We list a lot of shows (8,367 this year, to be exact) for lots of bands, so it's always fun to crunch the numbers at the end of the year and see what cream rises to the top of the pops.
What you see below is the real show data we dug up.
These 10 bands played the most shows that we listed in New York City in 2015. They worked hard this year.
It takes hustle. It takes heart.
Please note #1: There are bands who have played more shows in NYC this year than those mentioned here, we just didn't list them.
Please note #2: It's possible that the bands mentioned here played even more shows in NYC than what's indicated below, we just didn't list them.
