13. Dec. 8 Matisyahu Hanukah Concerts (Manhattan, sorry folks)

In 2011, Brooklyn hosted a concert by the now-legendary Matisyahu, with his melange of Hassidic tunes and Jewish sensibility combined with reggae and hip-hop beats. He performs this year in a Manhattan venue.


His last studio album was in 2009, called Light. In 2011 he released a live album, Live at Stubb's, Volume 2. Among his most famous songs are "King Without a Crown", "One Day", "Jerusalem" and "Youth." If you haven't yet, heard him, go.
