Output is a new dance club in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood that fortunately focuses more on the “Dance” than “Club”. The exterior is nothing to look at, it reminds me of many unused buildings in Detroit, and which is probably why I love it. Set in the old industrial neighborhood, new signs of life, social-gatherings and business are sprouting up every where. As Output proudly states:
Output is open to anyone, but is not for everyone. Output welcomes individuals who value the communal experience of music over cameras and bottle service.
Is very true. Impeccable attention was giving to the sound. The audio was bright, crisp, bass heavy and creamy and left just the right amount of space to hold a quick conversation. Lights? Yea, they got em. Luckily Output was asked to keep them toned down a bit, so when the club started flexing, it actually complemented the music. On Thursday, August 15th, 3 DJ’s from Detroit we’re flown out to headline the Input monthly at Output. Fit, Big Strick and Omar S. performed after the night was opened up by Brooklyn local Turtle Bugg. The night maneuvered like any promoter or DJ would gladly pay for. Music started about 10pm, Fit started playing around 11pm for a few dozen patrons, scattered throughout the two floor space. By 11:30pm, the dance floor was pretty much packed by a sea of house and techno lovers who were getting down and embracing the gritty, yet soulful music we bring to the party.
In actuality, Detroit artists play here frequently. Peeps hanging at Output this past weekend just got turned on to Stacey Pullen.
