Around Town: New Year’s Eve events in the area!

Around Town: New Year’s Eve events in the area!

Hey everyone,
So let’s face it…2011 is just around the corner (10 days to be exact) and if you haven’t planned out your night, you need to asap! But no worries, I have put together a small list of possibilities for you.  Usually, I stay in with my parents and we party at a relatives house into the new year but this year I’m doing it a bit different and going to a show at the 9:30 club featuring an amazing band called Gogol Bordello. I would’ve definitely added this to the list of possibilities but it sold out! You can try your luck on craigslist though, if you’re into gypsy-punk-funky type music. Okay, okay, back on track now! Here’s my list (in no particular order):
