Calvin Hobbes NYE

It's New Year's Eve and every place in the city is trying to get your last dollars of 2013. There are a bunch of great show options tonight. Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Gogol Bordello, Man Man @ Terminal 5
It wouldn't be New Year's in NYC without the high-energy, vodka-filled gypsy punk sets of Gogol Bordello. They're at Terminal 5 tonight and weirdo rock band Man Man provides quality support.

Andrew W.K., The Original Punk Rock Heavy Metal Karaoke Band, Team Spirit, Aleister X @ Irving Plaza
Literally nothing says party like Andrew WK, and if you're looking for a New Year's Eve PARTY, Irving Plaza may very well be your best bet.

Thurston Moore, Chelsea Light Moving, Mike Watt, John Zorn & more @ The Stone
Thurston Moore has quite the night planned for New Years Eve. At 8 PM, he'll do an early duo set with avant-sax great John Zorn ($25 at the door), and then he's got a second from from 10 PM - 1 AM that starts with a trio set of Thurston, The Minutemen's Mike Watt, and Black Flag/Sonic Youth/Minutemen/etc album designer Raymond Pettibon (brother of Greg Ginn), followed by Thurston's current band Chelsea Light Moving. The late show is $50 at the door. Doors open at 9:45 and only 75 people will be admitted.

Mykki Blanco, DJ Rashad, Boychild, DJ Larry B, T.E.A.M.S., Ian Isiah, Princess Nokia, Michael Magnan @ Gramercy Theatre
Mykki Blanco makes forward thinking rap that also makes for a party at the live shows. Mykki's got a stacked list of guests for tonight too including footwork mastermind DJ Rashad.

Blood Orange (solo), DIIV, Potty Mouth, Nothing, Ratking @ Baby's All Right
New-ish Brooklyn venue Baby's All Right has put together a pretty stacked show for New Year's Eve with the shoegazey indie pop of DIIV, the punky indie rock of Potty Mouth, the super heavy shoegaze of Nothing, and the alt-rap of Ratking. Perfect Pussy was initially on this bill, but unfortunately they dropped off. UPDATE: Last minute addition, Dev Hynes will be performing at 2AM, playing "unheard & unreleased music from CUPID DELUXE sessions."

No Statik, Nomad, Perfect Pussy, La Misma, Grudges, Creeping Dose @ Acheron
...because Perfect Pussy are now playing this show instead. The Syracuse noise punks whose live show cannot be ignored will be joined by a genre-appropriate lineup that includes Bay Area hardcore shredders No Statik and some of NYC's best current punk bands like Nomad, La Misma, and others.

Elvis Depressedly, Spook Houses, Crying, Morrison Brook, Alex G @ David Blaine's The Steakhouse
It's a DIY New Year's Eve at this Brooklyn house show that includes the indie rock of Spook Houses, the chiptune of Crying, the lo-fi singer/songwriter Alex G, and more.

Phish @ MSG
Love 'em or hate 'em, Phish's New Year's run at Madison Square Garden is always quite the event for jam fans, and it wraps up tonight with the grand NYE finale.

Clutch, Into Another, Lionize @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Stoner rock greats Clutch ring in the new year with reunited post-hardcore vets Into Another and Lionize, who are no strangers to wild NYE shows.

Gesaffelstein, Brodinski, Para One, Lenvi, Don Clark, Hiyawatha, Branchez, Arnold, Tony Quattro @ Slake
This show leans a bit towards bombastic EDM, but one producer we wouldn't miss is France's Para One whose "You Too" single is one of the finest disco house tracks of the year.

DJ Spinn & Secret Guest, Traxman, L-Vis 1990, Nick Hook, J-Cush, Durban, TCJ @ 285 Kent
While 285 Kent may or may not be closing, they'll definitely be open tonight for this NYE rave thrown by the folks at Lit City Trax.

Antibalas, Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra @ SOB's
Fela-inspired afrobeat band Antibalas play THREE shows at SOB's tonight (8 PM, 10 PM, 12:30 AM), and they're joined by Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra who do salsa covers of indie songs.

The Fela! Band, Rich Medina @ Knitting Factory
With there being three different Antibalas shows tonight, you might have time to squeeze in this other Fela-related NYE show too.

Murphy's Law, Urban Waste, Zombie Fight, Skum City, Death to Slater, Sewage @ Trash Bar
Long-running NYC punks Murphy's Law will ring in the new year in their hometown at the dingy Trash Bar.

Jill Scott, Luke James, DJ Premier @ Radio City
Neo-soul great Jill Scott will be doing a pretty classy New Year's Eve celebration at NYC's historic Radio City Music Hall.

Punch Brothers, Sarah Jarosz @ Bowery Ballroom
Brooklyn bluegrass band Punch Brothers wrap up their three-night Bowery Ballroom stint with this final, festive performance. Tickets are still available.

Jim Jones Revue, The Compulsions, Jeremy and the Harlequins, New York Junk, Graveyard Lovers @ Bowery Electric
For an old school sneer-n-attitude rock n' roll way to ring in 2014, you'd be hard-pressed to do better than The Jim Jones Revue. The rest of the bill is an equally denim-and-leather kind of vibe. Tickets are still available.

Moon Boots, Jkriv, Free Magic, Faso @ Glasslands
There's been much talk about a "house revival" this year thanks to breakthroughs from Disclosure, Duke Dumont, Rudimental, and others, and Chicago's Moon Boots is right up there with them, making the kind of catchy stuff you can dance to all night.

