Are you ready to talk about some good shows?

I said are you ready to talk about some good shows!

Nobody ever answers me.

That’s OK. I know that just means you’re listening extra hard.

Ready or not. Let’s talk about good shows.

Thursday - December 18th, 2014 A.D.

Real Estate (please pay no attention to that four year old band profile) + Shorts (that one's good, though - echo... echo) play a free show (with RSVP - and it’s already closed - and Rockness is a buzzkill) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Will this show be easy? Will this show be breezy? What would you say if I told you it was going to be both? Yes. This one will be an easy breezy chill time.

Ice Choir play Cameo Gallery. This is a good band. Spandau Ballet and Tears For Fears to open... if only in... myyyyy... dreamsssss. Here's a wonderful holiday song for your pleasure.

Delicate Steve play Glasslands. Why am I recommending this show? It’s a “Butterfly” thing. You wouldn’t understand (unless you totally do, man…. unless you totally do).

*please note this song is already three years old and I'm going to keep posting it until it's 30

Mitski (click that) recently released one of the best albums of the year. See her and her band play songs from it in the real live flesh tonight at Knitting Factory. Bellows is playing this show too. Click their name to learn why I like them too.

Other notable shows = Soulside at Saint Vitus + Life Size Maps at Baby’s All Right + Nashville Pussy at Gramercy Theatre + John Hodgman at Grand Masonic Lodge + Walter Martin of The Walkmen at Joe’s Pub + Krill at Shea Stadium + Har Mar Superstar at The Bowery Electric

Friday - December 19th, 2014 A.D.

Mates of State play two shows at Mercury Lounge tonight. I’m glad to see these two are still doing it all these years later. You can’t stop the male/female indiepop. You can only hope to sing along loudly for all to hear. Here's an oldie but a goodie.

L.A.’s Goldroom brings the beats, blips, and booms to Webster Hall. If this guy keeps it up I’m gonna have to award him a Dance Jam Master certificate of excellence that I print out from home using my off-brand PC.

Speaking of the beats, eccentro-dance man Matthew Dear does his thing at Verboten. He deserves a Dance Jam Master certificate of excellence too. And he’ll get one too. As soon as I have enough capital to replace my toner.

Hip-hopsters Ratking represent Harlem and XL Recordings. They lead a good free show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar where you can also purchase locally grown trinkets and tacos.

Other notable shows = Rivergazer at Shea Stadium + Run-DMC at Barclays Center + RL Grime at Output + Heaven’s Gate at Silent Barn + Thievery Corporation at Webster Hall

SEE ALL OF OUR FRIDAY PICKS

Saturday - December 20th, 2014 A.D.

Fat White Family have developed a reputation as one of those “crazy” live bands. So things might get a little “crazy” at Baby’s All Right tonight. PC Worship and Sunflower Bean (the #1 Hardest Working NYC Band in 2014) also play. Let’s get “crazy.”

Lemuria + Slothrust + Spraynard + The Young Leaves play at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. This one should pop. This one should punk. You didn’t have to pay to go to this one either.

Widowspeak play Glasslands with Quilt and What Moon Things and this lends further support to my previous claim that just about every show at Glasslands from here on out is going to be good.

Other notable shows = Nick Lowe at Music Hall of Williamsburg + Com Truise at Glasslands (late) + Jonathan Toubin at Brooklyn Bowl + Matisyahu at Best Buy Theater + Chris Gethard at Union Hall

SEE ALL OF OUR SATURDAY PICKS

Sunday - December 21st, 2014 A.D.

Dave Harrington (Darkside + a bunch of other bands) invited his friends to make the holidays spectacular at Glasslands. His friends include members of Bear in Heaven + Real Estate + The Antlers and not to brag but I’ve totally heard of all three of those bands, NBD.

The Front Bottoms are hosting a Champagne Jam party at Webster Hall with Kevin Devine + Craig Finn of The Hold Steady + The So So Glos + some special guests. This one looks fun. Just don’t have too much fun at a Champagne Jam. You’ll get a headache that’s resistant to any and all forms of OTC medication.

Oh, yeah. Tyler, The Creator plays Terminal 5. And this guy is still………. around.

Other notable shows = Netflix + Amazon Prime + Hulu Plus + Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust

It's cool. You don't have to answer. I'll just tell you.

2014_top50_625

We’ve been all about pulling the stats lately. We already told you about the Top 10 Hardest Working Bands in NYC which you read and cherished. You want more dynamic stats like that? You got it! Our calculator can crunch all day, baby.

