NYC Venue Market Hotel Goes Non-Profit

Market Hotel is one of the most influential, and best, venues in New York’s burgeoning DIY scene, hosting acts such as Japanther and Sleigh Bells amongst thousands of others. The clandestine and cavernous Bushwick show space has operated in a legal grey area since it’s induction, unlicensed but never seriously threatened by law enforcement. However, earlier this month Market Hotel was shut down mid show by the NYPD. Now the venue hopes to remain in business by making that business a non profit. More info here.
