We're heading in to New Year's weekend- for some a thrilling excuse to party their asses off all night long, sloppy kiss as many people as possible ("Hey, come on! It's New Years!") and start the new year in a state of head-pounding (thanks, cheap champagne), stomach churning (ah, street meat?) haze.
For others it's an irritating looming night full of expectations just begging to be dashed. This year there are a couple of ways to circumvent at least the unfulfilled expectations (can't speak for the hangovers): My top choices are 1.) The Melvins with Big Business at the Showbox and 2.) Mama Casserole's Noise for the Needy Bash with the Emerald's, the King's English, the Knast and Loving Thunder. The Showbox will definitely be the loudest way to ring in the year of the pig, and for me the Comet requires no driving or insanely long waits for cabs- plus it's for a good cause.
Know of something better? Let us know what you're plans are. . .
