The Bunker at Public Assembly (slide show)

The Bunker (possibly) says goodbye to its longtime home, Public Assembly

By Bruce Tantum

The Bunker and its home, Williamsburg’s Public Assembly, have been a great match since the beloved electronic-music affair moved into the space seven years ago. That’s at least partially due to the fact that the club is pretty bunkerlike itself, and that’s a quality that can make underground techno and house seem all the more raw and beautiful and weird and wonderful. But Public Assembly’s front room is currently being renovated, and it looks like it won’t be reopening as a music space; the back room. meanwhile is closing in a few weeks for renovations of its own—so it’s currently up in the air as to whether the Bunker will be returning to the club. Fear not, as the Bunker itself will carry on, wherever it ends up. But in the meantime, the party is tossing one (potentially) last blowout in the back room on Friday, July 5, with Shawn O'Sullivan performing live, and regulars Borne and Atomly on the decks, along with residents Bryan Kasenic (the Bunker’s prime mover) and Mike Servito. We figured that this would be a good time to run a series of Bunker shots taken over the years at Public Assembly by the shindig’s most-awesome cohost and official photographer, Seze Devres. Savor the memories—and in the meantime, keep checking the Bunker website to keep up to date.
