Huddled on the border between Bushwick and Ridgewood, the Silent Barn—a.k.a. Raven's Den, a.k.a. Club Krib—is a DIY music venue that brings to mind the ramshackle headquarters of an autodidactic art-punk collective. In fact, it sort of is: The place doubles as a home for the organizers, whose shared bedrooms flank its front hall. Deteriorating walls bear the marks of the tenants' creative proclivities, ranging from standard Sharpie tags to elaborate faux-textbook illustrations. Much like its fellow DIY Brooklyn venues like Death by Audio and 979 Broadway Backyard, the atmosphere is that of an organized house party; cover charges rarely exceed those at those all-ages hard-core matinee shows, but the music on tap is a bit more eclectic than one's standard drunk-punk lineup. More than a few blog-honored acts have graced the “stage,” located in the large living room/corner kitchen at the dusty center of the house. Despite the inherent awkwardness of attending a show in someone's house, the Barn is very welcoming.
