This Art-Centric Bushwick Venue Has A Focus On Progressive Music
Tonight, you’re not just going anywhere for live music, but Elsewhere. This art-centric Bushwick venue was converted from the equally art-friendly Glasslands Gallery, celebrating art that doesn’t necessarily fit with the general status quo. With a primary focus on “progressive music programming,” Elsewhere is the perfect host for your next indie music date night. Tickets are $10 if purchased before the show date, $12 on the day of, and the show starts at 8 p.m. Check their calendar here for upcoming shows—and note, they're not just about live music either, they also host art, film and comedy events.
To continue the theme of converted spaces, head over to Faro for what might possibly be some of the best pasta Brooklyn has to offer. Offering up some delectable house-made pasta, Faro is a hip little joint essentially constructed out of little more than wood and white bricks. Converted from an old firehouse, it’s especially fitting that this restaurant is all about wood-fired meals, with highlights including lobster and black trumpet caramelle and pork fazzoletti. Come during a weekend to try their 8 p.m. tasting menu. It's fantastic.
