Best NYC Concerts This Week (VIDEOS)

The holidays are stressful and are often accompanied by terrible music. Do yourself a favor and check out one of the many shows this week that are happily sans jingle bells.

One exception is the Ronnie Spector "Best Christmas Ever" concert on Friday because she survived being married to Phil Spector and because The Ronnettes version of "Sleigh Ride" is pretty great.

Dance out your frustration at the show of Baltimore-bred Rye Rye or Chicago juke queen Kid Sister.

For a total throwback, Weezer is performing all of The Blue Album on Friday. Just be careful your holiday sweater doesn't come undone (get it??).
