Please consider becoming a supporting member today.

Every bit helps and it's entirely pay-what-you-wish. Thanks for your support!

What We're About

Oh My Rockness has always been a labor of love. We (Claire & Patrick 👋) started the site in 2004 and we're still at it today, working hard to make it rule. We built OMR from scratch without any investors or funding and we still run it that way. We have always been 100% independent and hope that spirit shows.

Over the years we've hand-picked and listed over 360,000 shows, profiled over 2,100 bands and artists, added a show tracking and alert system ("My Rockness"), built an iOS app and finally brought the site mobile. We cover three cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago. We'd like to add more. We've definitely heard your requests.

We're not a tech platform or an automated algorithmic recommendation engine. We're a people-powered service for music lovers and show-goers.

Why We Need Your Support

While Oh My Rockness may be free to use, it certainly isn't free to make. The two of us spend countless hours each week maintaining "the blob."

In addition to our time, we have major tech costs every year in order to keep the site usable and up to current standards. And our wish list of future projects to fund is long -- projects that we just know will improve your show-going life.

More testimonials ❤️

My life in NYC would be very different without Oh My Rockness. It's an institution as essential as a greasy BEC on a hungover Sunday morning. Can't wait to go see live shows again (someday?) but for now, I'm happy to become a supporting member. -- Chloe

I don't read many emails but I always read the blob. Easily the best website on the internet. -- Matthew

With all the online noise, it's ridiculously nice to cut through the clutter with Oh My Rockness. I feel like I'm still keeping my ear to the local scene and get to experience the rise of great bands. -- Cammie

I love you guys... in a city of constant change, I'm so grateful for your consistency. <3 -- Joelle

Couldn't do NYC without you. All love to OMR! -- Asterios

My go-to site for the best shows ☺️ -- Jon

What would I do without you? I'd miss a shit ton of rad shows, I'll tell you that much. -- Anonymous

Live music is the best. I love going to shows and it's overwhelming to try and keep track of them all by band and club sites, social media, and countless email newsletters. I love because they do all the footwork for me. If I have a free night, I can check to see what's going on. And I sort by Just Announced at least once a day to make sure I don't miss anything. And, even though I kinda sagged email newsletters, the OMR one is always to the point while still being engaging. If they charged a membership fee, I'd pay it—but they offer this for free. So, I had to contribute and hope you will too. I'd be super bummed to lose this awesome one-stop resource for live music in LA. Thanks, OMR! -- Anonymous

A music-obsessed visitor from Seattle really appreciated your help finding the awesome electronic, indie, hiphop, and everything else while visiting NYC. -- Kimberly

In Memory of Joyce H. Blanton who gave her 3 sons a life long love of music. We're still going to concerts!

We're all under the same rock these days, my rock is your rock... Thanks for reminding us that, one day soon, we'll get out from under it together. -- Sam

OMR was my lifeline as a teenager and I am so happy you still exist. HBD! -- Loren

Happy Sweet 16! -- Andrea

You guys are so fucking funny that I'd read any newsletter y'all put out, regardless of topic! It's just a bonus that I've gone to countless great shows because of y'all. -- George

From NYC shows in college, to life in LA, and to even SXSW--you guys are literally a huge reason I've discovered so much of my music. I've literally gone to at least 50 shows in 16 years because of your website. Stay strong! -- Patrick

My guide to live music since I moved to NYC. Don't take OMR for granted, they provide such an essential service. -- Greg

I only found OMR within the past year but it has been such a good tool to find shows. I've had some great times because of the site. Keep up the fantastic work :) -- Lamont

I absolutely love this service and it has led me to stumble upon some of my favorite bands today. OMR is one of maybe three things and definitely the #1 thing that makes me grateful I dated my ex. She sucked but she showed me this glorious place. -- Daniel

You fine folks have been fantastic guides in my musical journey. Thank you! Please don't stop. -- Vikas

OMR has been the number one stop on my list for shows in nyc. Hands down an incredbily important endeavor for the music community and I would be, along with many people, very upset if they ceased to exist. -- Derrick

I've used you guys since I was in college to find shows in the city. When I travel, I use you to find shows where I'm at. I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't realize you had a member service, and am now a contributing monthly member. You've helped me discover bands, discover there were shows on nights I was bored, and discover awesome new venues I wouldn't have discovered. Thanks for all the good times. -- Renee

OMR is a fantastic one-stop-shop for all things musical happening in the NYC area! It's been an invaluable resource for me since moving to the city 6 years ago and I want it to continue! -- Shea

Been raising my Downtown, NYC kids--now 12 and 8 year old Grrrrrrrrrls--on (and, admittedly, and cannot fathom a life without access to the infinite resources provided day in and day out 24/7, 365 days/year! The soundtrack of my kids' childhood is, no joke, Oh My Rockness. I am happy to say: I love you... -- Mark

I took an impromptu trip with my partner to Los Angeles last month and before leaving she suggested we try to find a show to go to. I fired up my favorite music blob and lo and behold, there were two excellent candidates. I won Christmas/her birthday with surprise tickets to a sold out Shakey Graves show that I wouldn't have otherwise known about without OMR. Thank you, Oh My Rockness! -- Jason

I use this site every day and I'm more than happy to contribute! Thanks for everything, Patrick & Claire! -- Natalie

Thank you for all your hard work over the years! I've gone to so many more concerts because of you! -- Annie

So I already made a one time donation. But I got to thinking, what the hell would I do without I have it auto loaded into chrome along with mail and news. It's pretty much the first thing I check in the morning and periodically throughout the date. I use this site so much to get a jump on show ticket announcements that I consider my monthly $10 donation as a subscription to a service just as valuable at AmazonPrime, Playstation Network, or take your pick of entertainment sources. I'll do what I can to help keep it going. -- Tim

Without OMR I would be missing out on so many great shows in NYC! Thank you guys -sending much love! -- Kaoru

been following your blob since i was in high school and half my current age :sob: thank you! -- Amanda

I lose everything I write down. If I didn't have OMR, I would never be able to remember a show again :( -- Karl

I love you. -- DH

I discovered OMR when I was still in HS but would visit my brother in the city. The first show I ever stumbled into via OMR was at the original Silent Barn and honestly changed my perception of what live music could be. Years later I still go to random shows I find on OMR just because the name of the bands sound interesting. Some hits, some misses, but OMR always has my back at the end of the day. -- Arpan

I can't tell you the number of times a friend has told me they're coming to NYC and crashing at my place next weekend (rude) and every single time OMR was there for me with last minute concert ideas. Thanks Claire and Patrick! -- Kevin

Ohmyrockness is the only site I check regularly for anything and the only Twitter worth following that can get you tickets to incredible shows. -- Jonah

OhMyRockness is my number one source for finding out about concerts. There are dozens of shows I've gone to, that I found out about on OMR. I recommend it to every music fan I meet! -- Joe

As a concert promoter that lives 250 miles from NY, this is the most useful, relevant, and enjoyable blob out there. -- Tristan

Even guys almost 60 years old can crush on OMR. -- David

By far the best resource for NYC show information. -- Chris

Thanks for your awesome work! -- Gordon

Nothing makes me feel younger than being able to rattle off band names of shows I've been to that were found on this site. -- Nyssa

I go to 5+ shows a week thanks to the amazing selection listed at OMR :) -- Daniel

Been hitting you guys up for over a decade for my band touring needs. A comprehensive list of rock bands giging. Thank you so much! -- JC
