Terminal 5 Opening Up | Not at JFK
Bowery Presents are planting their flags in venues across the land: Music Hall of Williamsburg, Union Pool, Nokia, seabed of the North Pole and now Terminal 5 [starring Tom Hanks]. The 3,000 capacity venue will be opening up in trendy midtown-West at 56th Street and 11th Avenue to brings us larger and larger acts -acts that were once rinky-dink when about this blog started.
The National, who play for free this Friday at South Street Seaport, start things off October 11. It also appears the Webster Hall Justice show is now at Terminal 5. Since nearly all of Webster's gigs are $20, what'll be the average price for a T5 experience? I'll at least check it out with Justice, and if the mood is right, perchance the Decemberists.
Full line up, some tickets on sale this Friday:
11: The National
23-24: The Shins with Vetiver
1-2: The Decemberists
23: State Radio with The Beautiful Girls 30
1: Ween [BV better blog this or there will be angriness among commentors]
