2015 was a good year for music in Boston, and it will continue to be until the clock strikes midnight on the 31st. If your New Year’s Eve plans have fallen apart, or didn’t exist in the first place, or didn’t include any music for some reason, we’ve got you covered. Here are six New Year’s Eve concert picks, and everywhere else you can go in Boston to hear some live music while you ring in 2016.

Folkateer family band The Felice Brothers are no strangers to Boston, and will close out 2015 in Allston with the help of fellow New Yorker Kinsey. (9 p.m.; Brighton Music Hall; $30; 18+)

Closing out their 10th year as a band, Hallelujah the Hills will celebrate a year that gave us their fifth album, Have You Ever Done Something Evil? The Boston legends will fill up the sticky floors of Great Scott, joined by fellow locals The Barbazons and Milk. (9 p.m.; Great Scott; $15; 21+)

South Shore country darling Sarah Borges will ring in the New Year with her bluesy licks in Cambridge’s coziest basement. She’ll welcome several secret special guests on top of her already stellar lineup of local players, including Marco Giovino of Robert Plant’s band and guitarist Mike Castellana. (9 p.m.; Lizard Lounge; $20; 21+)

Jambands aren’t always good, but when they are, they’re pretty darn fun to see. Boston’s own Dopapod is one of the best touring today, and they’ll send Worcester into a happy 2016 with the help of funk heros Turkuaz and Connecticut’s Kung Fu. (7 p.m.; Palladium; $30-50; all ages)

It was another productive year for Ruby Rose Fox, who released two singles, toured the country, and took home two Boston Music Awards. She’ll be joined in Somerville by Somerville Symphony Orkestar, Cask Mouse, and Cactus Attack. (7 p.m.; ONCE Somerville; $30-40; all ages)

The King of Party will ring in 2016 in front of a sold-out Paradise crowd, performing his 2001 debut album I Get Wet in its entirety. WK, whose anthems include “Party Hard,” “It’s Time to Party,” and “Party ‘Til You Puke,” will be joined by local bands Tigerman Woah! and Vundabar. (9 p.m.; The Paradise; $33; 18+)
