New York, New York
April 24, 2005
Cover charges are a bargain for those who are in-the-know regarding bands with buzz. The layout is basic and a little claustrophobic, as the only avenue from the front door to the performance space is sandwiched between the bar and restrooms. If you catch a peek behind the curtain next to the performance space door, you have decent chance of watching the act in the midst of changing.
The intimacy can be a bit much, but this might be your only chance to be within arm's reach of future rock stars. Get there early and you might be able to snag a seat against the wall. There's no angle to the floor, so if you get stuck behind someone taller, then you can forget any chance of seeing the band.
