Concierge.com's insider take:
When this venerable music venue's former incarnation, Northsix, opened in 2001, it heralded an explosive new era of grassroots indie rock in Brooklyn, drawing in promising neighborhood talents such as TV on the Radio, Beirut, and the Hold Steady. When rents skyrocketed in Williamsburg six years later, the Northsix space was bought by the owners of the Bowery Ballroom and remodeled with state-of-the-art sound equipment, balcony seating, and improved acoustics. Recent acts like MGMT, Grizzly Bear, and the Dirty Projectors have since unleashed a rocking wallop of sound into the modest-size, black-walled venue, which continues in Northsix's footsteps by showcasing indie rock bands on the rise. If you arrive before the show, head downstairs to the subterranean horseshoe bar (one of four on the premises), where band members often grab a drink before going onstage.—Douglas Wright
