On Friday, House of Vans BK hosted its final event after an incredible eight-year run. The venue will go down in history as being one of Brooklyn’s more important event spaces. Its stage has seen performances from the likes of Nas, Dinosaur Jr., Public Enemy, and more during its nearly decade tenure in New York. And the skatepark has hosted countless events and sessions including Slap’s infamous final season of One in a Million.
The closing show was a launch party for Interpol’s new album titled Marauder—which ironically released on the day of the event. The performance was obviously bitter-sweet. It marked the end of an era for a cornerstone of the Brooklyn music and skate communities, and the beginning of the next chapter in Interpol’s impressive discography. Have a look at the band performing “If You Really Love Nothing” from Marauder during the closing show above.
Thanks, House of Vans Brooklyn for all of the amazing memories. It was definitely a good time.
