There’s more to a music venue than what you see on stage, which is why the Rock it Out! Blog takes you behind the scenes of the best independent music venues from around the country in a new video series called RiO!Backstage.

On this installment, we take you behind the scenes New York’s famed Arlene’s Grocery. Located at 95 Stanton Street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the space was originally a grocery. However, in 1995, it was converted to a music venue and became an early venue of many celebrated New York acts, including The Strokes. It also was the scene of Jim Carrey’s memorable albeit odd karaoke performance of the Radiohead song, “Creep”.
