Japanther at Shea Stadium

As the rest of the Brooklyn DIY venues shrivel up and die, Shea Stadium continues to fill its room with consistency. This is partly due to the exceptional talent they book, the no frills approach to the venue itself and the pretentious free attitude of it’s constituency. Lying on the outer fringes of East Williamsburg, while still not quite far enough out to be in the sketchy Bushwick… Shea stadium is nestled between the warehouses and workshops where recording studios, practices spaces and bars have slowly started to emerge. The Japanther show on September 10th was no exception as Shea Stadium continues to be the only “Destination Venue” (one in which you don’t necessarily need to know the bands playing to be confident you will enjoy the show) in Brooklyn and possibly all of NYC.
