Yet another DIY music space in South Williamsburg. This venue, however, isn’t located in an abandoned warehouse, nor is it in an old, run-down lot. Dead Herring, located in someone’s apartment, is incredibly intimate, meeting all the criteria for house-party excellence. Hosting local rock acts, the space boasts anything you’d want out in an apartment: roomy kitchen, lofted bedroom, plenty of space. But come show nights, you’ll find someone posted at the front door to collect a small cover, and a foldout table acting as a bar displaying PBR cans, vodka, whiskey, and liters of soda. Then, of course, there’s the band, set up at the window in front that reveals the view of the JMZ line going by on the Williamsburg Bridge. Things get hot and sweaty, and it’s probably wise to bring your ear plugs. In addition to the relaxed, anything-goes vibe, household conveniences like a bathroom and couch put this place above the rest.
