Rockwood Music Hall is what I imagine the underground music scene to be like in New York.
I would have to say that Rockwood is the epitome of a New York music scene. It’s dark, small, cozy, intimate, trendy and very hip. Hip as in hipster without the fanny pants. It totally reminds me of the bar scene in the Digable Planets’ Rebirth Of Slick music video. You know.. the song that goes “We like the breeze flow straight out of our lids, Them they got moved by these hard-rock Brooklyn kids…But I’m cool like dat.” or is it “I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. I’m rubber, you’re glue; whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you”?
Anyways, there are tables in front of the stage, seating on the 2nd floor and a bar. The crowd is very diverse from hipsters to old professionals in suits. It’s a total trip cause it really reminds me of the Digable Planets’ Rebirth Of Slick music video. There usually isn’t a cover and live music from up and coming bands. The drinks are fairly price, but fairly price is all relative and relatives always owe me money then go missing. Lastly, I’m definitely a fan and loving the New York feel of Rockwood.[adinserter name=”Block 1″]
