Gramercy Theatre (concert venue) review – no heat?
Scatter o' Light went to the rescheduled stellastarr* show last night (March 7, 2007). It was rescheduled because the new NYC music venue wasn't ready to open on the original date. Here's part of their review:
saw stellastarr* at the gramercy theatre last night. this place used to be a movie theatre until live nation tore it up and turned it into a music venue. last night was its first night open. and you could tell. (unfinished, wooden steps and wooden doors leading to the ladies room. um, and NO HEAT.) people were wearing their coats and hats the whole show. but cold is better than hot (sometimes).
gramercy's floor space is similar in size to bowery, but more open and there is unreserved theatre style seating right behind the floor. i think it holds about 600 total. there are 2 bars on the floor and one in the basement.
