closure. So it's with great sliding-scale joy that we repost this e-mail from Glasslands's Brooke Baxter, who writes that the art space has gone and made itself legit:

Dear Sexy Friends,

We are happy to announce that Glasslands will be reopening! Our first event will be the Lolita Party on August 17th. We will also be having a big ol Grand opening gala on Sept 7th to celebrate our new official legit status.

Big thanks to all our friends who were [sic] routing for us and especially to Death By Audio! There were quite a few rumors of why Glasslands had to shut down. The truth is Rolyn and I were chosen as finalist on the hit tv show America's got talent. We had quite a show stopper/jazz hands routine but we lost, so we're back. No biggie.

lots of luv
Brooke Baxter of GlassLands
