Bowery enthusiasts go on and on about this concert hall's intimate stage, stellar acoustics, and Beaux Arts charm, but what they're really after are the bragging rights that come with catching the most buzzed-about bands of the moment. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wilco, and Interpol all played the Bowery before moving on to mega-venues. Catch current hot young things like Fleet Foxes, Laura Marling, and No Age before they burst into the national spotlight. Tickets are available online at Big-buzz acts sell out quickly, but you can often score a ticket on Craigslist or in front of the bar the day of the show for relatively little markup.
