That’s the word that came to mind when we stepped in here last night to see the Whitesnake concert in this beautifully renovated theater.
The Kings Theatre is easy to get to from Manhattan by taking the Q subway to the Beverly Road station and walking a few minutes over. It was that simple.
I just could not fathom that this theater was closed for decades. They did a wonderful job bringing it back to its ornate glory. The thick dark woods, chandeliers, red velvet curtains, period furniture, images along the walls, the ceilings in the lobby and main theater, the regal architectural stylings, the amazing faces and carvings along the walls around the stage, and the old school marquee out front listing the night’s event were all breathtaking. There truly is so much to see here, especially if you are one who enjoys the grandiosity of old-school architecture, and a piece of Brooklyn that harkens to a bygone era of NYC entertainment.

Rock Out, or Shut the Hell Up and GTFO!!! \m/
People, its Rock and Roll! For all those whining and complaining about Terminal 5 please just admit to yourself that you should really just be sitting at home and watching reruns of NCIS or Dancing With The Stars in the comfort of your air-conditioned home and cozy couch. Then be in bed by midnight. Yawn.
I have seen many negative reviews and pessimistic complaints about this NYC music venue. I laugh at you all. Where to start?
I was here a few nights ago for the Slash w/Myles Kennedy show. It was effing amazing! Slash was in a zone all night and once again proved he is a Guitar God. Myles’ voice is great, and he is a super frontman and perfect complement to play off of Slash’s fret work. The whole band was tight and played with crunching precision. They had the packed house rocking out and screaming for more over the two hours they performed. Hits from Guns and Roses, Slash solo, Velvet Revolver, etc, and even some Jimi Hendrix thrown in. Blown away at how good this show was. Wow – just Wow! Continue reading Rocking out with Slash at Terminal 5 in NYC!
For those metalheads out there we believe there is nothing more metal than spilling blood for a good cause! \m/
I have written on this blog in the past about the importance of giving blood, and referenced my own experience donating blood after Hurricane Sandy. Jimmy Duff, the owner of Duff’s, knows how vital this is to help save lives and he supports this cause wholeheartedly. It’s a wonderful thing that he has done for the community going on five years now, and we thank him for that. Hopefully, this year’s drive will be a success with good participation. Also, you get to hang out at a cool bar listening to great metal tunes. It’s a win-win all around! I will be there rolling up my sleeve for sure!
The details – On Thursday, February 6th, Duff’s in Brooklyn NYC we’ll be hosting their 5th annual blood drive in conjunction with The New York Blood Center. The blood drive starts at 6:30PM so please try to get there early (the drive runs until 11 PM), and bring identification with photo or signature. All donors will be served complimentary refreshments and will receive a free Duff’s blood drive t-shirt (shirt image is above) that is custom designed for this year’s event. Also, it’s in blood red! How metal is that? Continue reading Spill some blood at Duff’s in Brooklyn NYC for a very metal good cause!
