NYE live music options here & around the world

Every year, I always feel some sort of nagging “I shoulda, coulda, woulda ” when it comes to New Years Eve. Unlike those quieter manufactured religious holidays, NYE is sorta a huge amateur night and mess, one that is celebrated all over.

There are giant pricetags put on often ordinary looking shows and then there are some magical bills that actually do seem worthwhile…

I never seem to know for sure where to head to, so I end up seeing the Supersuckers at Slims or something…( well not this year, cuz they are in Utah…)

I know that because I spent way too much time this past month compiling a list of all the huge mega concerts & even many lil pub & vfw hall shows I could find…

Not just in the Bay Area mind you, but from Amsterdam to Auckland, Tokyo to Tucson…

and I figgered I should post it here before it becomes horribly out of date within the next few dozen hours…

So if yer looking on info on where the party is at when they drop the big ball…

read on after the jump…

This is the one & only ultimate New Year’s gig & show list.

I’ll highlight a few SF & Bay centric options up top and then go deep if you wanna know what’s going down elsewhere

One I thing I don’t do, and just call me old fashioned, but I don’t pay to see a DJ… I’m just not that impressed when a guy spins records for me. Unless he’s freaking a legend & recording act like Grandmaster Flash, you won’t see him on my list of things to do…

First, here’s some aribitrarily chosen SF music stuff to look into, (more are interwoven into the big list ):

Hipsters into electro infused indie rock should already know about Blonde Redhead, Shiny Toy Guns, amazing DJ Mike Relm, as well as locals Scissors For Lefty & Persephone’s Bees @ Mezzanine SF

Jam band freaks & friends have options galore with String Cheese Incident & the psychedelic circus like atmosphere produced under the name Sea of Dreams at Concourse Exhibition Center

Friends of the anti-war activist group Code Pink will wanna check out their benefit at the Zeum, featuring performances from Jill Sobule, and Country “Fixin To Die” Joe McDonald as well as Los Brothers Latin Fusion Band with Dr. Loco

Pop with a retro Vietnamese flava will be offered up by Dengue Fever at The Rickshaw Stop.

Boogie down with Dixie fried New Orleans rockers The Radiators @ DuNord

Noisy quasi-metal from longtime regional scenesters The F*cking Champs at 12 Galaxies

Bay Area rappers represent at The Independent where Lyrics Born is onstage or try the Bill Graham Civic with a hyphy “Pimp n Ho” ball hosted by Flava Flav featuring, Federation, Nump, Starski, San Quinn etc. While, down the Peninsula, local up & comers The Bayonics crew are @ Blue Chalk Cafe in Palo Alto

Across the street from Ruby Skye where the Crytal Method will be hitting the DJ decks, is John Lee Hooker Jr whose following in his pop’s show biz footsteps at Bisquits & Blues

Classy cats & kittens can head to the Top of The Mark for The Black Market Jazz Orchestra

Relentless up & comers Birdmonster & Boyskout are going to be dusting off the 2006 cobwebs with some indie rawkin’ good times at Bottom Of The Hill…

Chanteuse Connie Champagne rejoins Vice Grip & the New Morty show along with Mr. Lucky, etc at Bimbos 365.

Perennial quirky country faves Red Meat @ Annie’s Social Club, while pop chart wannabees The Lovemakers & Honeycut are at the Great American Music Hall

Across the Bay, the quiet island of Alameda gets a dose of retro metal with L.A. Guns @ Roosters Roadhouse.

And those who love legends might wanna stop mourning James Brown and head into Stockton where the octogenarian bluesman B.B. King is the @ Bob Hope Theatre.

In Marin, the authentic boogie woogie piano sounds of Mitch Woods & His Rocket 88s light up Mill Valley’s Throckmorton Theater, and right nearby on the same block, Sweetwater has Vinyl.

and I hear a house party on Pegasus Ct in San Jose will feature Stillborn Jesus

Uh, so that’s just a few ideas… now get scrolling below… Whether yer into country, dancehall, indie, screamo, classic rock, R&B or hardcore punk, you have a right to know if there’s something going on for ya below…

but be prepared to commute…

I’ve got shows posted here alphabetically from Belfast to Biloxi, Denver to Dublin, Las Vegas to London, Mombasa to Mumbai, Nashville to Nesquehoning, Park City to Perth, Seattle to Seoul!

Whether you want to party in South Carolina or South Africa, I’ve got info listed for the serious & casually curious…

This is indeed most likely the most comprehensive & diverse NYE “concert” list just about anywhere…and a work in progress that gets fatter everyday…

Last year I built a comprehensive list of NYE shows, and have been studiously working on this one daily for the intro to 2007….

So keep coming back until the big nite as we’ll keep ya posted with updates as we get em… and offer up a few sound samples of what sonic styles some of these performers will be playing at their gigs…

… while most shows I found are here in the ol’ USA, there’s a smattering of global entertainment offerings listed as well…

oh, and be sure to send in yer show in the comments if ya got one…

Just to be a jerk I tend to do the list in alphabetical order by 1st letter of 1st name, not by city, but by artist names,

So generally the first letter of the main or headlining act is listed first…

if ya wanna search around within your browser for your city or fave act Windows users dhould try using a CTRL F search and typing in the city, club or bandname…

It really gives ya a broad idea of what’s going down all over the globe, and where some of the best live music I could find out about is going off on New Year’s Eve…

Most of these are band shows, wityh some DJ stuff thrown in, but usually only if the DJ has released an album of original music, or some sort of musician with a side gig for the night ( as in cases of Chemical Bros, Good Charlotte, Kid Rock etc)
