Not saying anything y’all didn’t already know here but thought I’d reiterate this yesterday since Vice Media bought the building that houses Death By Audio, and the space will be closed in a month and most likely become office space for Vice Media, from what I hear. Priests has played at least two catastrophic shows at DBA so we feel a personal bond with this venue, a few standardly ‘good’ shows, too. By ‘catastrophic’ I mean they were among the more, um, interesting Priests sets. But Edan always asked us back. Anyway, one can only hope this draws attention to the bloated monster that is corporatized art and media and Vice Media’s suckdom in particular. This is hardly a specifically New York issue, there is a Vice Media in your industry, community, town, etc.
