News and Notes: Trash Bar to Move; Spike Hill Follow Up; New Walkman Coming


The music club contraction in Williamsburg continues.  Trash Bar, the club on Grand Street, has recently been rumored to be closing at the end of March.  Yesterday, the club confirmed that rumor, but also made clear that Trash Bar will be relocating:

The rumors are true. Trash Bar is temporarily closing its doors in March and we have definitive plans to re-open at a yet undisclosed Bushwick location.

Spike Hill Sign

And while we’re looking at Williamsburg, here’s a follow up on Spike Hill.  You may remember that Spike Hill closed last month because the owner of the building which housed it had put the building on the market for $19.5 million.  The sale of that building, as well as the one next to it (it currently houses a Dunkin Donuts and was previously a drug store) were just announced.  The price? $40 million for the two.

Sony Walkman 2015

And now for something completely different.  Sony has announced a new model of the Walkman, pictured above.  It’s called the ZX2, and it’s designed for audiophiles with money to spare.  The ZX2 will play DSD, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, Apple Lossless, and other additional unnamed formats.   It supports Bluetooth  wireless music streaming, has 128GB of storage plus a micro SD slot.  It’ll run someplace in the range of $1120 – 1200.  It’s expected to launch this spring.
