While mass gatherings were on a bit of a hiatus in 2020, live music venues began to gradually reopen later in 2021 as vaccines rolled out to the general public and the pandemic began to show some signs of receding (at the time).

For the third year in a row (minus 2020, when we skipped this question), our readers picked the Newport Music Hall as the number one spot in the city for live music. The venue remained shuttered the first half of the year but reopened with some stellar shows in the second half of 2021 including Wolf Alice, Idles, Julien Baker and Silversun Pickups. Some of the upcoming shows in 2022 include Sleigh Bells, half•alive, Animal Collective, Grandson, Lights, Benee and much more.
