Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Williamsburg isn't quite dead yet. Or that's the claim implicit in new-music venue National Sawdust, which opened in October 2015. The space can accommodate 170 people seated or 350 standing and includes two bars and a restaurant helmed by James Beard Award–winning chef Patrick Connolly. While the brick building’s exterior (and the name of the sawdust factory it once housed) remains, Brooklyn design studio Bureau V completely rebuilt its interior with an eye toward presenting both acoustic and electric music. With composer Paola Prestini as the creative and executive director—and a host of curators that span classical and indie-rock spheres—there’s little doubt the nonprofit space is in good hands.
