Verboten previously held shows at Sullivan Room, Highline Ballroom, and The Paper Box, but there were always rumors that they wanted to have their own venue to host events as late as they liked. According to the email sent to followers, “the venue is a 10,000 square foot former metal shop in Williamsburg, featuring two rooms, industrial design, a sprung wood dance floor, and a massive Martin Audio sound system.”
Not just a music venue, Verboten will have a place for art as well. The line-up this weekend is a magnificent start. Friday will feature the Crosstown Rebels‘ Rebel Rave party with Damian Lazarus, Francesca Lombardo, Fur Coat, Ida Engberg, and residents Pattern Drama. Saturday marks the beginning of a monthly burlesque show with a stacked line-up of performers.
You know where we’ll be on Friday night!
