“Stepping inside is a little like wandering out of the desert into the cave of wonders. The main space seems to be a living room, library, and curiosity shop, with records and books spilling and cascading down from shelves around displays of antique cameras and long dead virtual pets. A couple internet-equipped computers and a bar run along one wall…, while the rest of the space is given over to a comfortable assortment of benches, easy chairs, and crowded end-tables. Above the stage at the back, monolithic painted words intone “FLOTSAM JETSAM”…

We’re excited to introduce you to our new space, Goodbye Blue Monday in Bushwick! We’re in love with it and we know you will be too. Find us there in our usual Friday & Saturday night slots and revel in the beer, the “good red” wine, the “really good red” wine, sake-infused lemonade, snacks, art and books, the kickass bands following our readings, friends old and new, and your trusty Stain lineups designed to elasticize your relationship with words and generally blow your treasured minds. What is the color of ink? Blue! What is Stain’s new color? Blue! Come paint Brooklyn blue avec nous.

For more on Goodbye Blue Monday, read the article quoted above, visit the venue’s site, read rave reviews, or jump on the JMZ trains to Myrtle Ave or J to Kosciusko St & walk a few blocks to 1087 Broadway, corner of Dodworth St.

See & hear you there! ~Amy & Ana
