Andrew Bird at the Beacon
Tuda S. May 20, 2013
I saw Andrew Bird at the Beacon Theatre May 5 last year after the release of his latest album, Break it Yourself. The theatre is gorgeous; it flaunts elaborate architecture and greek style relief on the walls and ceilings. We had orchestra seats that were slightly left of center, but it seemed like every seat in the theatre had great views of the stage. I has happy to see that everybody stayed in their seats for the whole performance (except for the encore) because our view remained unobstructed. The stage lighting and set design for Andrew Bird’s show were beautiful. There were spinning paper sculptures suspended above the stage and a large phonograph that he incorporated into the performance at some point. The show began with an unexpected 20 minute musical intro wherein Andrew Bird played different instruments, looped each part, and continued to play over himself until he created a one-man orchestra. Then he proceeded to play a mix of songs off his new album and the oldies. The sound in the theatre was terrific– clear and at a perfect volume. I highly recommend any show at this venue, but Andrew Bird is not to be missed when he comes back to NYC!
Get thee to a show at the Beacon, stat

Nearly as amazing as seeing Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds here Friday was actually seeing the Beacon for the first time. Yes, the acoustics make for a great-sounding show, but the gold-clad venue added an ambiance and intimacy to the show that would surely not be found in another venue. No wonder so many greats come through - and stay for multi-night runs at this historic and legendary stage.
New York's Beacon Theater will amaze you before the show even begins.

I'm not one to dwell much on "atmosphere." I'm usually more interested in the show. However, the Beacon Theater in New York slaps your face with its architecture well before the lights dim to coax the audience to silence. Imagine steps of white marble, flanked by statues of various goddesses. Now throw in some stone and mock-gold elephants. A fountain or two. You get the idea. Once the lights dim, and the show starts, you'll appreciate the excellent seating. Try to find a bad view. Your search will prove fruitless. Despite three flights of seating, the theater stays small enough to ensure a satisfying view of the stage no matter where you park yourself. It's well worth your time and money to catch a show here, and the theater offers a wide enough variety of shows that you will find something that appeals to you. Mark this stop as a must for your next vacation in New York.
Intimate and Fun

The Beacon Theatre is a great venue that doesn't have a bad seat in the house because it is so small. Because of the history of the building you will get a huge range of acts - Allman Bros. to Old Crow Medicine Show to some others that I have never heard of but seem to pack the streets with the dedicated fans. Even with the small lobby the bathrooms were never a problem for me, and the beer lines are well managed. Another bonus is the close proximity to the 1,2,3 subway 2 blocks away.
