From the rough to the rhythmic, the folky to the fun, the sultry to the soulful; you’ll find somewhere to fit in this New Year’s Eve. Here’s a look at the best shows Lawrence has to offer this weekend.


Approach / Mouthbreathers / Miles Bonny – The Jackpot

One of Lawrence’s swankiest party hosts is inviting everyone out to his second home at the Jackpot to ring in the new year in style.
The event promises your weekly dose of Mouthbreathers and an exciting and long-anticipated performance from the one and only Miles Bonny. Come for his sultry and soulful performance, stay for the party that seems to follow Approach wherever he goes.



Split Lip Rayfield / Dumptruck Butterlips / Ashes To Immortality – The Bottleneck

The ultimate holiday hootenanny resides at the Bottleneck this weekend. That’s where festive folksters can get their full dose of bluegrass and country.
Dumptruck Butterlips promises to bring a variety of party-infused instruments, including the accordion and washboard. Speaking of unique instruments, the gods of bluegrass and alt-country, Split Lip Rayfield, will headline the show. Expect a real hoedown and the best folk music this area has to offer.


Candlepants / DJ Gloria Vanderbilt / MORRI$ / Tom Richman – The Taproom

Those who are looking to keep their dancing shoes on all night will want to look no further than the Taproom. Party-goers will cram into the cozy basement of the venue while Lawrence lovelies Candlepants and DJ Gloria Vanderbilt spin some of the sexiest tunes in the area.
Team Bear Club is behind this fantastic event, which means you’ll be packed in like sardines with some of Lawrence’s hardest party-people.

Fag-Cop / The Devil / Dean Monkey and the Dropouts – The Replay

For those looking to mix it up on New Year’s Eve, two very different genres of music will rock the Replay.
Doo-wop Darlings Dean Monkey and the Dropouts will most likely arrive with coordinated costumes and adorable dance moves, while Fag-Cop promises enough punk rock for those who love to thrash. Either way, both will help you get the party going hard.
