The Knitting Factory is a great place to see small to medium sized bands play. Bigger bands play in the main space, but they have a smaller room and a tiny bar room with a stage downstairs where smaller acts and songwriters play. Their ticket prices are reasonable and the largest space is still intimate. My only complaint is that during energetic, crowded shows, it can be hard to see if you get pushed over too far to the right of the stage.

True Ashley Simpson did perform there, but they offer a cool place for local bands to perform. Also there is seating upstairs in the balcony. There are also different stages on different floors. Pretty good selection of beers: only $3 for Schlitz. Take the N, R, or 6 to Canal Street and walk over.

The Knitting Factory is famous among New York music goers for hosting some of the best experimental music festivals - and charging practically pennies to do it! With ticket prices hovering between $10 and $20 (sometimes less, almost never more), it's one of the most affordable cultural experiences in the city.

It has several stages, with a number of concerts going on at the same time. The main stage has two levels: a mid-sized floor and a small upper level with a couple rows of chairs. There's really not a lot of room to sit for those people who hate standing through three, four or five bands in one night, but if you get there early enough you can have a nice seat with a great view of the stage.

The sound system is quite amazing, I think the owners have very smartly invested into it. A lot of the music that plays here is electronica, which requires extra fiddling with the sound system, but the system itself and the club's technicians live up to the challenge.

PROS: Cheap, great sound, two levels of seating
CONS:

The knitting factory is one the best venues to see a concert in the city. They are known for having a plethera of up and coming bands on a regular basis. They have three levels with 3 separate venues. It is a rock club, so a little rough around the edges, but their BRAND NEW MARBLE BATHROOMS are very clean and welocoming to the ladies. (The old bathrooms were a little scary)

Just be sure to be quiet in the street outside the club...the neighbors want to shut down this historic club. They don't need any more fuel.

This is a nice small music Venue fairly far downtown that features quite a few excellent small acts and a number of big indie names that like to play in small clubs. Rilo Kiley usually stops there when they're in the city for example, and the White Stripes have played sets. The main floor is fairly small, so hot up and coming bands tend to sell out fairly quickly. Still, it's a nice atmosphere and ticket prices are rarely over 12 bucks. And the bar tenders and usually nice. I went to see Dog Fashion Disco on crutches and they offered me a chair and a drink.
