It's time to send 2013 out in style.

If you didn't get in as much celebrating and carousing as you'd hoped during 2013, you've got only a few more chances to do so -- including the biggest party night of 'em all, New Year's Eve. And there's no shortage of places to do so, as every single bar, club, drinkery, and nightspot in metro Phoenix will send off 2013 with a bang on Tuesday, December 31. (For proof, look no further than our exhaustive New Year's Eve guide.)

Naturally, some New Year's Eve fiestas stand out from the rest, such as the bakers dozen of dance events, posh parties, and themed shindigs around the Valley that are worth checking out.

In case you haven't heard, the Compound in Tempe (sadly) won't be putting on its annual Maybe [Insert New Year] Will Be Better party this year for the first time in ages. The New Year's Eve Flannel Ball and Art Show at both Lawn Gnome and the 909 Housing Collective is a perfectly acceptable alternative that will offer a similar mix of art and music.

Bands like Andy Warpigs, Bacchus, Sister Lip, and Wolvves will perform at the '90s-themed event and more than 15 artists will exhibit works, including Dawn O'Doul, Tato Caraveo, Sierra Joy, Morgan McNally, Aaron Hopkins-Johnson, Casebeer, and J.J. Horner. The revelry starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $10.

That is the lamest looking bunch of shit I have ever seen. It's almost ALL DJ's.

The NYE at Valley Ho was horrible last year. The food was hot dogs, drinks took 20 minutes, broken glass on the floor was left unattended, and negative attitudes from all the typical scottsdale personalities. Stay away, not worth price...
