As you’ve probably heard, Brooklyn-based DIY recording venue/show space Shea Stadium has fallen on hard times, having recently been forced shut down a month ago after a series of violations issued by the city.
Shea Stadium founder Adam Reich and his team are working diligently to get the space back up and running — totally legally this time — to resume their eight year run of offering the scene a space where bands could put on, and record, and get paid for, their live performances. As such, they launched a Kickstarter campaign geared at raising the funds necessary to help Shea Stadium complete renovations, combat legal fees, and come into compliance with myriad codes and regulations. Featured amongst the Kickstarter options is a compilation curated by Exploding In Sound Records that consists of performances from two dozen different bands recorded live at Shea over the last eight years. Included are bands like Big Ups, LVL UP, Ovlov, Washer, Palehound, Krill and a bunch more. Get the full details at the Kickstarter page here and help get Shea back up and running.
