THE CHOP SHOP NODA
Self-described as being "on the wrong side of the tracks" in NoDa, one of our fair burg's woefully few bohemian enclaves, the Chop Shop opened its doors a couple of months ago and promises to add another dimension with live music as well as DJs. The huge warehouse has been furbished and banged into place with repurposed auto parts and old machinery, among other reused objects. Owner Jay Tilyard is looking beyond music, though, and will book all sorts of eclectic events and artists, including, um, the kitchen sink, at this all-purpose venue.
