A friend and I are planning a NYC trip and will take in a show by one of our favorite artists at the Blue Note. The shows run Thursday through Sunday, with 2 sets nightly, 8:00 and 10:30 p.m. I'm hearing that Fridays and Saturdays are to be avoided, and our best bet is Thursday or Saturday, as the club will likely be less crowded. We're planning on eating nearby and are prepared to stand in line for a decent table. Having said that, would you recommend an 8:00 or 10:30 show, and why? Thanks for any advice you can offer.
