    Exactly this. I make a point of going here whenever in the city. Get there when they open or in that "too late for lunch/too early for dinner" time for the shortest line.



    I am quite fond of Barcade in Brooklyn. Gotta love having a couple too many and then failing at Paperboy and Punch-Out.

    Xi'an (there's one in Chinatown and one in Flushing Meadows) is some of the best authentic Chinese food I've ever had. Also, Denino's in Staten Island is the best pizza I've eaten. If you can make it out to Staten Island and figure out how to get around, there is also a great Italian Ice place and a few really fun bars.

    I have only been here a couple months and have thus far just used The Bowery Presents. They put on the shows at Mercury Lounge, Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Bowery Ballroom, Terminal 5, the Wellmont Theatre and more.

    If I want more I go to Oh My Rockness, which has a really stupid name but covers far more shows. It focuses on "indie" shows but it is somewhat broad in practice.

    I have yet to find an aggregator for classical & opera, Broadway and talky theater but I am looking.

    I stayed at home all day and streamed Animal Planet and the New York Phil.

    Today I am sick and that means we are not using our Two Gallants tickets. They are playing the Mercury Lounge. It is sold out. Show at 9:30, TG at 10:30. Holla if you want them.

    EDIT… TICKETS ARE TAKEN

    Hey NYers, how's everyone doing? I'm guessing everyone is in a frothing mouth frenzy over Radiohead at Roseland, but who's hitting up some of the great shows happening this week?

    Girls has a free show at Other Music Wednesday, Black Moth Super Rainbow at LPR Thursday, and the Rapture Friday. I'm also thinking of waiting in line Friday to try and get into the Radiohead SNL show...though that's kind of insane.

    Hey, I am good. I am happy to have the option of trying for tickets to see Radiohead I am going to pass; they will not upstage ATP for me.

    This is indeed a fantastic week for shows... though I may only make it to maybe Evangelista on Friday and Evangelista or Fucked Up on Saturday. Oh, and Elbow on Sunday. That is enough for me, I say.

    If you wait to try to get into SNL let me know and I may be able to stop by with provisions/well wishes/etc; that is only two blocks from here.

And this will mark my first trip there as well, so these links are extremely helpful. Thanks guys!

    If anyone has anymore current info regarding music venues or bands playing in mid December this year, please let me know. Thanks!
    There are many great shows already - Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings (2 shows,) the National (4 shows,) My Morning Jacket with Band of Horses - and I am sure more will be announced in the next few weeks. I'd consider signing up for emails from Bowery Presents and or checking Oh My Rockness.

    Also what are you looking to see on Broadway?

    I will be in Paris and London during that time, so you'll have to blow a straw full of water in someone else's face.

    Also...

    Hey, NYC friends and well-wishers: My band, Chekhov's Wig, is playing its final show at the Knitting Factory on Monday night!



    We're playing a set of completely rearranged Duran Duran songs for the event, so if you're around and want to have a swell time and see me smash the living shit out of the venue's house kit, swing on by.

    We're on around 9:30 or so, I believe. At least that's the plan. Hope you'll be able to make it out - There's lots of good bars/restaurants right there, so if you want any recommendations, let me know.

    I hope you guys are available Dec 6. I get in on the 5th, but I don't get in until like 8:00pm and I'm going to be beat. I'm leaving PHX very early, stopping in PIT for a couple of hours to conduct a workshop, and then getting on a plane to LGA.

    It's a date. Remember, I'll be at LGA, so someplace that's easily accessible via PT is vury ideal.

    I post in here too often offering up tickets, but, yeah. Some friends dropped out and I have an extra pair of tickets to see Sebadoh with Mazes this Saturday, November 12 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. I am going to the show so we could meet there, or there is Manhattan. I am not looking for money (but I would not refuse a beer, haha.)

    It should be a great show; a friend just saw them in Georgia and said they sounded great and had very entertaining banter.

    I would have loved to see one of those shows from the National - I really liked the venue - but neglected to get good tickets.

    I think everything else I'm in for is The Weakerthans play Reconstruction Site on Friday, a NY Phil CONTACT! concert on the 17th and whatever weekend operas I can get drawn for.

    Jandek is playing two dates in Brooklyn at Vaudeville Park

    Accompanying Jandek March 23rd, will be Rachelle Lalonde, vocals, Ian M Colletti, classical guitar, harps, violin, vocals and Valerie Kuehne, cello and vocals.

    March 23rd's performance will be taped live for an upcoming Episode of ESP TV.

    There will also be a 2nd Performance of Jandek at Vaudeville Park, Monday March 26, with Rachelle Lalonde, vocals, Alan Lewandoski, guitar and Ian M Colletti on various instrumentation.
    Trying to decide which one I will go to; I am leaning towards Friday night but I would have to mess with some plans.

    I'm going to vacation here with the boyfriend for about a month starting on my birthday Aug. 9th and returning on Sep. 5th.

    I booked my flight a few hours ago (hurray).

    I visited a few years ago but only for a few days. I got to see Rockafella, Radiocity, Timesquare, Central Park, and the Museums around it. It was a great time!

    Since I'm going to spend a month in NYC, I will now thoroughly read through this thread! I'm also looking for suggestions. I know I want to see St. Patrick's Cathedral. I'm a pretty boring person so things like that I'll be able to think of on my lonesome.

    After day 20 I may have some trouble thinking of things to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (Mayhaps some "Man, I wish I was there so I could go see.." shows to attend.) Thanks in advance.


    EDIT: Damn missed Bon Iver by about a week.. /cry
