London Souls at Red Door

Remembering Red Door...with London Souls last year, certainly blowing smoke and capturing the unparalleled inspiration that this venue held in its 35 year history. As most of you know, Red Door has been permanently closed, and while the building still stands, it will be soon demolished and turned into another NY real estate story, but the spirit will never die!

Requiem For a Rock Dream: NYC's Red Door Closes

article on NY's Daily Beast about red door's possible last days, it may be true, it may be not, but one thing's for sure, this place is not going without an encore, so stay tuned to the tune we're building up april and may..."it might get loud" :)

The Red Door was a rockers' paradise, and on its final night detritus used artfully on the floor included old equipment from the Stones.

Last night, electrifying vibrations with City of the Sun back at Red Door....amazing night!

Side Street: Giorgio Gomelsky’s storied studio, known as the Red Door, has suffered structural woes, but that has not dimmed his vision nor his energy for music, musicians and art.

City of the Sun: Winter Party

Tonight, we're almost sold out but while a few tickets / RSVPs are still available, please join us for a very special night, a winter party, and a most uplifting musical celebration at Red Door with City of the Sun performing their last NYC show this year, followed by Danny White spinning a most elegant brand of nostalgic house on vinyl, both guaranteed to elevate you and get you dancing. As someone dear put it to me, City of the Sun evoke the same euphoric feeling of being immersed in a rave, but instead of electronic it's organic, and the dynamics are the same. And with the combination of Danny White to follow, I'm quite excited about the flow of what's to come tonight.

City of the Sun performing live at Red Door private venue, followed by after-party featuring Indie Slash Resident DJ Danny White, spinning best of nostalgic house on vynil. This is a 21 + event. Hosted by Raul of Red Door Collective & City of the Sun

The Turn - Fredo Viola

Thanks to everyone who came to the Red Door for the Hyphen Hub launch on Wednesday. It was an incredible night, with a showcase of Fredo Viola's and Mark Bolotin's new joint collaboration - The Cult- using the Lumiphonic Creature Choir instrument.

We would like to apologize to Fredo Viola for not fully listing his involvement earlier. He created the music for the The Cult and worked, with Mark, to create the visuals. He is a terrific artist - you can check out more of his work here:

In the meantime, we wish Fredo and Mark the best for their development of the work with the Creatures. The Red Door is excited to see what happens next!

Theturn.tv is an interactive site framing the music and visual work of Fredo Viola.

Help us revive the legacy of the last underground Rock'n Roll music space in NYC that since 1978 has been a music haven for artists such as Jeff Buckley, The Rapture, D Generation among others.

With our newly created Red Door Collective, we intend to bring together a community of friends that enjoy music and culture, sharing unique experiences aside of the now gentrified New York.

Please contribute to our Kickstarter campaign where you could get access to unique events, guitar lessons and even n**e photography workshops among many other items.

Thank you for your support and looking forward to share magical moments with you at the Red Door!

Upon entering, those that don’t know of the existence of this little music building and its somewhat hidden but impressive 30-year underground history, usually ask themselves the same question in astonishment. What is this place?

Our Story

Founded in 1978 by Giorgio Gomelsky, (legendary music producer and first manager of The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds) as a laboratory for music and arts, the Red Door served as a musical hub and artist collective for more than 35 years before it closed permanently in 2015 and the building was demolished to become another NY real estate story. It hosted and gave a space for uncompromising performances and experimentation for artists like Jeff Buckley, Bad Brains, Alejandro Escovedo, Jesse Malin, The Rapture, The Walkman, The Subjects, Barra Libre, The Outernational, City of the Sun, and many others throughout the years. In 2012, Red Door Collective was formed to help revive the space and produce the Red Door Sessions, where artists were always encouraged to experiment and do something different. After the Red Door closed permanently, the Red Door Sessions have remained to produce pop up events at different private locations.