Below is a list of the Top 50 Shows in NYC in 2014. What does that mean? Not a good question, a GREAT one. Here’s how this sausage was made. We sorted allllll the thousands (yes, thousands) of shows we listed this year (by hand!) by how many times you guys saved them using your “My Rockness” accounts.

(“My Rockness” is totally free and if you don’t have an account yet you should totally get one and then you can get email alerts when bands you like announce new shows. You can save shows to your calendar -- Google, ical, and some others I think. You can even contribute to next year’s Top 50 NYC Shows of 2015 list.)

The results of this unique analytical experiment are here…. and they’re spectacular. Have fun taking a trip down memory lane. How many of these shows did you go to?

(You can tell us on Facebook and/or Twitter.)

#1: St. Vincent, San Fermin @ Celebrate Brooklyn! at Prospect Park Bandshell (FREE) on 8/9/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 258

St. Vincent earns the top slot as Most Popular Show of 2014 (activate applause machine and ready the free t-shirt cannon blasters for the people in the cheap seats) with this lovely outdoor free show this past August. Annie Clark and crew had an amazing year. Her fourth album, elegantly titled “St. Vincent,” was released in February to great acclaim and was recently nominated for something called a Grammie (sp?). And how about that SNL appearance she did way back in May? Did you see that one, kids? Is Dana Carvey still on that show? We just love that church lady of his.

#2: Blood Orange, Moses Sumney, Sean Nicholas Savage @ Central Park SummerStage (FREE) on 8/16/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 196

Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes) seemed to be everywhere in 2014 - including Central Park - where he headlined this free show in August. And as the invisible silver medal that comes with this faux runner-up award suggests, many of you came out to see this one. Although we’re not sure it was quite as jammed as Simon & Garfunkel’s famous free show there in 1982. Did you know over 500K people went to that one? Whoa, thanks for this irrelevant information, Wikipedia!


(photo by Bryan Bruchman, courtesy of 4Knots Festival)

#3: 4Knots Festival @ South Street Seaport w/ Dinosaur Jr, Mac DeMarco, Those Darlins, Nude Beach, Speedy Ortiz and more (FREE) on 7/12/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 174

Village Voice’s always fun 4Knots Fest comes in as the third most popular show of 2014. Do you remember this one? It was free and a bunch of good bands played. They always do. As an added bonus, it was also super close to Pizzeria Uno. And every true New Yorker knows you can’t get a more authentic slice than Pizzeria Uno, except maybe Sbarro or lately 7-11. This show deserved to medal and it did.

EDITOR'S UPDATE: WE HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED THAT PIZZERIA UNO CLOSED LAST YEAR FIRST CBGB AND NOW THIS ALL IS LOST


(photo courtesy of Northside Festival)

#4: CHVRCHES, The Range, Hunters @ McCarren Park (Northside Fest) (FREE) on 6/15/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 157

Another free show? We’re slowly starting to see a pattern emerge here but Google Analytics hasn’t told us what to make if it yet so we’re not rushing to judgement. CHVRCHES’s synth-pop is perfectly pleasant in every way so it’s not a big surprise their McCarren show for Northside Fest ranked as high as it did in 2014. Who doesn’t love seeing perfectly pleasant synth-pop under open skies on a warm summer’s day? What are you, a monster? BTW, the band’s hit song “The Mother We Share” is pretty much the greatest pop song about half-siblings ever written. And that we don’t back down from.


(photo by Aylin Gucalp, courtesy of Central Park SummerStage)

#5: Andrew Bird and the Hands of Glory, Luke Temple @ Central Park SummerStage (FREE) on 7/8/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 149

FREE. FREE. FREE. All of these are FREE. Andrew Bird gets the fifth slot for his performance at Central Park SummerStage. Guess his big time violin skills really got to the heart of the matter.


(photo by David Andrako, courtesy of Celebrate Brooklyn!)

#6: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Devendra Banhart, Nicole Atkins @ Celebrate Brooklyn! at Prospect Park Bandshell on 7/26/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 135

Just when you think you’ve figured out the pattern it gets blown to bits. This show was not free. That’s right, this summer you had to pay good money to see Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds headline Prospect Park. You wanna see this Australian post-punk-goth-pop legend? It’s gonna cost ya, pal. Was this show worth it? It was a benefit to support Celebrate Brooklyn's free shows that you seemed to enjoy very much this year. Let us know in the comments section Oh My Rockness has thankfully never had!


