New Year's Eve Silver Soiree @ The Magic Stick:
$5 will get you in to both the Magic Stick and Garden Bowl. This party includes music from about 18 bands including Amy Gore & Her Valentines, Patrick Davy & The Ghosts, Replicas, Weed Nap and a bunch of others. It's cheap, you can dress up or dress down and let's be honest, The Magic Stick is probably your home away from home anyways. One of the only down sides we see to this is that it is All Ages, but hey, if you plan to kiss someone that's underage at midnight, that detail might be a plus for you!
Slow Jams New Years Eve:
Slow Jams is already your favorite way to spend a Monday night! Why not spend this Monday night, New Year's Eve, at Woodbridge Pub? Your favorite DJs, Erno the Inferno and EastSide Jon, will be spinning some tunes. Rumor has it they may even be joined by some special guests! It's FREE to get in the door, beers are only $2, there's a champagne toast AND you get to spend the night in the classy, yet laid back setting of Woodbridge Pub. Sounds like a good idea to us!
The Ball at The Hall with Kaleido:
While Slow Jams will be a little bit more of a laid back evening, we're pretty sure The Ball at The Hall will be a bit crazier! Kaleido will be taking the stage at St. Andrew's Hall for a huge party put on by Live Nation and 98.7. If you're looking for a little more intense party, this is probably the place to be. Kaleido will put on an awesome show and there will be DJs in St. Andrew's and The Shelter all night long (a little different than the DJs at Slow Jams though). $25 get's you in the door and you might have a chance to score some of that $$$ back because they are doing a cash balloon drop at midnight.
Nude Photo NYE: Detroit:
So, we don't know a whole lot about this one, but judging by the flyer, we know we like it. Can't really go wrong with a nude picture of Marilyn! The party's being put on by the guys from Sexual Tension Detroit with music provided by Secrets, Jerry Downey and Dr. Disko Dust. It's happening at The Temple Bar, it's only $5 to get in, and it goes all night long, from 10 p.m. - 4 a.m. Even if you don't want to make this your only stop for the night, definitely keep it in mind for some late night dancing! This party is only for those 21 and up though!
Twistin' Tarantuals New Year's Eve at the New Way:
Well, many of our followers live in the Ferndale area, so this might be a good option for you guys! This Rockabilly Trio will be bringin' out their stand-up bass and greasin' up their pompadours to ring in the New Year with you. Good music, close to home and only 7 bux.
Mac's Bar Goddamn New Year's Eve with The Goddamn Gallows:
Another option if you're looking to see a great band on NYE. The Goddamn Gallows put on one hell of a show and Mac's Bar is a pretty awesome place, but you'll have to trek it out to Lansing for this one. The Devils Cut and The Hunky Newcomers will also be hitting the stage. It's only $10 to get in and 18+ are welcome.
Melvin Davis @ Cliff Bell's:
If you're looking for a little classier New Year's Eve, this is probably your best bet. Melvin Davis & the United Sound will be performing their legendary 60's soul from 10 p.m. - 1:30 a.m. There's only a $20 cover charge, which includes a champagne toast. Or, if you're looking to make a night of it, you can also get a 4 course dinner for the ticket price of $60, which is served from 7 - 11 p.m. Sounds like a fun reason to be fancy for the night!
Of course these aren't all of the parties going on around town, just the ones that popped out at us. Most of your bars will probably be having a champagne toast or you can stay at home and have a bottle of champagne all to yourself! Wherever you end up, we hope you all have a fun, stress free New Year's Eve and we can't wait to party with all of you in 2013!
