In 2015, Glasslands joined the graveyard of defunct Kent Avenue–adjacent music venues along with 285 Kent and Death by Audio. We've missed the digs (RIP), but this week lays host to a resurrection of-sorts, as the bygone establishment's organizers, PopGun Presents, are opening a new project titled Elsewhere.
The Bushwick space will feature a rooftop terrace, art gallery, loft bar and two stages: the 5,000 square-foot Elsewhere Hall and the smaller, 1,200 square-foot Zone One, which will showcase emerging artists. Just like Glasslands, you can expect a stellar calendar of innovative artists, as demonstrated by its densely packed opening week. We've rounded up our favorite shows, so you can plan out your first forays into the space.

The West Coast duo of Tyler Blake and Michael David, responsible for a series of sparkling synth-house releases, takes to the Elsewhere decks for a late-night dance party.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ set), Saturday, November 4 at 11pm
A regular at Popgun's Glasslands venue before it went defunct, this British producer returns to his previous stomping grounds, hopefully with theropod onesie in-hand.
