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.....

Robert Christgau's entire Best of 2007 list can be found at Slate. Gogol Bordello can be found at Terminal 5 in NYC on New Years Eve. I'm giving away a pair of tickets. To win, email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Gogol). Include your first and last name and your favorite album of the year. I'll pick one winner at random and contact them.

P.S. Rolling Stone also thinks M.I.A. put out the best album of the year. SPIN says it was Against Me!

Gogol BordelloI never go to a show on New Years Eve, but all the options this year might finally change that. The latest worthwhile choice: Gogol Bordello at Terminal 5. Then again, tickets are $45, and I'm not sure if that includes anything besides a performace by GB.

Not necessarily worthwhile, but Velvet Revolver is playing Hammerstein Ballroom that night too (we New Yorkers are more forgiving than Japan). Tickets are like $100! Gogol Bordello suddenly looks like a bargain.

And speaking of gypsies, Devotchka signed to ANTI. Their new album will be released in March 2008, and now they're label-mates with Man Man. All tour dates below....

Gogol Bordello @ Terminal 5, NYC - Nov 3, 2007 (cred - Rebecca Smeyne)
Gogol Bordello @ Terminal 5

An in-demand actor — he starred in the film adaptation of Everything is Illuminated and plays a semi-fictionalized version of himself in Madonna's forthcoming directorial debut Filth and Wisdom — Hutz has charisma to burn, which he did with the public debut of his new persona, his female alter ego, a sort of she-devil in a long red wig and orange spike heels. It's a side of himself he explores in the Madonna movie, and one Hutz fans can only hope is a passing phase. It looks all wrong with his handlebar mustache. [NY Magazine]

Last time I saw Gogol Bordello in NYC, was at Irving Plaza. Last time I saw Gogol Bordello anywhere, was in Norway. Both shows were great, and in Norway I took a bunch of pictures which I'll post some time before I die hopefully. In the meantime, here's one of my favorites:

Gogol Bordello played two shows at the Fillmore Irving Plaza in NYC this past weekend, and Friday night (July 20, 2007) I missed Battles and Neko Case to see one of them. It's been said before, and I'll say it again - they really are one of the best live bands touring today - especially for those who like to jump around and dance a lot...

Gogol Bordello @ Irving Plaza

I went Friday, but Jefferson the photographer who took the photos in this post went Saturday, so that's the show you're seeing in these pictures....

Gogol Bordello always sell out (Fillmore New York at) Irving Plaza, so it makes sense that this July they're playing there two nights in a row. Tickets are on sale. All tour dates below...

GIRL TALK @ MERCURY LOUNGE, NYC | AUG 19. 2006 (MORE BY BAO)
Girl Talk @ Mercury Lounge

Go here (thx all) to find out how to RSVP to a SPIN party at Hiro Ballroom in NYC on Monday December 18th that will have performances by Gogol Bordello, Cold War Kids AND Girl Talk (plus guest DJ Nick Zinner). It's a few days before Gogol plays Irving Plaza (which I heard is sold out). SPIN is also still collecting votes for their end of the year poll.

Girl Talk is also playing Studio B in Brooklyn on February 9th, and other places on other dates.

Cold War Kids have a couple shows coming up - strangely, all sold out immediately.
