You may not see it on first pass, but directly below Upper East Side watering hole Bar East lives a small, friendly music bar. The Underscore fields live bands three nights a week, with sets by everyone from (anonymous) indie rockers. Typical evenings see five or six bands lined up (not a bad deal at a $10 cover). Aspiring idols can drop by Wednesdays for the open mike. Décor is minimal; the focus here is on sound quality, with a solid system that will let you forget you’re in a basement.
