On Thursday October 20th, Alberta Cross, GIVERS, and Portugal. The Man played arguably the biggest show of the 2011 edition of the CMJ Marathon at Terminal 5. Alberta Cross, a band with origins both in Europe and New York took the stage first and played a solid 30 minute set, winning over many new fans and surely pleasing the fan who yelled out to them that he came to the show just to …

By Stephanie Kibbe

You listen to a band’s music, you hear great things about their live performance, you even check out photos online of these past performances that everyone is raving about, but really, you never have a 100% idea of what you’re getting yourself into the first time you check out a band live. This was the case for me and my first encounter with Ghostland Observatory at Terminal 5. I had really enjoyed what I heard on their …

Florence May Very Well Be A Machine (of Perfection) by Britnee Foreman

Have you ever been so excited to go to a show you can’t eat all day? (oh, no? yeah, me neither. Who…who does that?) Okay allow me to nerd out a bit. I have been waiting to see this particular show for about a year. It is part of the reason I got this gig in the first place. On Monday I got to see Florence and the …

June 9, 2010 drainu182 0

Eleven years into their career, Louisville’s My Morning Jacket have released five highly acclaimed, classic albums, the live concert album and DVD Okonokos, and have been revered for their legendary live performances. With such an expansive catalogue, it’s been impossible in recent years for the band to perform every last MMJ favorite for one venue… that is, until this October. In an unprecedented move, New York City’s Terminal 5 will be presenting a historic five night run of shows where …

AIR Terminal 5 NYC 3/19 Review/Photos

(Review/Photos by Stephanie Kibbe of Some Kind Of Awesome)

Just before they hit the stage, I heard a few people around me say that they had been waiting for 10 years to see AIR live. As an “AIR virgin” myself, I wasn’t really sure how an hour plus of such ethereal sounds were going to have an effect on the crowd, but everyone was absolutely into it. AIR sent all in attendance of their sold out show at Terminal …

Alice In Chains 3/9 Terminal 5 NYC Review/Photos

March 16, 2010 drainu182 0

Playing a second consecutive sold out show at Terminal 5 in New York City, Alice In Chains ran through a nineteen song set, five of which were off of the band’s new album Black Gives Way To Blue. (Unfortunately, two songs written on the set list “Black Gives Way To Blue” and “Junkhead” were left off most likely because of curfew rules.) The crowd ran the gamut from Chains fans from the height of their popularity, to young college …

Nine Inch Nails at Terminal 5 Night 1 Pics/Videos

August 26, 2009 drainu182 0

The Audio Perv had the chance to catch Nine Inch Nails at Terminal 5 last night for the 3rd NYC show of NIN’s Wave Goodbye Tour. The Horrors opened and they were respectable but kind of forgettable. It was hot, sweaty and packed. NIN came on at around 9:05 and played for about 140 minutes. Peter Murphy from Bauhaus (BLAH!) was introduced by Trent Reznor as the guy who first took NIN on board into NYC many years ago. Murphy …

The Dead Weather played Terminal 5 (Videos/Pics)

July 17, 2009 drainu182 0

The Dead Weather played the first of two sold out shows last night at Terminal 5. It was a hot sweaty mess as there were a lot of douchebags talking throughout the whole set about the Yankees, getting super drunk and how they saw TDW eating dinner at El Centro earlier in the night. Otherwise, it was a great show (though I wish they had played a little longer!). Alison Mosshart was all over the place, chain-smoking and rocking out. …
