The legendary Williamsburg music venue rocked out for the last time on New Year’s Eve

By Hank Shteamer

We probably don't need to remind you—but we will anyway, just for closure's sake—that 2014 was a rough year for Brooklyn concert-venue closings. Last January's 285 Kent shuttering kicked off a steady stream of show-spot sign-offs (we still miss you, Death by Audio), several of which were related to the Vice Media takeover of a Williamsburg waterfront complex. The last of these spots to close was Glasslands, which hosted its final show on New Year's Eve with a mystery-lineup blowout that was revealed to be Sky Ferreira, DIIV, Smith Westerns and Beverly. So by the time you read this, Williamsburg will be one venue poorer. And while Glasslands may have lacked the scruffy DIY charm of its former neighbors, we'll still remember it as a crucial local spot, a haven for everything from melodic indie rock to cutting-edge electronica, hip-hop and R&B, and a show space where you could always count on feeling both cool and welcome. Here, we salute Glasslands one last time with photos from the final night. The locations will change, but we're confident that the party won't stop in 2015.
