Bonus points for New Year’s Eve falling on a Saturday this year. That gives us a great excuse to celebrate the entire weekend and then lots of us have Monday off. San Diego has plenty of events to entertain - even New Year’s Day parties so you won’t miss a beat. Now all you have to worry about is what to wear and who to kiss when the clock strikes midnight. Oh yeah, and those pesky resolutions for 2012 which you’ll forget by February anyway.
I’ll be warming up Thursday night at The Belly Up where the good vibes will be flowing with Beats Antique. The musical trio consists of producers David Satori, Sidecar Tommy and world-renowned belly dance performer/producer Zoe Jakes. They combine elements of downtempo, glitch, hip-hop and dubstep while adding horns, accordion, viola, and various unusual instruments to their arrangements. As of Wednesday night I got word that the show was sold out so hopefully you already have tickets. At Voyeur downtown it’s the electro/house duo LAZRtag from Los Angeles. The Office Twins will open the night and if you RSVP via this link there’s no cover before 10:30pm.
Friday has much to choose from including PeaceTreaty and Clockwork at Voyeur, New Years Eve Eve with DJs Adam Salter, Damn Juelz and Gabe Vega at U-31 and High 5ive at El Dorado with Charlie Rock, Saul Q, Question and Slyed.
Onto the main event - New Year’s Eve. The Flame in Hillcrest will celebrate with San Diego’s classiest Gothic, Industrial and Fetish event, Club Sabbat. DJ John C joins me in the main room and DJ Liquid Grey spins in the back room. Plus, free champagne at midnight as we toast to 2012. For more info, go here.
Big Night San Diego at the Hilton Bayfront will have 12 themed party areas with six dance floors; live bands include Little Hurricane, MEX and Geezer plus DJs Mike Czech, Edgartronic, Happee and more. 91X will be counting the top 91 songs of 2011 as voted by you. Get more info via this link.
The Hard Rock Hotel will feature headliner Sidney Samson, plus Jon Dadon, Erik Till, Collin Perry, Freshmaker, Tony Arzibon, Chris Garcia and more adding to the excitement of the night.
LED presents OMFG NYE 2012 with Fedde Le Grand, Porter Robinson, Hardwell, Bart B. More, R3hab and Madeon at Valley View Casino Center. This event is 18+ and will rage till 4am.
And these are just a few things to help you ring in the New Year.
Sunday morning before the hangover has time to kick in, keep the fun going with the 5am Daybreak Party at Voyeur featuring “Special Guests” that goes till 1pm. By the way, this is the Official OMFG 21+ After Party and you can get your ticket info here.
If you want to try and catch a little sleep in between the night and day festivities, make plans to attend the Resolution Day Party at The Ivy Rooftop with Scooter & Lavelle, Scotty Boy, Anthony Attalla and more from noon till 8pm.
