13 Must-Attend New Year's Eve 2013 Parties in Metro Phoenix
|DJ Sean Watson|
Sean Watson will be once again spend his Auld Lang Syne at the Crescent Ballroom as he plays the role of party instigator during his annual New Year's Eve Amateur Night. This time, however, it's going to be a much bigger party with a few new elements in the mix.
Local electronic rock band The Holy Coast will perform during the party and a separate disco tent will be set up outside of the Crescent and will be manned by DJ Dana and DJ Roach. Meanwhile, DJs such as Kris the Fist, 2ToneDisco, Deux Yeux, and Watson himself will spin inside. Visual artist Matt Castleberry will also serve up some snazzy video projections and other eye candy. The night gets going at 8:30 p.m. Admission is $3 in advance and $5 at the door.
New Line Cinema You might meet a Rollergirl or two on New Year's Eve at FilmBar.
Despite the fact that FilmBar's New Year's Eve event the Boogie Ball is inspired by Paul Thomas Anderson's renowned skin flick opus Boogie Nights, it's pretty certain that everyone will keep their gear on inside the indie movie house (we hope). That said, expect to run into a few wanna-be Roller Girls, Dirk Digglers, and Reed Rothchilds during the '70s porn star costume party.
A DJ will spin the super sounds of the '70s in FilmBar's lounge while various movie and music clips from the decade are screened in the theatre. Prizes will be awarded to the best costumes, and a champagne toast and video ball drop takes place at midnight. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $9.
