New Year's Eve 2009, Continued
Since we last checked in about what's going on this New Year's Eve, there've been minor developments in the world of Bowery Presents. Patti Smith at the Ballroom ($55, pre-scalped) and the earlier Crystal Castles show ($35 for the late set) are both sold out, Dirty on Purpose are breaking up and will play their last show as the support slot for A Place to Bury Strangers at Mercury Lounge ($25), (R.I.P., if they don't regroup) and Islands and Elvis Perkins were added to the Blonde Redhead show at Terminal 5 ($35).
Oddly, Joan as Policewoman plays John Zorn's the Stone. (Always $10, unless otherwise noted, which thus far, it is not.)
Famous Friends is throwing a dancey electro party at Europa with Kill the Noise and AC Slater ($25, or $40, if you are underage).
Still waiting on Union Hall, Union Pool ("Bubbles, Brass Bursts & Bullshit. More info TBA"), Union Docs.
For Knitting Factory's last show in its Manhattan location, Vegan presumptions include Akron/Family, Deerhoof, Dirty Projectors, Crystal Stilts and Deer Tick. If so, it'd be hard to find better live music with which to ring in the New Year. -- Jeremy Krinsley
