Over the years, Brooklyn venue Death By Audio has perfected its recipe for an epic night. Think cheap drinks. Think a small enough space to actually see the band– so small, you might occasionally get sweated on by the bassist. Think a roster that's typically good enough to drag me out of my nearby apartment to see a midnight show on a Tuesday…even during the winter, which is really saying something.

It's a winning formula, and now a local label has come as close as you can to bottling it up for the masses.  Famous Class Records has just released a brand new flexibook that's filled with live tracks all recorded late-night at DBA from Jeff The Brotherhood, Future Islands, Eric Copeland, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, and A Place To Bury Strangers. Each limited-edition piece also comes stocked with artwork from Brian Chippendale, Dave Singley, and more.

Get more details and pre-order the flexibook over at Famous Class Records. Because if you can't make it to Williamsburg at 11:30 pm on a Tuesday, this is undoubtedly the next best thing. Grimey bathrooms, cheap beer, and potential hangover not included.
