This past Saturday, New Yorkers received an early Christmas gift when Pandora hosted the Holiday Discovery Den at the Grand Ballroom. A fixture at SXSW, the Discovery Den aims to shine a light on the latest high-risers in music.

To determine the lineup for the first NYC edition of this event, Pandora went to the numbers to find out which acts local users have been grooving to in 2013 (ah, the benefits of running one of the most popular radio services on the Internet). The result: a triple bill featuring Canadian indie-pop twin sisters Tegan and Sara; electrofunk duo Chromeo performing a DJ set; and EDM emerger Pretty Lights, who put a fine endcap to his wildly successful year with a Grammy nomination last week.

All three acts were warmly received by the excited crowd at the Grand Ballroom—turns out escaping the wintry chill and bouncing around to some of the year's most celebrated bands is not a bad combination.
