All The Shows-Parties Going On In LA on New Year's Eve, 2011

New Year Eve in Los Angeles seems to have piled up a large amount of shows and parties everywhere in the city, I give you this list which probably does not even compile everything:

 – Wanda Jackson, Best Coast at Club Nokia, at the very reasonable price of $28.50. If you want old school with new school, together in the same bill.

– Pink Martini at the Walt Disney Concert Hall $69-209

 – Cults and Jenny and Johnny at the Standard Hollywood: this one is really over the top too, $75 to $125!! I wonder whether there is a meal with champagne coming with that?

– Buzzzbands New Year Eve at the Satellite with The Henry Clay People, Races, LA Font, Jillinda Palmer/ Joe Napolitano, and Paulie Pesh in the upstairs bar. This one is really cheap! $10-12

– Give Up the Ghost at a secret location which is the Ukrainian Center I think,…. But this show has sold out in a flash about 3 months ago already!!

– Musiq Soulchild at the House of Blues, $67.50 to $2000!!! (No comment on that one)

TR3 featuring Tim Reynolds, Marcus Eaton at The Mint $35-40

 – NYE at Universal City Walk with live music and DJs, free!

But if you have decided you want to have it all, you also can buy a $125-195 ticket depending on options, an Hollywood VIP Pass that gives you VIP access to between 5 and 8 New Year's Eve club parties, including Highlands, Rolling Stone, Egyptian Theatre Courtyard, Playhouse After Hours and the Las Palmas Block Party

 If you live outside of LA:

ATB with Manufactured Superstars at The Observatory, $100

La Cave’s NYE Dance Party at La Cave, free!

 What a list! That Give Up the Ghost reunion would have interested me, but it is sold out, so I eventually will go to that Buzzzbands New Year Eve at the Satellite, not too bad!
