Famous Brooklyn nightclub Output will close following their New Year's Eve celebration at the end of the month. The news comes as a shock to both employees and patrons, as up until today there were events listed for January 2019. 

In a statement posted to their Facebook page, Output's management has cited "rapidly shifting social trends, unfavorable market conditions and weakening financial outlooks" as contributing factors to the shutdown. Similar to when Webster Hall closed in 2017, the turn of events will certainly be felt as a loss by members of the NYC electronic music scene. 

Known for an impressive Funktion-One sound system as well as a ban on photo and video, the intimate venue with a 452-person capacity opened in January of 2013. A consistent slew of impressive artists graced the decks, including Benny Benassi, Ben Klock, Chris LiebingBonobo, Claude VonStroke, deadmau5, Eric PrydzJauzMija, Nicole Moudaber and Rezz
