Silent Barn has had its ups and downs over the past year. Between membership only DIY shows and unexpected fires, the venue has really cultivated a storied history. And now, to add to it, the port in every artist’s storm is enraged over a certain real estate company’s decision to bill it as an essential part of living in “luxury apartments.”
The publicist for Silent Barn, Maryann Getowtraygid, a 23-year-old recently graduated from Parsons, commented, “We said everything we needed to say on our Twitter, but basically, all real estate companies can get fucked. No one should live anywhere. We ought to be in trailers or teepees. Speaking of, we have a trailer for rent right now if anyone’s interested.”
The thing is, no one renting a luxury apartment is going to be interested in the DIY scene anyway. It’s a bit too grimy for the 35 and up demographic, which would much prefer to Netflix and chill anyway, rather than see Cum Stain Twat or whatever perform.
