Legendary music venue creator and trendmaker Rodd D may have been ousted from the Williamsburg Kent Avenue nexus, but he’s come back in a big way via, where else, Ridgewood.

His new venue, Trans Sados, located near Wyckoff Avenue and Weirfield Street off the Halsey L (where big things have been happening), has caused much elation among the underground music scene–but much contempt among Bushwickian transes. “I went there thinking this was going to be a venue for trans artists. It’s not. It’s just yo standard hipster ‘experimental’ bull shit. I’m over you, Rodd D,” expressed Tequila Mockingbird, a local activist in Bushwick’s trans community.

Even the always polite and gracious Juliana Huxtable has found fault with the misleadingness of the venue. “I think it’s just a bit whack that Rodd D would mislead the trans population in this way. Do not attach trans to your venue’s name if there is nothing trans about it.” When Rodd D was asked to comment, he sidestepped us and grumbled something about trans being a reference to cross-pollinating music genres. In any case, now that the word is out about Trans Sados being a no frills, gender-specific outpost, it has lost a lot of its audience.
