This trashy rock bar is the home of punk rock karaoke (Mondays, 10pm) and it has gigs in the basement almost every night. It's free to go for a drink upstairs, where the beer is the cheapest in the area - around $3 per pint. Plus, if you're lucky the barman will also throw in a few New York Dolls stories for you.
59 Stanton Street, New York
Although the British summer can be pretty chilly, you should always take skirts and dresses to the festivals. After all, it's a given that things are going to get muddy, and legs are much easier to clean than a pair of rock-hard jeans! They'll also take up much less room in your bag - just make sure you take plenty of tights too ... you don't want to end up with corned beef legs!
