Old Soul Revival at Bowery Electric's Map Room

The main bands play the basement of Bowery Electric but, on several nights each week, a small back room on the main floor becomes a stage called the Map Room. Now this is a small room! The stage is only slightly larger than a queen-size bed and the distance from the edge of the stage to the back of the room is about eight feet.

Old Soul Revival, pictured above, is the Wednesday night house band at the Map Room, playing early rock anthems originally recorded by the likes of the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Each Wednesday, the band also invites a half dozen singer songwriters and local rockers to showcase their music. Admission is free.
