Yes, it’s that time of year once again – best of the year list-time, that is. We’re gathering together Best of 2016 from various media outlets, our own contributors and our readers, too. (Sure, just email ’em to us…)

Here’s Richard Brody’s list of the top 13 concerts of the year:

13. Alex Skolnick Trio @ the Van Dyck, September 16
Best known as the guitar shredder for Testament, Mr. Skolnick has been bringing jazz into his trio outings. And on this evening he gave us originals and everything from Ozzy to Django with a little Prince in between. It was a “what’s he gonna do next” set that he got just right.

12. The Fab Faux @ The Egg’s Hart Theatre, April 30
Although they were honoring the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Revolver, this was anything but a tribute band. They brought originality and innovation to their rendition of the evening songs that would have put smiles on the faces of the boys from Liverpool.

11. JD McPherson @ the Hangar on the Hudson, September 25
A great band that gave us an evening of high energy rootsy rock n roll that had the crowd, glasses held high, dancing from the first note to the last.
