We had the pleasure of talking with CMJ’s top acts last week and we’ve put together a list of their favorite places to eat, drink and play a show when they’re playing in NYC. Stepping up to the plate are synth-pop duo Ballet School, DIY indie rockers Twin Peaks and Happyness, and West Coast beatstress TOKiMONSTA.
“Black Bear. Right next to Music Hall Of Williamsburg.”
“A little Izakaya spot in the Chelsea called Cherry Izakaya.“
“Daily Feed.. I’m pretty convinced I just had the greatest sandwich of my life. I couldn’t tell you what was on it, but it tasted like magic.”
“I had a lovely kale and chicken salad at the Crown Vic, and we also heard about a bar that give you free pizza when you buy beer. We like pizza, so that sounds really good to us.”
“Glasslands… We’re really honored to be playing at Glasslands in Brooklyn since it’s closing at the end of the year. What made Glasslands so great is not the actual building itself, but the community around it.”
“Baby’s All Right.. We love Baby’s All Right – they treat us right over there! They’re sick.”
“Glasslands is cool, we were really sad to hear that they’re closing.”
