Andy Grammer rocks sold-out NY show

It's a great night to be a New Yorker, a 17-year-old girl, or both! 

From his dreamy looks to his catchy lyrics, Andy Grammer commanded the sold-out, teen-filled audience at Highline Ballroom Friday night, rocking tracks like "Keep Your Head Up," "Slow," and a cover of Rihanna's "We Found Love."   

"The fact that so many people wanna come out and rock with me means the world to me," Grammar told the crowd. 

We first saw Grammer a few months back ago opening for Colbie Caillat - and we've been hooked ever since!

Inside The Fray's intimate NYC show

It's a great night to be a Fray fan in New York.

The multi-platinum rockers played a very intimate, private show to 200 of their closest fans at the iHeartRadio Theater Friday night, rocking tracks like "How to Save a Life," "You Found Me," and "Run For Your Life."

"Piano player on a guitar, you never know what's going to happen," frontman Isaac Slade joked after he switched instruments for a performance of "Over My Head (Cable Car)."

The band's new record, Scars & Stories, will be available Feb. 7.

Darren Criss Succeeds in Making Us Cry

On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to catch a game-changing performance of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying featuring the incomparable Darren Criss!

But last night, Blaine Darren impressed us even more by bidding farewell to fans after the final performance of his three-week stint.

"For many years in New York City, I've been coming to every theater in this town," Criss told the hundreds who were waiting in the cold.

"I've waited outside hours for people, but I have never seen or felt the energy that has been given to me at all these shows."

We're kind of glad we weren't there, because we would have cried?

Check out Criss' farewell, above.

A very FATT New Year's Eve

Soul rockers Fitz and the Tantrums took New York by storm Saturday night, playing a beyond sold-out NYE show at Gramercy Theatre.

FATT played nearly two hours for the sequined and champagned crowd, even tackling a cover of U2's "New Year's Day" right before midnight.

"I hope you took [pictures] because that's never going to happen again," frontman Michael Fitzpatrick joked from the stage.

FATT is one of our favorite bands of 2011, so we wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else!!

Check out photos from their Atlantic City Borgata show the night before (which we obviously had to hit up), above.
