Thread: The New York City Thread

    Default The New York City Thread

    It seems like every time I come on the board I'll learn that another boardie lives in New York, is visiting, or is moving out here.

    This is the thread for all the concerts/events/happenings that make New York City such an amazing place. Maybe we'll all find a few new concert buddies.

    So, anyone seeing Monotonix this weekend?

    Although I am not a resident I will be visiting towards the end of November for my birthday, the 19th-24th to be exact... I'd love some bar/food/cool things to do recommendations if some of you NY'ers don't mind.

    I will be in NYC from Oct. 16th to the 25th. Any good places to eat?

    Regarding concerts, I already checked and the only one that I'm going to is Midnight Juggernauts @ Bowery Ballroom on Oct. 21.

    Thankfully I am going during a pretty busy concert week when I'm there. I will be attending the opening Pixies show at Hammerstein (on my birthday) and two Dirty Projectors shows at the Music Hall in Williamsburg.

    There are too many great places you should go to...being a semi-broke college student I don't get to eat too often, but there are some good cheap places around St. Marks (close to where I live). Any specific food preferences and I might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Same for you too, ThomThom. I might be at those Dirty Projectors shows, not sure yet how it will fit into the concert budget.

    You are there during the busiest show week in New York (CMJ) and all you can muster is Midnight Juggernauts? Seriously?

    Insert fail pic here.

    That is exactly why I came to this thread. So I can get some recommendations. I don't know 90% of the bands playing CMJ.

    But if you're going to be a jackass about it, go fuck yourself.

    There is a bunch of awesome stuff that CMJ offers, some amazing panels and films and music performances. The only problem is the cost- 295 dollars for just a student pass. Ludicrous.

    There are tons of cheap and free shows on during CMJ. The passes get you in to everything, but most shows still sell tickets on the night.

    Gonshman:
    Please prepare for my 2010 move to NY by telling me your favorite:
    • Indian
    • Pizza
    • Italian
    • Thai
    • Clubs with great music and that you can dance at without constantly being sexually harassed but still have an attractive clientèle in case you misplace your moral compass that night.
    • Bars

    Indian - never really been a big fan of Indian food, haven't tried it here yet. Same goes for Thai

    Pizza - depends on what you're going for. 2 Bros is super cheap and pretty good (2.75 for two slices and a drink) and on the opposite end of the spectrum is Keste. Supposedly the best pizza in NY, and it is damn good, but expensive.

    Italian - haven't been to enough Italian to make an informed decision. Supposedly the place I'm going tonight is pretty good, I'll report back.

    Clubs - Webster Hall has some fairly well-known DJs for relatively cheap cover. Anywhere in the Meatpacking District is definitely a meat market if thats what you want.

    Hopefully some of the other New York residents who have lived here much longer than I have can also help you out.

    Hop on the 7 train into Queens and hit up Jackson Heights, one of the city's largest pockets of Indians. Jackson Diner (http://jacksondiner.com/) is my favorite spot, and it offers both buffet and menu options. Sashay down the street a bit and hit up the large Indian grocery for some amazing products with fantastic packaging.

    Will get back to the others in a bit.

    Last night I went and Saw Monotonix at Market Hotel. It's a cool little all-ages venue in Bushwick, but very well organized. I definitely want to see more shows there in the future now that I know my way around the area a little better.

    Also had ramen at at really good place called Ramen Setagaya. A good price for a large amount of food.

    Is anyone going to the No Age shows this coming week?

    My god, I bet that got unbearably hot. The only time I've been there it got ungodly hot and it wasn't for anything near as wild as Monotonix is supposed to be.

    Also, recommending places to eat in NY is incredibly difficult because it's so damn big and every place claims to be the "best _____ in New York".

    Also Brooklynvegan.com will let you know who's playing and does a comprehensive job.

    yeah, brooklynvegan is really the best site for shows and other random events. http://www.ohmyrockness.com/ is good too
