Just like all venues in New York City right now (and most places for that matter), Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn is temporarily closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to keep busy during these uncertain times, the Greenpoint rock/metal spot has announced plans to start streaming a nightly interview series being called ‘The Age of Quarantine,’ which kicks off tonight (3/23) with hosts Dave Castillo (Primitive Weapons) and Chris Enriquez (Spotlights) interviewing Brian Cook (Russian Circles).
The interviews will air on Saint Vitus’ Instagram account weekdays at 8PM.
Here’s the full announcement:
We’ve got a new nightly interview series coming straight to yr phones! Starting this week, Dave Castillo & Chris Enriquez interview artists every night at 8PM! Credit where credit is due: this is Chris’ brainchild and we’re really happy to be involved. First up! Monday at 8PM on Instagram Live, Brian Cook of Russian Circles.
And if you enjoy the interview, or if you’re just feeling generally supportive, please consider sending a tip to our venmo tip jar (username saint-vitus-bar). All the proceeds from our Venmo tip jar go to our staff. We really appreciate your support!
