Bowery Ballroom

If a show is happening at NYC's famous Bowery Ballroom, it was booked by Bowery Presents talent buyer Johnny Beach (who started at the company booking Mercury Lounge). Johnny also keeps busy by co-booking Webster Hall, Terminal 5, Union Transfer in Philly, and other Bowery Presents-affiliated venues. The man books shows all day and is literally at one or more almost every single night. He told us what albums he listened to the most in 2012. Check out his list, and some related videos, below...
