Jay-Z and Coldplay: Barclays Center, December 31, $45
Shawn Corey Carter may not have released an album this year, but with a new stadium, Blue Ivy, and an epic tour, 2012 sure seemed like his year. With Coldplay supporting (how many people can say that?), Hova returns to the Barclays Center for one more round to bring in the new year. Won't you join him?
Monday, December 31, 9 p.m., Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue (at Flatbush Avenue); Brooklyn; 212-359-6387.

Titus Andronicus: Glasslands Gallery, December 31, $30
Anthemic New Jersey punks Titus Andronicus are headlining Glasslands' New Year's Eve party, guaranteeing lots of fist-pumping and sing-along antics. Need a break from the bass drum? You can always head next door to 285 Kent for their NYE festivities, too. If DIY is your MO, Kent Ave is the place to be on Monday night.
Monday, December 31, 8 p.m., Glasslands Gallery, 289 Kent Ave (between South 1st and South 2nd streets), Brooklyn, New York; 718-599-1450.
Matthew Dear and Superpitcher: Le Bain, Azealia Banks: Top Of The Standard, December 31, $50+
Want to stick to Manhattan to say hello to 2013? There's no better place to be than The Standard Hotel. At Le Bain, your evening will be sound-tracked by minimal-techno legend Superpitcher and dark-pop mastermind Matthew Dear, or head to the Top of the Standard to hear hip-hop firecracker Azealia Banks where she is playing a snazzy black-tie event. You can't go wrong with either, so start making friends with the doormen now.
Monday, December 31, The Standard Hotel, 848 Washington Street (enter on West 13th Street between Washington St. and 10th Ave), New York, NY 10014; 212-645-4646
