Refused Cap Off New York Gigs With Secret Show

After closing out Terminal 5, the Swedish punks headed to Brooklyn


Monday night in Manhattan, reunited Swedish punk band Refused played their second of two well-received and quickly sold-out shows at Terminal 5 – a venue with a capacity of 3,000.

Roughly an hour after the curtain fell at Terminal 5, the band was in Brooklyn, setting up their gear for a secret show at Acheron – a venue with a capacity of just 150. It was an unexpected and fitting salute to the fans from a group who never warmed up to keeping anyone out.

Here's how it went down.
