The DIY music scene in north Brooklyn continues to see its venues close. On Saturday, November 22, 2014, Death By Audio (49 S. 2nd St.) hosted its last show in a seven-year run as a DIY space in Williamsburg. Grooms, JEFF the Brotherhood, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Lightning Bolt performed for a packed house, and a few people threw issues of VICE magazine around the space as Lightning Bolt played. (VICE is moving in.) Photos by Rob Menzer for the Village Voice.
