Pill is OMR's NYC's Hardest Working band of 2015!

Pill is OMR's NYC's Hardest Working band of 2015!

At the end of each year, our friends at OhMyRockness.com have the habit to make a list of NYC's Hardest Working Bands - i.e. the ones that played the most shows, at least according to their database (they don't list every single show played in NYC, it would be impossible since there are a lot of unofficial gigs and improvised venues). Even though obviously limited to indie and punky acts, this is definitely an interesting chart, because, in NYC, only artists who have the rare ability to consistently draw a decent crowd get booked more than a couple of times per quarter - and all of the bands in this list played an average of two to three shows per month! Topping the list is post-punk-with-sax quartet Pill, who played THIRTY NINE (!!!) shows in 2015 (with a stunning average of more than three show per month in NYC alone!). The band released their self titled debut EP on local label Dull Tools in March, and then single "Hot Glue" (streaming below) on Mexican Summer in August. They already have FOUR shows scheduled for January 2016... evidently, they are trying to best themselves!

P.S. Tall Juan and Acid Dad share the OMR's list podium, full list with 21 names here - congrats to all!
