Earlier this year, Brooklyn music lovers were shocked by the bankruptcy and subsequent closure of the popular club Verboten. The closing itself wasn’t so shocking – venues come and go all the time – but the exposé about the club’s demise featured sexual misconduct, harassment, and a severe failure to pay taxes to the New York State government.
Despite those horrible circumstances, Verboten itself had a state-of-the-art sound system and the perfect setup for late night raging. Fortunately, Eddie Dean, the former owner of Pacha NYC, stepped in and purchased the space in an auction. Now, the club is set to reopen in November 2016, rebranded as Schimanski.
Schimanski has just made their presence known through social media, where images of a pre-opening Halloween party and future November performances are coming to light. Check out the club’s sole post on Facebook, detailing their October 31st celebrations.
It seems like Radio Slave, Waff, Volvox, Delta Funktionen, Sascha Dive, Mat Joe, Tiger + Woods, Breakbot, Monoloc, Eli + Fur, and more will all be playing Schimanski in the fall of 2016! Though a pre-opening is set for October 31st, it’s unclear who will be playing for that Halloween show. It’s also unclear when the venue will be officially opening, as it only says November 2016 on their socials.
Regardless, it’s always exciting to have a new music space coming to the heart of Williamsburg! Check out more info about Schimanski on their website.
