Last Minute Plans for NYE
So if my general group of friends and acquaintances are any indication, then pretty much the entire world is going to Austin for new year's eve this year. Why? I don't really know. I guess there are some shows and DJ things going on down there, but none of it sounds amazing enough to sit through a 3 hour drive back to Dallas on New Year's Day with a serious hang over. Anyway, if you're wondering what the hell is going on in Dallas and Denton this evening, here are a couple things you might want to consider that don't involve huge covers or Rhett Miller:
The Tah Dahs/Laura Palmer/The Great Tyrant/Silk Stocking/Stag Film/The Hack and Slashers (Sloppyworld, 3601 Parry Ave): The advantage to this eclectic bill is that it's BYOB with only a $5 cover, and if you feel the need, you can hit up several other bars within walking distance in Expo park.
It's What we Get/EC Selecter/Bangs/The Hooded Deer (Hailey's): This We Made Out Once event appears to be one of the only non house party things going on in Denton this evening, so it should pretty crowded. Not sure what the cover is, but I assume it is reasonable, and judging by what I saw from them the other night, It's What We Get will be worth it if you're looking to dance.
Cool Out (The Cavern): I'm guessing this could be a pretty big party for all the Dallas dance types who decided to stay in town... Keith P will be there as well, and the cover is only five bucks.
