Music Hall of Williamsburg
The high-end, medium-capacity venue scene in NYC is crowded. Fortunately, most do a relatively good job at putting on shows. While Webster Hall and Bowery Ballroom hold down the Manhattan scene, the Music Hall of Williamsburg brings these shows to the epicenter of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, regularly selling out events. The vibe here is often more inviting than its Bowery Presents counterpart across the East River, Bowery Ballroom, and after seeing bands like The National and Deerhunter, you can head in just about any direction from the venue to find stellar after-show nightlife.