Matthew Dekay, Avatism, Jimmy Edgar, DJ Three, Konrad Black, Taimur & Fahad & more @ Output
Brooklyn's new-ish dance club Output has tons of electronic musicians and DJs lined up for this big New Year's Eve party. The venue's been home to some of the best dance parties of the year, and tonight's will hopefully be no different.

MikeQ, Venus X, $hayne, Rizzla, Uniique, LSDXOXO, DANII PHAE @ GHE20G0TH1K Warehouse
GHE20G0TH1K is gathering up some regulars from their parties to celebrate NYE GHE20G0TH1K style.

Delta Spirit, (Cults DJ set), Sacco @ Brooklyn Bowl
Rootsy anthemic rockers Delta Spirit will be tearing it up at Brooklyn Bowl with a DJ set from Cults. The show is sold-out but there will be limited tickets available at the door.

Tanlines (DJ), Cale Parks (DJ) @ Brooklyn Bowl
After Delta Spirit, stick around for what's sure to be a fun night of dancing with Tanlines and Cale Parks on the 1s & 2s.

Spank Rock, Amanda Blank, Roxy Cottontail @ El Privado
Party-centric electro rapper Spank Rock performs tonight with frequent cohort Amanda Blank at this Chelsea lounge.

Avan Lava, Juan Maclean (DJ), JDH, Justin Strauss, Evan Michael, Alan + Andrew Blancato, Mondo @ Cameo
A bit of a hodgepodge, but this looks like a fun night of NYE dancing that goes from Mondo's indiepop leanings to Juan Maclean's house-centric dancefloor fillers, to Avan Lava's over-the-top style.

Slavic Soul Party @ Barbes
"Fiery Balkan brass, throbbing funk grooves, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops: Slavic Soul Party! is just what it says." If that sounds like your way to celebrate the new year, head to Park Slope's Barbes which is open from 10 PM until late.

Blondie & others @ Times Square
If you're planning on going to this, you're probably heading there pretty soon (and probably a tourist), but for the rest of us who will watch 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' from our televisions (if at all), we can count on seeing Blondie among the list of performers that also includes Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Miley Cyrus.

Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls and Brandon of Crocodiles are DJing at Night of Joy (667 Lorimer in Williamsburg) and that's free.

Also browse our New Year's Eve Guide and our "New Year's Eve" tag for more.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

LOL 11:26, I highly doubt think ticket brokers are complaining about lack of profits from selling Billy Joel tickets.
As of right now, you can't walk in the door for less than 179 bucks for tonight's show. Not sure what your logic is in thinking that it's not a hot ticket.

11:42, the 179 dollar seats on Stubhub are not 250 face seats. They are behind-the-stage upper levels that have a face of 81.

Shouldn't Billy Joel be playing in Times Square with Ryan Seacrest?

Posted by Anonymous | December 31, 2013 11:48 AM

I can ask for $4200 a seat on StubHub, that has no bearing on what the seat is actually valued at in the marketplace. Thanks for playing, and have a great New Year palsy.

11:50, thanks for playing what?
Anyway, hours before showtime, people don't dick around with asking prices; the asking price is usually pretty close to the market value at that point due to the limited time left to unload the seats.
Have a wonderful New Year as well.

"Miami 2017" is slowly coming to reality (spooky but true), remember these lyrics?

" We held a concert out in Brooklyn-
To watch the Island bridges blow.
They turned our power down,
And drove us underground-
But we went right on with the show..."

Moonshot, Woodstock, Watergate, punk rock
Begin, Reagan, Palestine, Terror on the airline
Ayatollah's in Iran, Russians in Afghanistan
Wheel of Fortune, Sally Ride, heavy metal, suicide
Foreign debts, homeless Vets, AIDS, Crack, Bernie Goetz
Hypodermics on the shore, China's under martial law
Rock and Roll, cola wars, I can't take it anymore

Billy Joel is from Hicksville, which is pretty much the definition of Nassau County "style" and sensibilities. Although he is now more commonly associated with the Hamptons, his whole persona is Nassau all the way. Of course you would not know this, since you would have to have lived in New York since before 2000 and they don't teach this in Iowa public schools.

BV comments section has to be the most surreal and absurd way to transition into a new year. Between iPods, ASCII erotic art, poetic eulogies to NYCH, Billy Joel love/hate messages, hummus trolling, Stubhub trading strategies etc. this is probably the most bizarre community I've ever seen.

Did anyone watch the one Billy Joel song that ABC showed? I saw it online this morning. Forget that Billy's voice is shot these days. Complete hilarity when they showed the crowd. As expected it was made up of old geezers and 40 something weekend warrior once in a blue moon show goers and their stupid cougar attachments.

This should be a word of warning to BV. When you start to cover crap like Timberlake and Beyonce, this is the type of dreck that will start to infiltrate this blog as clearly evidenced by some of the comments above.

11:19, no this is what happens when you have a music blog based out of NY... Billy Joel is a NY thing, mostly a Long Island thing. Hipsters who come here from Iowa or whereever don't get it. Most of the people who like Billy are native NYers.

^ Tell that shit to the tourists, Skippy.

Billy Joel is music that our parents could snap along to in order to convince themselves that they were hip. Springsteen looks like Sabbath compared to Billy Joel, and Springsteen is lawyer rock.

1:45 - I'm sorry that Billy Joel doesn't appeal to your punk sensibilities, Douche.

I am a native New Yorker (via Long Island) and while I can understand and appreciate Billy Joel's music I just can't listen to it. When I hear that voice I want to shoot the radio.

I'm glad that Billy Joel is still alive and kicking. After Walter shot him by the river I was sure he was a goner. I'm glad that he got out of the game with Jesse.
