The Ocropolis is Dead. Long Live the Ocropolis!

Today the Village Voice reports that Monster Island the long standing Brooklyn artist space which houses both Secret Project Robot and Oneida’s recording studio The Ocropolis will close at the end of September. Before then there are still plenty of events scheduled including the annual Monster Island Block Party, taking place this Saturday. Since 2004, Monster Island has been a home to the reemergent Brooklyn scene housing tons of music events including early Todd P shows. Dozens of bands have recorded at the Ocropolis, and tons of artists have either shown their work in the gallery space or used the studio space to launch their creations. The good news is both the Ocropolis and Secret Project Robot will be moving to a yet to be disclosed new space in Bushwick.

Fat Bobby and Barry "Snaps" London in the Monster Island basement

Kid Millions sent us this link to the NYC Taper site yesterday – Oneida played a show on Oct. 29th in the Monster Island basement.  NYC taper was there to record it!  The sound quality on this is amazing – just stream “I Will Haunt You” and you will find yourself downloading the whole show.  I don’t think there is another Oneida recording like this!  You can also email the dude if you want the FLAC files.  Super kind!
