A great-sounding alternative for bands (and fans) who’ve had their fill of the comparably sized Irving Plaza, Webster Hall is booked by Bowery Presents, the folks who run Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge. Expect to find high-caliber indie acts (Animal Collective, Battles, the Gossip), but be sure to show up early if you want a decent view.
