538 Johnson-Brooklyn-DIY Venue-NYC

The infamously low-key warehouse space on 538 Johnson Ave. is known as one of the primary homes of the New York punk and noise rock scene. Shows at 538 are curated online via Facebook events and word of mouth alone (along with the help of Showpaper of course) and has several rooms that are utilized for performances. Johnson was one of the locations that hosted the New York’s Alright festival and, needless to say, things tend to get rowdy here.
