New Years WishesMr. Brownstone, Patti Smith, Les Savy Fav, The Virgins, Earl Greyhound, The Dresden Dolls, Dean & Britta, and a few others were all part of my first big 'New Years Eve in NYC' rundown this year. Then came news about Gogol Bordello, Dirty Projectors and Nellie McKay. We even heard about Velvet Revolver (which has since been reduced in price) and Chris Rock (which since had Jill Scott added to the bill). Here are some more NYC choices:

  • Studio B New Year's Eve Celebration featuring Slick Rick the Ruler, Moby, Frankie Bones , Kudu, Holy Ghost!, Jacques Renault, The Bangers, Eamon Harkin - only $20.
  • "What happens when you cross NYC's top burlesque night with a monster New Years Eve dance party? Burlesque + Discoteque = BURLESQUE - O - TEQUE!" @ Galapagos - tickets are on sale.
  • "NYE Official Radiohead Album Release Party with Young Love, 33HZ and VHS or Beta Deejays" - tickets are very expensive and so are drinks @ Hiro Ballroom.
  • DJ XXXchange from Spank Rock is playing at the Annex
  • The Y2k8 Dance Party @ Silent Barn is all ages and will have free Sparks and is only $5.00 to get in - 6 live acts and/or DJs, presented by Famous Friends & Big Stereo.
  • A Place To Bury Strangers is playing the RATED-X & TRASH! New Years Eve Extravaganza at Don Hill's (sort of this year's Motherf*cker party since there isn't Motherf*cker anymore)
Studio B is my first choice of that new bunch, but Galapagos and Silent Barn sound great too - and Don Hill's will probably be good too (if you liked going to Motherf*cker). Hiro Ballroom I can definitely do without.

WIN STUFF: I have one pair of tickets to give away to Mr. Brownstone, and another pair for Nellie McKay, and I still never gave away that pair to the Dirty Projectors, AND I have two DVD copies of The Ten to send out as well. The Ten is related to The State. More details on all of this below.....

Studio B sounds best to me. Has anyone done NYE there before?

"Studio B sounds best to me. Has anyone done NYE there before?"

Has Studio B even been open (to non-Polish people) for a year?

something about mercury lounge on NYE has always been appealing. Earl Greyhound and Big Sleep sounds good to me.

"something about mercury lounge on NYE has always been appealing. "

ha ha ha ha ha this is possibly the most ridiculous statement I have yet read on Brooklyn Vegan comments.

in your dreams, Bowery Presents. There is nothing appealing about the prospect of spending NYE at the Mercury Lounge.

"Big Sleep sounds good to me."

the Big Sleep, btw, just totally absolutely suck ass. really dull run of the mill bar band, promoted to death by their label and their booking agency. if they weren't on Les Savy Fav's label and booked by the same agency who books Modest Mouse they would never get on any shows. They have zero fans.

yes, big sleep suck balls. Earl greyhound kinda rocks though.

New Years eve is one big shitstorm in the city. I almost rather be at mercury on new years than on any other night. maybe its my fear of large crowds and people with silly hats on.

you're full of shit. nobody wants to spend NYE at a suffocatingly boring space like Mercury Lounge. that place is the opposite of fun.

The Rubenesque lass who sells tickets at the Mercury Lounge is HOTT.
