New Year's Eve?

Last year we celebrated the new year at our local traffic circle with about 6 dozen or so of our neighbors, but the random bursts of automatic weapons fire all around us convinced me that i don't want to do that again.

So, Pinhook to see the Wusses, or Broad Street Cafe to see "Cool" John Ferguson and the rest of the Music Maker crowd? Anyone know what the ticket situation is at Pinhook?

  • well, i do believe BSC is something like $20, if its not sold out already (which I actually think it might be).

    pinhook is likely to just be the membership....

    and all of what, 1.5 traffic-free miles away?

    hell, i think i know where i'm going...

  • $5 cover + your membership fee at the pinhook. Th DJ line-up is damn good.

  • We're already Pinhook members, so that part's covered. Talked to Kym at the bar last night and she didn't say anything about a cover tonight, just to get there early enough before the place fills up.

  • Pinhook was an absolute zoo last night. i'm working on a post about the experience.

    weird thing is 3 weeks ago when we went to the "official grand opening" party, they wouldn't let us in because the place was full. it got a lot more crowded last night, but they kept packing 'em in, well past the point at which i felt safe. so we left around 11:30 or so. i was glad not to read about any problems in the news this morning.

  • Yeah, we bailed out of the 'hook at about 11:45. I'm glad they're doing so well, but that kind of crowd just isn't my thing.

    Bull McCabe's was pleasantly crowded, and friendly (as always) to boot.

  • It very much cleared out after midnight...prior to that, yes, there were too many people inside.

    The DJs were so much better than the band. I wish they had been on before midnight.

  • the band didn't come on till 11:10 or so, and the dj prior to that was fine.

    i still need to relate how the security guard at the door was unconcerned with whether or not the venue was at capacity, but boy did he freak out when Mrs. D tired to use the men's room to pee, seeing how the women's room was inaccessible.

  • the djs sucked ass. ge-ne-ric!!!

  • The Music Maker blues fest at Broad Street New Year's Eve appeared to be a resounding success--and very crowded.

    We got in some Capt. Luke (97 years young!) and checked out part of a set with Cool John Ferguson and decided to head back to a less-claustrophobic house party.

    $20 a head is a good donation to the cause, I guess!

    I do like the "new" (to me) bar set-up at Broad and I must say the appe-teasers were quite good. Excellent beers on tap, I had a Triangle's Pale for the road.
