In recent years, the historic Irving Plaza has had more name changes than Puff Daddy. This 1,200-capacity venue has gone from Irving Plaza to the Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza to the Fillmore East and then back again to Irving Plaza. The venue's multiple incarnations are best represented by its competitively variable booking calendar: indie-poppers on their first major tour, oldies on their reunion tour, aging rockers on their comeback tour, and the usual screaming, tattooed delinquents gearing up for the Warped Tour.

As one of the city's better-sounding midsize rooms, IRVING PLAZA hosts plenty of rising buzz bands (not to mention yellowing has-beens). These are the kinds of people you want to get a good look at. Act fast, though, if you plan on watching from the club's V.I.P. area: If you're not one of the first 10 to grab a spot along the balcony's railing, you'll spend all night examining the back of some overmoussed record exec's head.

Many a great band play IRVING PLAZA, but I couldn't tell you about any of the shows, because I can't see a thing. Unless you're squished right up front with the obsessives and the kiddies, or you've got a precious V.I.P. balcony pass, you're screwed if you're under five feet two. While this goes for most venues, it's particularly true at Irving, which is so long and narrow you end up standing way far back, hoping the super-tall guy in front of you (the tallest person in the room always...

You'd think Bloomberg hasn't been to a venue since Fleetwood Mac started. The new anti-smoking bill has tied the hands of IRVING PLAZA, preventing ticket holders from leaving between acts to satisfy nic fits. Result? An even more pissed-off crowd inside fitting for their smokes, and an irate crowd outside, realizing that, for them, the show's over. More »
Hopefully the band playing upstairs isn't crappy, since you probably paid $30 to see them, but if you find yourself with some downtime while at IRVING PLAZA, say, during one of those awful "experimental" films they show in between sets, be sure to check out the lounge. Located behind and to the right of the entrance lobby, and directly in front of the bathrooms, this cozy space, which features a gold ceiling, plush couches, antique light fixtures, and lots of mirrors and red velvet, will...

Great venue, but what a shitty V.I.P. section--one third of the balcony, where you spend all evening standing on chairs to see the act or gazing at a muddy monitor. Still, the efficiently smiling service of Barbara Shaw at Irving Plaza makes the shows worth it. Typically in a Gov't Mule tank top, curly-headed Shaw is a tough-ass rock and roller, a Bonnie Bramlettas-barmaid. And as pleasant as she is, she don't take no shit from chitchatting comp whores more preoccupied with cell... More »
