Best Rock Clubs in NYC

“Rock music is not meant to be perfect.” – Ozzy Osbourne

“Good fashion is like rock music: all anarchy and revolt.” – Ann Demeulemeester


Rock music has always been a genre of rebels and New York City has never been afraid to embrace new things. In this generation of EDM, rock music is apparently disappearing day by day. However, there are many of us who are not ready to back down. There are independent musicians, producers, online radios and most of all live music venues who will just not go down so easily.

There is a lot that goes behind putting together a live music performance. There is a whole team of promoters, sound engineers and lighting engineers involved. However, there is not much these awesome folks can do without good venues.
