    Live music. Bands before they get famous and charge $70 for tickets.

    Glasslands hosts everyone from local stars to up-and-comers to that dude who serenaded you at the G stop yesterday, along with some bigger names; recent shows include the likes of Light Asylum & LE1F. Read more

    The infamous Robyn-themed dance party hits Glasslands. This Party Is Killing You celebrates Sweden's most bad-ass pop star, Robyn, by promising a night of all-pop everything. Fri, 6/27, 11:30pm. $5. Read more

    Best venue in NY. Consistently book talented up and coming acts. Unpretentious, casual, not a bad seat in the house. Cash only bar, solid selection of booze and beer.

    Very small, intimate venue with indie lineups. Loud and fun on the floor. Great view of the stage from the balcony.

    If it's a chill show, it's highly likely people on the balcony will remain sitting for the entire show. Arrive early and you might even snag the highly coveted couch

    After remodel, the toilets are still a travesty of modern sanitation, only less so. If you're a female, just pee in the gutter, you'll feel cleaner.

    Awesome venue, but the bathroom is terrifying. Unisex, small, dirty and crowded. Make sure you're ok to tear yourself away from the music and have some awkward encounters before you venture in.

    Now that 285 next door is also booking indie bands, some say this venue has mellowed a bit. We say the more, the merrier. Definitely worth going out of your way for. Loud music/Cheap beers/friendly

    If you're seeing shows here then you're probably catching the next big band right before they blow up. Popgun Booking does an amazing job with this space. A must for indie music lovers!

    A secret music box in Williamsburg. The small stage, chill crowd, and great bookings are just a few reasons why this is one of my top venues. Saw SBTRKT, shigeto, BBF, fujiya&miyagi here!

    There's nothing fashionable about being late to the party at this BK art space and music venue. Shows typically end by 1am, so start your night here, then head to Cameo for an all-out dance party.

    They need to install some AC here. Everyone including the bands look like they are going to pass out. Also, watch out for the pigs, they like to circle this block and harass you for standing outside.
