Is there a better way to warm up this season than dancing away your winter blues? Sure, it's not exactly winter yet, but you might as well start now.

Seriously, do you think you're going to want to trek out to a concert in February, when you can't feel your face? Nah.

Whether you're looking for one last bangin' party before the new year, or to indulge in some Christmas tunes, you have to catch one of these amazing December shows.

Michael Buble's Christmas album will always be there, but seeing some of these live performances can only happen once.

Don't risk the FOMO!


1. Ingrid Michaelson's 10th Annual Holiday Hop (December 14th) 


Don't miss Ingrid Michaelson's New York stop on her Hell No tour. She'll be playing songs from her new album "It Doesn't Have to Make Sense."

The pre-show at The Bowery Ballroom begins at 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. and there is a post-show happy hour in the Lower Level Lounge. Buy your tickets here.


2. The Oh Hellos Christmas Extravaganza (December 15th)

If you don't listen to The Oh Hellos, you're missing the f*ck out. The Oh Hellos are the musical equivalent of wrapping yourself in a soft blanket on a cold, cloudy day. The Oh Hellos are the best.

The folksy duo also launched what's planned to be an annual "Christmas Extravaganza" tour this December, which will probably feature tunes from their "The Oh Hellos Family Christmas Album."  

Don't miss their Brooklyn show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Get your ticket here.


3. Back to the '80s w/ Jessie's Girl (December 17th)

Can we all agree to leave nostalgia in 2016? This is probably wishful thinking, especially with the rockin' 8-piece band, Jessie's Girl, serving up killer '80s hits at Le Poisson Rouge.

This 21+ show starts at 11 p.m. and tickets are $20 instead of $25 if you buy them before the day of.


4. Holiday Brunch with Nicole Henry (December 24th)

Look no further for the perfect date idea. Enjoy an intimate show at the impossibly cool Blue Note Jazz Club with the acclaimed Jazz singer, Nicole Henry. 

Her albums have been featured on Billboard's jazz chart, she's received the "Soul Train award" for Best Traditional Jazz Performance, and has been hailed as "this generation's First Lady of Jazz."

Blue Note's brunch menu includes your favorite classics like Eggs Benedict, homestyle pancakes, and corned beef hash, or you could try their Sole Florentine, or shrimp & avocado sandwich.

Purchase your tickets here.


5. Trans-Siberian Orchestra (December 26th)


We don't know where you've been if you've never sat around (probably stoned, we mean, what?) binging Trans-Siberian Orchestra videos on YouTube. Doesn't sound like your thing? Um, multimedia rock shows with pyrotechnic and laser displays are everyone's thing.

Their shows are seriously an unbeatable experience and their new show, "The Ghosts of Christmas Eve" about a runaway girl who takes refuge in an abandoned theater on Christmas Eve, definitely delivers. Catch them right after Christmas at the Prudential Center, snag tix here.


6. 80's Prom Night ft. RUBIX KUBE (December 29th)

In case your nostalgia craving hasn't been sated, party with RUBIX CUBE, who are hailed as the most original '80s tribute band of all time. It's no surprise that their list of celebrity attendees keeps growing, to include Kelly Ripa, members of N 'Sync themselves, and Miley Cyrus.

Their male and female leads, all decked out in vintage threads, have the ability to transform between icons like Madonna, Michael Jackson, Cher, Prince, Devo, Bon Jovi, and Guns N' Roses at the blink of an eye.

Grab your tickets for their show at The Capitol Theatre here.
