As mentioned, Glasslands will be closing out their time on Kent Ave with a New Year's Eve Party featuring four "special, secret" guests, all of whom have history with the venue. None of those guests have been revealed yet, but the night includes a one-hour open vodka bar early and a midnight champagne toast. Tickets go on sale today at 10 AM.
We asked Glasslands/Popgun's Rami Haykal and Jake Rosenthal for Top 10 lists. Rami gave us his favorite albums of 2014 (many of the artists have played Glasslands over the years); Jake gave us his 10 favorite Glasslands shows ever. You can find out who ended up their lists, below. What was your most memorable show at Glasslands?
Rami and Jake also asked us to let folks know that they are looking to collect any physical memorabilia from Glasslands, be it flyers, posters or whatever. If you have something, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Main Attrakionz @ Glasslands
Main Attrakionz's short run of dates leading up to 35 Denton and SXSW (where they'll play a BrooklynVegan day party) stopped in NYC this week for two shows, starting with a Sunday night show at Glasslands with BBU, Big Baby Gandhi, and Beans. Pictures from that one are in this post. One night later they played The Studio at Webster Hall with a completely different set of openers, Children of the Night, Maffew Ragazino, and Erick ARC Elliot. How was that?
The Brooklyn show was also the mixtape release part for Chicago's BBU, who released the Bell Hooks mixtape last month. It features contributions from Das Racist, The Hood Internet, Tony Baines, Montana Macks, and others. As noted on BV Chicago, the mixtape features the track, "Kurt De La Rocha," which pays tribute to Kurt Cobain and RATM's Zack de la Rocha. You can grab a free download of the entire thing at the Mishka bandcamp
Main Attrakionz also dropped a new track last month called "Focalin." Download that above or stream it below, along with updated dates and more pictures from Glasslands...

With 130 bands on this year's bill, its sure to be a weekend long feast for the ears.After extremely accurate early leaks and then much teasing, Lollapalooza oficially announces this year's lineup. Check it out below...
It's a monumental year for Lollapalooza, filled with homecomings, reunions, and first-times. Soundgarden, 1992 and 1996 Lollapalooza alumni, return to the Lollapalooza stage for their first performance since 1997. Green Day will rock Grant Park sixteen years after their first Lollapalooza appearance. While Lady Gaga will headline the festival only three short years after playing the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2007.
Arcade Fire returns to Grant Park, having played the reincarnated Lollapalooza in 2005. This is the first Lollapalooza for The Strokes - and also their first show in four years. And making their Lollapalooza debut: Phoenix." - Lollapalooza
