Photos by Tracy Collins from Freddy's last last night

Well, I visited the last last night for Freddy's Bar & Backroom from about 8:30 to 10:30 pm.

Photographer Tracy Collins arrived later and captured the scene at the bar, the Backroom, and the corner of Dean Street and Sixth Avenue, slated to change significantly.

Here's his set; several examples are below.

The top chants of the night, I'm told:
  • "Fuck the Nets. We Want the Funk"
  • "We all Live at Sixth Avenue and Dean" (to the tune of "Yellow Submarine")
"We all Live at Sixth Avenue and Dean" (from redhookrockys)

(Other videos are here, here, here, and here. Here's a roundup of more coverage in blogs.)
