@fred: I dj'ed there back in the before time (never played there live), I don't remember there being a countdown clock for the bands back then (some of my friends' bands played there).

Now Death By Audio, was an amazing spot It was shed all of the trappings of Manhattan (and now Brooklyn) bourgeoisie, and was fun for anything (dj'ed there too). Unfortunately, it's no longer there.
