Your Los Angeles NYE Party Planner
New Year’s Eve is the ultimate night out—or as us hardened clubber’s refer to it—Amateur Night. However, if you want to brave the unwashed masses, there are a few palatable things for you to partake in. We’ll guide you, but since we’re staying in our own hood, we won’t be able to hold your hand. Sorry.
Grandmaster Flash @ The Roosevelt Hotel. Ring in the year old school style with an original master of the decks, Grandmaster Flash, and live performance from the Pharcyde. With EC Twins, Mel Lwun, Other DJ, Compression, Robtronik, and Andrew Ezer. Also: strangely incongruent, yet intriguing—an underwater water ballet performance by the Water Lillies. $100.
Mr. C @ the Standard Rooftop. Okay, there is debauchery and there is debauchery. The Standard Rooftop will make all the other parties in town look feeble in terms of consumption and insanity. Mr. C, big time techno jock, owner of the infamous London club, the End headlines a free party. FREE! (If you are still up from the night before, the party continues the next day with Droog, Visionquest, and Clovis at noon for $10.)
Mike Posner @ Roxy, with 2AM Club, Chiddy Bang, Shawn Chrystopher, Chris Young. The 21-year old wunderkid of left-field hip hop and electronic beats takes over the historic rock’n’roll venue. $31.50
The Head Cat @ Viper Room, with Rhino Bucket, the Bingers. Party with the superstar group of metal and rockabilly legends Lemmy of Motorhead and Slim Jim Phanton of the Stray Cats and Danny B. Harvey of Rokats in the Sunset Strip. $35-$50
Jason Bentley, King Britt, and Raul Campos @ the Viceroy. Have a swanky, high-end good time set to rootsy, soul-filled, funky beats from a superstar triad of DJs. $175
