Bushwick’s newest music venue is in the basement of a clam shack

Taya Kenny

With DIY venues closing left and right, it's nice to have some good news to report. For anyone looking for a new spot to see a gig or go to a party this summer, one of this most promising new venues is located in the basement of Cape House, the recently opened New England–style seafood restaurant replacing the controversy-riddled Amancay’s Diner on Knickerbocker Ave and Johnson Ave in Bushwick. After a period of slowly introducing music through "dirty piano" brunches and sporadic parties, the basement is finally ready to launch with a full lineup of shows from now through July. The shows are comprised mostly of local bands, with a few established names mixed in, such as Tsunami Bomb and Dinowalrus. But a word of warning: Maybe don't overdo the shellfish before you hit up the dance floor.
