L at Montrose Ave.
Called a “fast-developing musical fortress” by its creators, this 8,000-square-foot concert venue joins the Main Drag Music store, Sweatshop rehearsal studios, and Newtown radio station (not to mention the offices of girl-drummer magazine Tom Tom) in the former Hittleman Brewery space. The three founders have, between them, worked at the Knitting Factory, the Highline Ballroom, and Manumission in Ibiza, at the time the world’s largest club. So, basically, the place is going to bump.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
