Starf*cker with Champagne Champagne at the Crocodile
Portland synth-pop outfit, Starf*cker, and local hip-hop trio, Champagne Champagne, are joining forces once more for a sold out show at the Crocodile. The groups toured together early this year and played an incredible show at the Croc last spring. According to reviews, when these bands get together, the result is spectacular, and if Starf*er brings even an iota of the energy they had at that show, people will be losing their minds.

“The Rolling Stones”/Night Beats/Country Lips at the Comet
Cover bands are usually something to be avoided for anyone with decent taste in music, but local celebrity super group “The Rolling Stones” prove that every once in a while, you can get what you want. Featuring members of Flexions, Truckasaurus, the Blood Brothers, and Whale Bones, the Comet is the where to be this New Year’s for some good old fashioned rock n roll.

Fresh Espresso/Don’t Talk to the Cops!/Katie Kate at Chop Suey
The raucous bunch at Out for Stardom are throwing a little bash they are calling “NO YEARS EVE!!!” at Chop Suey. This crew is infamous for popularizing the term “Party Mountain” (aka Capitol Hill), and have built a solid reputation for pulling out all the stops, promising mind-exploding craziness at this holiday show.

Brandi Carlile at the Neptune
This is a steep ticket price for the budget conscious, but for those with a little extra dough to spend and looking for a classy evening out for the holiday, this is a great show to check out. Brandi Carlile’s critically acclaimed alt-country filling the freshly revamped chambers of this historic venue is a wonderful way to ring in the new year.

Noddy/Ramona the Band at the Eagle
This notorious gay bar will play host to local electro acts, Noddy and Ramona the Band, at their New Year’s party this year. Expect drop dead sexy go-go dancers heating things up in the cage and non-stop grooving with a soundtrack provided by DJ Pocketrock-It and Deejay Nark. As always, there will be scantily clad jello shot fairies flitting about dispersing sugary goodness for $3 a pop.
