Check out NYC indie bands with a local

Posted on October 30th, 2008 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Music

Amsterdam-based Like-a-Local has added an insider’s tour of New York’s indie music scene. It doesn’t come at a typical indie price–42 euros per person, plus a 15-euro reservation fee–but Manhattan isn’t cheap. Also, if the quality matches that of a design tour I took with Like-a-Local in Amsterdam this spring, it will be well worth the price.

The tour promises to bring groups of between two and four people to “a New York underground party, club or music show” in a neighbourhood like Williamsburg or the East Village. It’s all a bit vague, because it all depends who’s in town and what’s hot when the tour is booked. Makes sense; if a band plays every week at the same location, they’re probably not very indie.
