Battle of the New Year’s Eve Bands

There’s no better way to hide from New Year’s Eve than to see a concert. Some might think that staying in and having a “quiet” New Year’s is the solution, but that little plan can backfire in a depression-inducing “no-bbq-to-attend-on-the-Fourth-of-July” kind of way. With the My Morning Jacket show long sold-out, my money’s on the Blonde Redhead show at Mezzanine (mezzaninesf.com) or Birdmonster at Bottom of the Hill (bottomofthehill.com) to be Jan. 1’s topic of conversation. Here, a quick breakdown of the pros of cons of each show. The rest is up to you.

Holiday Pick-Me-Up

And by nightlife, I mean, my life at night; which pretty much breaks down to too many nights out grabbing drinks and seeing live shows when I should go straight home and do laundry/get “a jump” on the week because it’s Monday and that’s what you’re supposed to do on Mondays instead of sharing a pitcher of margaritas (but what’s the point in each person ordering one salt-rimmed glass when you’ll both inevitably want another?).
