Drums flyer

The Drums recently headlined (or co-headlined?) Webster Hall one day before appearing as a special guest headliner at Santos Party House not long after headlining Bowery Ballroom. NME rated their album one of the top 10 of 2010. Q Magazine said the self-titled effort was #32. The point is that The Studio at Webster Hall is a small (intimate) venue for the band now, and since their January 19th show there is raising money for a good cause, the $25 price tag shouldn't scare you too much. Guards and The Hairs both open, and all proceeds go to Dan Duggins.

Guns n' Roses tribute band Mr. Brownstone sold out Music Hall of Williamsburg on December 31st, 2007, so the fact that they're playing the much smaller Rock Shop on December 31st, 2010 (aka New Years Eve), seems, well, intimate too.

Another recently announced New Years Eve option is Titus Andronicus and Real Estate. Another Park Slope area New Years Eve option is Har Mar Superstar.

The Drums: People actually like this? What's there to like?

Mr. Brownstone aren't a tribute band... they are a drunken cover band. And they are insanely fun. The '07 NYE show was a total fucking blast.

That shit is funny cause it’s true.
Mr. Brownstone can actually give the crowd what they want a complete show.
