Movie Info

From 2005 to 2014 Death By Audio served as a venue for underground music, art and a non-traditional living environment. Founders: Oliver Ackermann, Edan Wilber and Matt Conboy, endure the challenges of hosting hundreds of people a night with looming threats of building department or police raids. Under ironic circumstances, we follow them through the last days as they navigate a billion dollar company moving into their building and the associated threats and intimidation to keep residents in fear of reprisals.

For all the talk from the founders about creativity and newness, nobody seems to notice that the artists occupying the space were for the most part coloring in the lines of thoroughly codified forms.

The footage relies more on idealistic testimonies than a cinematic experience showcasing DBA's vitality; why not let those blistering, immersive concert performances play longer than a chorus?

What makes Goodnight Brooklyn more interesting than most stories of its ilk, however, is the lethal irony at its core.

Matt Conboy's documentary captures both the unstoppable change and strange conflagration of the final weeks where construction work happens each day with a farewell gig each night.

A must-see doc for fans of New York noise bands, but maybe a little too precious for anyone who never made it out to the Williamsburg venue Death By Audio.
