Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of December 30th, 2019

I’ve seen the Strokes any number of times, but I’ve seen them great only twice, once with the White Stripes at Radio City, Julian had broken his foot and sang the entire set on a stool and killed it. The other a late afternoon  greatest hits set that stunned at Governors Ball… the following year they headlined and sucked so go figure. So New Year’s Eve… iffy right? I split on the the opening bands, quite like Spain’s garage rocking all girl band Hinds, Mac DeMarco irritates, and do the Strokes have the attitude for NYE? Find out at Barclays Center.

Monday, Tuesday – Phish – Madison Square Garden – if you have never seen Phish bring in the New Year, it is a New York tradition.

Monday, Tuesday – Gov’t Mule – Beacon Theatre – Warren Haynes blues band has been performing NYE since, what, 2007? I’ve missed it but who knows next year. This year James “Blood” Ulmer is headlining.

Monday – Zedd – Avant Gardener – a little poppy for EDM but in a good way (“The Middle” anyone?)

Monday, Tuesday – Macy Gray: Live on Broadway – Iridium

Monday – Woody Allen And His New Orleans Jazz Band – Cafe Carlyle – Woody os left with only music to express himself.

Monday, Tuesday – St. Paul & The Broken Bones – Brooklyn Bowl

Tuesday – Knitting Factory – Cloud Nothings, Field Mouse, Patio – A very consistent rock band who moved past their lo fi intro what? Ten years ago.

Tuesday – Disco Biscuits – Playstation Theatre – Say goodbye to the year and one of New York’s best venues with the soulful jam band

Tuesday – Kaskade – Terminal 5

Tuesday – Sleigh Bells (DJ Set) – Brooklyn Bowl – 1159pm

Thursday – Big Daddy Kane – Sony Hall

Friday – The Skatalites

Saturday – The Felice Brothers – Brooklyn Bowl – Americana for all
