Opened by Bowery Presents at the end of 2007, this three-floor, 3,000-capacity space is the largest midtown venue to set up shop in more than a decade. Its bookings include bands that not long ago were playing smaller Bowery confines (Wolf Parade, Hot Chip) plus bigger stars (M.I.A.) and scruffy veterans with loyal fan bases (Ween, Brian Jonestown Massacre).

It's really unfortunate this venue is one of the main places acts go before they work their way up to MSG, because it's not a fun place to be. I have fought my way through many a Terminal 5 show, seeing all kinds of bands, but after my last show, Jamie xx, I had finally had enough. No longer will I sit through teens grinding on top of me, beer being poured directly on my head every five minutes, bros yelling at each other over space and practically no sightline no matter where you stand, upstairs or down. I'm only 27, but I'm too old for this shit. Try to see your favorite band anywhere but here.
Terminal 5 is the worst space to see great music. Sightlines are awful, entrance chaotic, and for whatever reasons, the crowds are the rudest in the city. Stay away for your own safety.
