What Are Some Killer Rock Clubs in America?

Bowery Ballroom 1 of 11

New York City, NY

The Bowery Ballroom on the lower East side is widely recognized as the best live music venue in New York City (at least in the sad time since the closing of the historic CBGB). There's nothing less than an exceptional view in the Bowery, and it affords surprising breathing room for a capacity of 550 people.

The biggest selling point for Bowery Ballroom is the unbelievable superiority of the booking. Acts who played or will play Bowery Ballroom in 2012 include the likes of Odd Future, Grimes, Japandroids, Jonathan Richman, Beach House, The Afghan Whigs, O.A.R., Ani Difranco, and countless others.
