Williamsburg’s Sound Fix Lounge saw its last show on Saturday. The record store will stay open, but the adjoining bar lost its liquor license and will shut its doors until further notice.
The lounge has a solid reputation as a go-to place to see good comedy and live music. During its six-year life span, it has had a long and impressive list of musical guests from Beirut to Mountain Goats to Regina Spektor. Comedy shows featured comedians such as Max Silvestri, and has been a springboard for emerging and obscure talents as well as notable ones.
Although he does not have any takers yet, owner James Bradley said he is hopeful that he can lease the space to someone who will continue putting on comedy and music shows, continue in the footsteps of the lounge.
“We’re all very sad about the closing,” said Bradley. “We felt we provided a good service to the community, but what can you do?”
