Best Club to Get Your Starter Band a Gig (2008)

Acme Underground

Getting a gig can be very daunting, especially if you're new to town and haven't quite found your way into the inner sanctum of cool cliques. Or maybe you just want your big NYC rock debut to be kept a little low-key so as to not embarrass yourself too badly. This is not to suggest that the bookers at Acme Underground lack discernment so much as they seem to generously delegate a steady flow of special bands for rock consumers with special needs—they even supply a house drum kit and guitar cabinets. For booking, ask for Tom or Suzanne.
