The National Underground

159 E. Houston St., New York, NY, 10002
nr. Allen St.

Without a question worst live music venue to play in the city

By Bshecko on 2/17/2011

  • Overall Rating: 1
  • No, I would not go back!

Musicians: booked for 9:15 but went on at around 11. When each band sets up they have a rapper rhyming to an iPod AFTER YOU SET UP. We stood on stage with instruments in hand for 3 of his songs. We were only allowed 25 minutes to play. Staff didn't know a thing about payment even though they charge a cover. AVOID THIS VENUE
