We know you hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring, ting tingling all over NYC this holiday season!
The Christmas joy and music that we never get tired of for some reason is alive and well and the cold weather isn’t holding back one bit! Let’s get the most out of the year and finish strong! Here is a list of concerts happening this month.
Concerts We Loved
John Legend (The Theatre at Madison Square Garden, Manhattan @ 7 PM)
Oh, who doesn’t love listening to the sounds of music that comes from this man?
He is pure talent wrapped up and put under the Christmas tree this season as he goes on his Christmas tour.
We know what we’ll be asking Santa for Christmas this year!
Adrian Jêan and HOAX (The Bandsintown Studio, Manhattan @ 7 PM)
A journey through the Velvet Underground Experience.
The exhibition took us into a deeper look of the 1960’s NYC band, The Velvet Underground.
The basement housed live performances, Adrian Jêan who will be releasing an EP winter 2019, and Queens’ own indie pop-rock band HOAX who will take you back to the streets of the 1960s.
Angela Johnson (The Apollo Music Café @ Manhattan @ 10 PM)
The festive season was a little extra merry and bright with Newark native Angela Johnson who brought a soulful set blending her high octane sound with classic holiday hits. Come out and dance, laugh, drink, and dance again because Angela will make sure everyone is having a great time.
Concerts to Rock Out 2018
Wes Walker (The Knitting Factory Brooklyn, NY @ 8 PM)
Philly native Wes Walker is all the rage in up and coming rappers. He knows how to entertain and to get the crowd live. Let loose and range as hard as you can in the Knitting Factory because this will not be a performance to miss!
Pentatonix (Beacon Theatre, Manhattan @ 7 PM)
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. EVERYONE knows Pentatonix and their numerous television performances make you feel like you’ve already seen them. It is not the same as seeing them live in all their acapella glory.
No instruments, no pre-made mixes, only their voices for music. And this holiday-themed show is nothing different!
Live Well (Barney Mcnabbs, Yonkers @ 8:30 PM)
Teaming up with YCAP (Yonkers Community Action Plan), all donations will go towards their clothing drive! While offering your donation, you can enjoy the emo-punk band Live Well.
They are excited to share their nostalgic music and deep-rooted lyrics with new fans in the coming months as they work on releasing their first album soon!
The event is a $10 flat rate, or $5 with a donation of any article of clothing (hat, socks, gloves, jackets, etc.)
NGHTMRE (Brooklyn Steel, Brooklyn @ 8 PM)
Need a place to party? Come check out this event.
NGHTMRE has been traveling all over, and is headed to Brooklyn to make people dance their nights away!
Tyler, the face of NGHTMRE, brings out his set and makes electronic dance music beats for all to enjoy.
Michael Feinstein (Feinstein’s/54 Below, Manhattan @ 8 PM)
Every year, the one and only Michael Feinstein returns to his New York club to perform in the spirit of Christmas, and this year is no different.
Enjoy a lovely performance and great Christmas dinner while listening to the sweet sounds of the 5-time Grammy nominated entertainer dubbed “The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook.”
The Englishtown Project (Highline Ballroom, Manhattan @ 8 PM)
Let’s keep the ball rolling and fun times coming with The Englishtown Project. A cover band playing songs in tribute to one of the most successful concerts ever headlined by The Grateful Dead in Englishtown, New Jersey year 1977.
In this concert, you will hear all of the greatest hits from this night and take a trip to the past with other songs from bands like New Riders and The Marshall Tucker Band.
Friends at the Falls, Ula Ruth, SCR, and Mayve (Mercury Lounge, Manhattan @ 7 PM)
The year is almost over but not until you come to this multi-artist concert event.
Each with their own unique sound, ranging from dark pop to alternative rock to synthwave, you will be filled with different layers of music and this is definitely an event you don’t want to wait to late to get your tickets!
David Guetta (Brooklyn Warehouse, Brooklyn @ 9 PM)
Happy New Years Eve! If you’re not thinking about heading to Times Square to watch the ball drop (with the millions of other people), finish 2018 with your loved ones, or those who enjoy the same taste in music as you as you watch David Guetta perform.
It comes to no surprise that he knows how to throw an insane party, so get your tickets while you still can!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE AND KEEP ROCKING ON TO TUNES INTO THE NEW YEAR!
