    Best venue in NY. Consistently book talented up and coming acts. Unpretentious, casual, not a bad seat in the house. Cash only bar, solid selection of booze and beer.

    Now that 285 next door is also booking indie bands, some say this venue has mellowed a bit. We say the more, the merrier. Definitely worth going out of your way for. Loud music/Cheap beers/friendly

    Glasslands hosts everyone from local stars to up-and-comers to that dude who serenaded you at the G stop yesterday, along with some bigger names; recent shows include the likes of Light Asylum & LE1F. Read more

    If it's a chill show, it's highly likely people on the balcony will remain sitting for the entire show. Arrive early and you might even snag the highly coveted couch

    A secret music box in Williamsburg. The small stage, chill crowd, and great bookings are just a few reasons why this is one of my top venues. Saw SBTRKT, shigeto, BBF, fujiya&miyagi here!

    The infamous Robyn-themed dance party hits Glasslands. This Party Is Killing You celebrates Sweden's most bad-ass pop star, Robyn, by promising a night of all-pop everything. Fri, 6/27, 11:30pm. $5. Read more

    "Another smelly music venue in the heart of PBR city. It's a cool place with good views of the stage from all around. A trip to the photo booth after midnight is mandatory." -New Cassettes

    One of my favorite places to go check new bands. Check their site before going, as some events require a ticket and get sold out (specially on Fridays)

    Apart from its like-kind neighbor (285 Kent), the best place in Brooklyn for an intimate show with great bands. Grab a cheap tallboy at the bar and \m/

    Very small, intimate venue with indie lineups. Loud and fun on the floor. Great view of the stage from the balcony.

    Even if you haven't heard of the band chances are they're going to be good. Head upstairs for a good view and take a peak at the wall of setlists in the back. An ECG fave. Read more

    The best spot to discover the next band of the moment has an amazing track record for booking hyped indie-rock acts and the DIY decor gives every show the air of a stumbled-upon loft party. Read more

    We miss the clouds on the ceiling :( Still a great place to see bands up close that you normally wouldn't. Cheap drinks, fun times.

    If you arrive late, head upstairs. The sound is fantastic and the rail has one of the best viewing spots in the city.

    If you're seeing shows here then you're probably catching the next big band right before they blow up. Popgun Booking does an amazing job with this space. A must for indie music lovers!

    A South Williamsburg staple since 2006, Glasslands is a converted warehouse where partiers enjoy live music and a photobooth.

    Glasslands continues to thrive despite looming condos sprouting up around the space. "Cosy" doesn't even begin to describe this venue, where the decor is glorious and ever-changing.

    Besides possibly being Brooklyn's best small venue, its also the loudest. They sell earplugs at the bar for $2. Cash only!

    One of our favorite NYC promoters, PopGun Booking, books this spot, bringing great acts to this great intimate venue. If a show has the PopGun name behind it, go check it out! Read more

    Awesome venue, but the bathroom is terrifying. Unisex, small, dirty and crowded. Make sure you're ok to tear yourself away from the music and have some awkward encounters before you venture in.

    There's nothing fashionable about being late to the party at this BK art space and music venue. Shows typically end by 1am, so start your night here, then head to Cameo for an all-out dance party.

    the makeshift space seems like it's gonna fall over at any second but so far no injuries... oh and seeing bands in this small space is tops.

    Such a great off-the-radar venue that it's not really off the radar anymore. Don't miss the Soul Clap Dance Off whenever they host. Insanely good times!

    After remodel, the toilets are still a travesty of modern sanitation, only less so. If you're a female, just pee in the gutter, you'll feel cleaner.

    “It's on a stretch of Kent Avenue that doesn’t see much traffic & is relatively unmarked, so look for a smokers in front of a tagged wall.” More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/glasslands-gallery.
