NYC took a nosedive when Chris and Jami, Alberto and Sonia, Wowsville, April and Joe all left. Arturo, Erick, Ben and Keegan are here now, so that's good.
I wish there was as many bands (that I'd like to see, at least) here as Chicago or Atlanta, but I know it's hard to get a footing in NYC because it's so expensive, but once you're here for a little while it's not too hard.
There's also a lot of shows in the middle of the week here for some reason.
Renevated Luna Lounge is great, if a bit vacuous (impossible for any of these type bands to fill, the Times New Viking show had a good turnout and it was still relatively empty.)
There's no one, great, dependable venue. Not since Union Pool turned over.
