T5 is a great venue for a Jens Lekman / Taken By Trees (!) show....

Good God. If I want to fall asleep, I'll do that at home in my own be after eating a Billyburger and save the money on a ticket. And as a bonus, I won't have to deal with T5 or you Justice loving, Fankie Rose wanna fuck, fuckers.

T5? There's no way Jens is behind this. This is a guy who would generally prefer to play your apartment with a small group of friends to a festival any day. Whatever tour management he's hooked up with is seriously misguided. I'm guessing it'll get moved to Webster Hall after a month.

this has nothing to do with YENS.LEKNAM

Please - everybody just stop going to Terminal 5. Then bands will stop playing there. Then it will go away.

Been to probably a dozen venues since moving to NYC and I like T5 best -- why the hate?

Should be at MHOW.

He sold out three nights at MHoW last year. So maybe two nights at Webster? I rather liked when they used that Green Building in Brooklyn for two shows. I think Jens is better of with multiple nights at smaller, more unusual venues.

That Green Building show was magical. Perhaps one of my top 10 favorite shows ever.
