10. NOFX

The delicately titled "New Year's Heave" at the Wiltern with San Francisco-based punk rock legends NOFX. NOFX is a foundational group, with a history spanning over two decades and over a dozen albums. They are fairly reclusive, eschewing contact with the media, and don't tour as often as we would hope.

NOFX "New Years Heave!"

When: Friday, December 31, 9pm-2am

Where: The Wiltern, 3790 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90010

Cost: $38 and up
