LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

In a few hours, the Year of the Rabbit will be back-kicking its way into 2011 with all the hippity hoppity hooliganism and excessive mating that the name suggests. While you still can, check out what you may have missed during the Year of the (Eye of the) Tiger.

There are top releases from LA bands, what the magazines said, interviews, transmissions from a radio sweetheart, newspaper input, best new artists, stuff people actually listened to, and a bazillion best-of groupings that go beyond indie. For a decent assessment of the meta landscape, peruse a ranked roundup of roundups or read about overall trends in paragraph form if lists aren't your thing.

A big, big THANK YOU to all the readers and writers and listeners and artists and fans and friends and venues and publicity and PR magicians and heavy-handed bartenders that tirelessly help us connect with the sound of LA. A happy, healthy New Year from all the ears at LAist!! Welcome honey bunnies, to 2011.
