Sorry to hear that Williamsburg's underground music venue 285 Kent is closing. Not long before moving out to the West Coast, I saw Oneohtrix Point Never perform there -  a gritty, just barely repurposed warehouse with no heating and little lighting. Dead of winter it was  and even inside the building so freezing you could see your breath in the air. It's the first and so far only time I've watched a gig wearing an overcoat, hat, scarf and gloves. 

The venue's booker Ric Leichtung (of Altered Zones and Ad Hoc renown) has organised a series of farewell shows for the week ahead:
