out of the darkness and into the fire
Since it's almost that time, here's a quick recap of what's going down on New Year's Eve:
The Biltmore hosts the 4th(?) edition of the Winter Social, Ice Cream Social's annual December 31st bash. Tix are available at Scratch, Red Cat, Zulu, and the Biltmore off-sales counter.
Unfamiliar, eatArt, Love Dancing, and Arbutus records are throwing a pretty great looking party at the eatArt labs. Paula from Silly Kissers, Blue Hawaii, Grimes, Resorts, Makeout Videotape, and Sean Nicholas Savage all play live and Cadence Weapon and No Gold both take turns behind the decks. Tix are... sold out. Sorry.
NYE at the Waldorf features John Maus, Geneva Jaccuzi, and TRS-80 live, along with a whole wack of DJs in the various rooms. Tix are available here.
Goody and the Winnie Cooper gang host Blood Diamonds, Oh No! Yoko, and Autacoid. Tix are available here.
The Railway hosts Fuzzcat, Go Ghetto Tiger, and Strange Magic. Tix are available at the Railway or by phone at (604) 681-1625.
And, the Astoria welcomes 2011 with Rad Times New Year's. Tix are at the door.

Black Wizard is playing at Brandiz. I think it's the last show in that bar too.
