  • The Mercury Lounge
    217 E. Houston St., 212-260-4700, Lower East Side, Manhattan
    It's a good bet that any given year's most blogged-about and buzz-worthy bands will have passed through The Mercury Lounge. A place to see overseas acts on their first jaunt to the States, bands from the five boroughs (OK, mostly from Brooklyn) looking to go major and national acts flying just below the radar, The Mercury Lounge is a small room that boasts an excellent sound system, lineups that are always exciting and a chance to catch the next big thing.
