This is probably the best venue in the city for seeing indie bands, either those on their way up or the ones holding their own. Still, the Bowery also manages to bring in a diverse range of artists from home and abroad. Expect a clear view and bright sound from any spot. The spacious downstairs lounge is a great place to relax and socialize between (or during) sets.

I've been able to catch a few shows at the Bowery Ballroom and have yet to be unsatisfied. The acoustics are great and each show draws in its own eclectic mix. For the drinkers, have no fear as there are plenty of bars and friendly bartenders throughout the space. That being said, make sure to check out the the event details before buying tickets as many shows are strictly 21+. Musicheads seeking an intimate venue (with history), look no further than here.
Pictured below, the roomie and I attending Johnnyswim's show. They're totally worth checking out!
