Williamsburg. The music capital of New York… if you know where to look. If you want to see music in Williamsburg, it’s not always the easiest to figure out where to go. Especially if you only have a day or two to make it happen. So this is a catalog of places where you can see music in Williamsburg. Specifically, independent venues. You don’t (usually) have to buy a ticket in advance to see bands here. Tickets are usually $10-$15.
I’m also linking to the calendars of these venues, not their websites. The hardest part when you’re trying to see indie shows in Williamsburg is that every venue’s website is something someone put together in twenty minutes, then never updated again. I’m mapping out these venues into three categories that I made up: The Proper Williamsburg Precinct, The East Williamsburg Warehouse Corridor, and the Morgan Hipster Strip. Basically, this list starts near the Williamsburg Bridge, then goes into Bushwick. Also, they’re all places I’ve been that have tickets under $20.
