Celebrating its 85th anniversary next year, historic Apollo Theater plays a key role in developing emerging African-American and culturally diverse artists and launched the careers of icons such as Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown and Jimi Hendrix.
BROOKLYN STEEL (WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN)
Since bursting on NYC’s music scene last year with five nights of sold-out concerts by rock band LCD Soundsystem, Brooklyn Steel has grown into one of the East Coast’s most popular music halls, with one-nightonly performances and mini weekend residencies.

Located in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen, Terminal 5 flaunts a multi-level space holding 3000 people in five distinct rooms. The venue regularly hosts concerts by hip-hop stars and the world’s most famous electronic DJs.
