  • The Apollo Theater
    The Apollo, a theater that once banned black performers and patrons and later became one of the foremost landmarks of black culture, has long been famous for its Wednesday Amateur Night—which has pulled the likes of Michael Jackson, James Brown and Lauryn Hill to its stage. The 2014 Amateur Night season finishes on November 26, as a "Super Top Dog" is named; in Febuary 2015 the process begins anew. During that hiatus, the calendar is filled with events like the Daptone Super Soul Revue (December 4–6), the Apollo Music Café series (New Zealand R&B star Aaradhna appears January 9), various holiday specials (including an edition of Amateur Night) and, of course, regular historic tours of the building.
