What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

So, what are you doing New Year’s Eve?

After all of the fun I had last year at No Play Music’s NYE celebration at Cheer Up Charlie’s, I am ready to do it again! This year’s festivities promise to be nothing short of amazing with sets by Deep Time, Hundred Visions, Love Inks, The Sour Notes, Mirror Travel, Pompeii, and The Laughing, followed by a DJ S.I.R. (fromĀ GirlFriend) dance party to close out the night.

Doors open at 8:00pm — and be sure to get there early because there will be enough free Tito’s vodka for the first 100 drinks. There will also be a complimentary champagne toast at midnight. Best of all, the cover is a mere $5.00 (advance tickets are available here).

But New Year’s Eve is all about choices, right?

Another tantalizing event is the New Year’s Eve 1984 party happening at Hotel Vegas, The Volstead, and Pine Street Station. Members of Bad Lovers, Dikes of Holland, Windsor for The Derby, P-Tek, Bobby Jealousy, Ugly Beats, December Boys, Moonlight Towers, Strange Attractors, Ghost Knife and many others will be performing popular and underground hits from 1984, including tracks from New Order, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Gang of Four, Adam Ant, Violent Femmes, Prince and the Revolution, Van Halen, The Smiths, The Replacements, Tina Turner, and Dead Kennedys.

The $15 cover charge ($13 advance tickets are available here) gets you into all three venues. There will also be two vans that will shuttle attendees between Hotel Vegas, The Volstead, and Pine Street Station.

Here are some videos to get you in a 1984 kind of mood…
