2. Silent Barn

The original location of the Silent Barn in Ridgewood, Queens (which also served as the first gallery for indie-arcade game collective Babycastles) was infamously robbed a few years back. But a more than generous kickstarter response helped the venerable venue move to their space on 603 Bushwick Ave. The space is now only a hop skip and a jump from Pallisades and continues to host heavy-hitters from the underground scene. You can also get a haircut, buy records, and check out the murals in their new interior courtyard.
