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 head to Manhattan’s Lower East Side to take an in-depth look at a favorite NYC venue, Pianos. This Costa Rican themed establishment is a hotspot for live music and DJ sets, specifically during CMJ, where some of the biggest bands have dawned the stage before moving on to greatness. Come with us and take a behind the scenes look.
