Best Dungeon-Like Place to See Bands New York 2005 - LIT LOUNGE
With the closing of so many of New York's smaller, gritty music venues in the past few years, it's hard to find a place to see bands where there's great sound and it's intimate enough that you can actually get some of the rockers' sweat on you. The basement at LIT LOUNGE solves this conundrum. The stone walls make the place feel like a catacomb, but it's still cozy, with benches and tables to lounge at as your favorite relatively unknown band plays. Plus, their booking is fantastic.