(photo by David Andrako, courtesy of Celebrate Brooklyn!)

#7: Janelle Monae @ Celebtrate Brooklyn! at Prospect Park Bandshell (FREE) on 6/4/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 127

The pattern reverts back to itself. Janelle Monae played a free show in June to open the Celebrate Brooklyn season and we’ll always have the Instagrams to remind us. BTW, if a show takes place at a park do you say it happened “at” Prospect Park or “in” Prospect Park. A.) Janelle Monae played a free show in Prospect Park. B.) Janelle Monae played a free show at Prospect Park. YOU make the call!


(photo by Aylin Gucalp, courtesy of Central Park SummerStage)

#8: Bonobo, Cibo Matto @ Central Park SummerStage (FREE) on 7/13/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 122

Yes, Bonobo at (in?) Central Park was another free show and hang on while we do some quick calculator crunches here. OK, the stats staring back at us suggest that 7 out of the top 8 most popular shows of 2014 were free (and they were ALL outside). How unusual. How bizarre. What does it all mean? Where do we go from here? What have we learned and why? Show your work.


#9: Caribou, Jessy Lanza @ Webster Hall on 11/14/14

Number of My Rockness Saves: 119

Are you ready to talk about some good shows?

I said are you ready to talk about some good shows!

Nobody ever answers me.

That’s OK. I know that just means you’re listening extra hard.

Ready or not. Let’s talk about good shows.

Monday - December 15th, 2014 A.D.

Modern Baseball + Knuckle Puck + Crying + Somos + Foxing play Music Hall of Williamsburg. If you like The Pop Punk this is going to be the show for you. If you don’t like The Pop Punk, it’s cool we all must find our own way - even if that way is deciding to live in sadness.

Eugene Mirman + Janeane Garofalo + their funny friends get together and hang out at Union Hall tonight. If I were to tell you how many times we have listed Janeane Garofalo shows on the site this year, well, let’s just say I now know how to correctly spell Garofalo on the very first try.

Speaking of funny (which I’m pretty sure I was but I can’t really remember), Wyatt Cenac is funny and he does his regular weekly gig at Littlefield tonight. Isn’t it high time you trekked to Park Slope and checked it out? What the hell are you waiting for? You want him to get huge and you'll have to pay up to ten times the amount of this $5 ticket price right here? That could happen. Don't let it happen to YOU. This is one funny dude.

Other notable shows = Netflix + Amazon Prime + Hulu Plus + Ashes To Ashes and Dust to Dust

SEE ALL OF OUR MONDAY PICKS

Tuesday - December 16th, 2014 A.D.

How to Dress Well (thanks for the advice but I already know - wear comfortable, loose, and breathable clothing now and always) + Porcelain Raft play one of the last remaining shows at Glasslands before it shatters and turns to dust in the wind.

I told you wayyyyy back on September 17, 2013 that Nicholas Nicholas was worth checking out and I was such a prescient young man back then. See this good band at Palisades with three other bands that are also probably good because let’s give everybody the benefit of the doubt around here.

Gross Relations play Knitting Factory. Some say they play lo-fi fuzz pop but I say they sound more like Color Me Badd meets Ace of Base covering Roxette meets Snow meets Girardo meets Jodeci meets Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (RIP) meets Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard. #nailedit

Other notable shows = Rhett Miller at City Winery + DJ RAC at Highline Ballroom + Slonk Donkerson at Rough Trade

SEE ALL OF OUR TUESDAY PICKS

Wednesday - December 17th, 2014 A.D.

Beach Fossils (please pay no attention to that four year old band profile) + PC Worship (that one's good, though) lead a good lineup at Glasslands. Please note: pretty much every night at Glasslands from here on out will be a good lineup. Because it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, man. This one is probably sold out. But you should double-check that. Go ahead. Do my work for me. There you go. That’s it.

Ronald Paris of Porches and Frankie Cosmos of Mr. and Mrs. Kline Cates lead a low key holiday spectacular at The Studio at Webster Hall. This one should pop pretty good. I gotta have my pops.

Fuzzy chill-out artists Baked play Shea Stadium tonight and might I recommend a good Girl Scout Cookie strain to pair with this show? Or, perhaps a nice Blueberry Pie? Whichever you prefer.

Other notable shows = Soulside at Saint Vitus + Jordan Lee of Mutual Benefit at Silent Barn + Soulside at Saint Vitus Bar
