Color Channel are at Great Scott with New Highway Hymnal + Fat Creeps + Yale, MA
Don't feel like ringing in 2013 by fighting red-faced bros at the bar for watered down dixie cups of beer at some "all-you-can-drink" party? We feel you. That's why we rounded up just a few of the bands playing shows (and some under ten bucks!) around town as an alternative.
The morning after a night of excessive, debauched revelry, brunch is less of a trendy breakfast/lunch straddling meal than a biological imperative. Come January 1, 2012 we're going to need Bloody Marys and we're going to need you to keep em' coming. That, plus something greasy and carb-based (plus cheese.
By now, we hope you've checked out all the parties, shows, and opportunities for some end-of-2011 debauchery in our New Year's Eve listings. But if you're more of a gourmand than a hard-partier, perhaps a classy dinner for two (or more...whatever you're into)
is more up your alley. We rounded up just a few of the many, many restaurants around town offering special prix fixe New Year's menus.
Just be glad you've got us and won't be stuck watching the Ball in Times Square this year...horror show
Already checked out all the galas, boat parties, costume balls, and cover-free New Year's parties? Well, not to confuse you further or anything, but there are more! We've rounded up all the awesome live shows at which you can rock your way into 2012 [New Highway Hymnal + earthquake party!, J.
These people are having themselves a time!
If you haven't made your New Year's plans yet...what are you waiting for? This shit books up fast so -- if you don't want to end up waiting pitifully on the wrong side of a velvet rope outside of some packed out bar downtown, freezing your tail off with the rest of the under-dressed, overly-made up club girls who forgot to make their plans in time -- you'd better make a decision now.
Don't cry....we've got your holidays covered.
Phew, we're almost there. Just a few more work days and we can all dive headfirst into a man-sized vat of egg nog and marinate there until next year. What with all the shopping, stressing about the strain said shopping is having on your wallet, and forced merriment, your holiday spirits are probably already drooping.
Back in February, I wrote about all sorts of ways humans adjust our clocks
to more closely match the natural world. Here's an example of how bad
we are at doing this stuff. Back then - ten months ago - scientists whose job it is to do this stuff were predicting that the next "leap second" would be added at the end of 2009.
WRONG! It's tonight
