Once again, millions of people will be flooding the (rather snowy) streets of New York City to ring in the New Year. But if watching the ball drop in Times Square or drinking the night away at a bar aren’t your ideal NYE destination parties, here are a few worthy alternatives.
-The always-reliable Roots crew will be closing out a huge year with a huge show, playing three sets at Brooklyn Bowl. The venue, which had a major year in its own right, is a regular DJ spot for ?uestlove.
-Titus Andronicus ended the year with lots of high praise for its newest record, The Monitor, which appeared on our Top 25 Albums list and has a song, “A More Perfect Union”, on our Top Songs list. Tomorrow night, you’ll be able to find them at Ridgewood Masonic Temple, playing a Todd P-sponsored show with Real Estate, Julian Lynch, and former Titus bandmate Andrew Cedermark, who released his excellent solo debut Moon Deluxe this fall. The all ages show – probably not the easiest thing to find on such an alcohol-centric holiday – costs $16 at the door.
-I’ve never seen Butthole Surfers, but I have a feeling that they put on a pretty memorable show. If you’re in the same boat as me, or if you’ve seen them a hundred times over the last thirty years, spending New Year’s Eve at a Surfers show is definitely an enticing prospect. And, just your luck, that’s happening tomorrow night at Williamsburg Hall of Music. Tickets for the 18+ gig are still available. Lumerians opens.
-Ariel Pink, another NV favorite, will be playing a rare solo set 234 Starr St. in Brooklyn during a twelve hour party hosted by Weird Magic, The Daily Ghost, and Vibes Mgmt.
-Finally, Cake Shop is throwing a full-on NYE bash featuring Reading Rainbow, La Big Vic, X-Ray Eyeballs, and Food Stamps, as well as DJ sets by Vivian Girls’ and The Babies’ Cassie Ramone and Woven Bones’ Andy Burr, who is also playing a solo set. It’s $12 to get into the 21+ show.
Are you going to be at these shows or another when the clock strikes midnight? Tell us about it in the comments section.
