New Year's Rockin' Eve.

Minus Dick Clark, of course. Wondering what to do and where to go? Well, here's a list of happenings around Atlanta that you might be interested in.

  • At MJQ/The Drunken Unicorn, you have The Gates of Berlin and Snowden for a mere $10 cover. There will also be DJs and some sweaty dancin' fools up in there. Both bands have quite the following in Atlanta, so this is sure to be a show to please. I'll be at this one, wearing bells.

  • For a similar style, you can check out A Fir-Ju Well, Dropsonic, and Anna Kramer at the EARL. Haven't seen Dropsonic, but I know A Fir-Ju Well will put the rock hurt on your face with their stellar tunes. Bring $10 to get in and have yourself a couple PBRs.
  • The other place I wish I could be is Smith's Olde Bar to see the Judies, Lazyeye, and James Hall. The Judies' lead man Warren will mesmerize you with his superb stage presence and squirmy rockstar moves. It's $12, and you can find all of this talent and the best sound in Atlanta upstairs.

  • More of a hard rock fan? Then you might want to head over to Velvet Underground (right there attached to the Hard Rock Cafe) for Family Force 5, Last November, and Echovalve. All three of these bands have received much attention for their super live acts from all over the place, so you won't be disappointed. All of this is available to you for $10.

  • If you want to see some DJ action, then you should be at Vinyl for the Heathen Chemistry blowout. It's $60, but you actually get drinks and breakfast! Woohoo.

  • Finally, for those who want to swing their heads back and forth in a banging motion, Mastodon will be at the Masquerade.
And, for reference, here is the phone number for Checker Cabs. Just remember that they'll be busy as hell and you should give them time to come and get your drunk ass. 404-351-1111
