From NY Song Lines:
Was the 44th Street Hotel, where trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke lived in 1931. It was briefly the Townhouse Theatre, an 88-seat venue where on March 2, 1974, the band Television played their first gig; earlier, in January, The Modern Lovers headlined in New York City for the first time here. Now it's St. Andrew's Pub, Scottish- (and Scotch-) themed bar.
From Rock and Roll Explorer Guide to New York City:
"Among the groups who played this Broadway-area theater during its bried mid-'70s run as a live music venue were Suicide, Television, and the Fast."
