THE REAL REASON TBA GOT SHUT DOWN, AND THEIR STRUGGLE TO REOPEN
When the Williamsburg electronic music venue TBA got shut down, rumors swirled. Some swore it had to do with drug use. (No.) Others said they were a victim of Vice's buying spree. (Wrong block.)
Ahead of their fundraiser at Good Room tonight, we sat down for an interview with the TBA guys – Mehmet "Memo" Erkaya, Gio Gulez, Omer Bora, and John Wolf Konstant – to find out what really happened, and what TBA will look like when it finally opens back up.
The truth, while not as sexy as a drug raid, is required reading for anyone involved in the nightlife scene in NYC.
