MGMT Drummer to Have Free Party Tonight at 'Delinquency'

WILLIAMSBURG — Iconic rock band MGMT's drummer Will Berman is celebrating his birthday tonight — and everyone is invited.

The soon-to-open venue Delinquency, a colorful newly renovated space on Grand Street by the Bushwick border, is hosting a free party and concert with three bands and an open bar starting at 8 p.m., DNAinfo.com has learned.

"It's Will's birthday, three bands are playing, we're all good friends," said Stephen Saverance, one of the partners planning to open the venue officially in September, and a friend of Berman. "It's just a good old time."

Tonight's concert — which also celebrates Saverance's 28th birthday — comes after years of scheming to open a venue in the Bushwick area, Saverance said, who joined forces with his two best friends Julian Vigoroux and Landon Webb after they worked in different bars in the Lower East Side and hosted DIY events in Brooklyn.

"Our space is a warehouse that had been gutted and was empty for 40 years," Saverance said of the space on 1031 Grand St., which he claimed was the first air conditioning factory in the United States.

The bands playing tonight include Kings of Belmont and Zach Mexico's Latest Side Project, according to the venue's site.

"We're inviting people to come into our space, to come to our party."
