New Years Eve(nts)

Originally published on

Okay, so you should be come to our wonderful New Year’s Eve party RUMSPRINGA because haven’t we always wanted to take more than one sip of wine in a church while watching religious-themed go-go dancers and taking a tater tot communion? I think I just converted.


If you can’t make this party (honestly, how can you not? just look at that venue above) try these other shit shows on for size.


  • Musiq Soulchild @ Howard Theatre – Kinda surprised this one isn’t sold-out. The tickets are more than reasonable, the performer is quality and the Trillectro after-party ensures a party. You may want to buy these ASAP.
  • Dr. John and Wanda Jackson with Toy Soldiers @ The Hamilton – It’s impossible for a DC-based site to recommend Dr. John without mentioning Patton Oswalt’s bit about Arch Campbell. Now that that’s out of the way, Wanda Jackson is the rockabilly queen, Elvis girlfriend, Jack White’s collaborator and still a must-see.


  • Jack Rose New Year’s Bash – Our favorite Adams Morgan bar has an early dinner event and a late open bar. $125 for an open bar seems like a high price, and it is, but $125 for a Jack Rose open bar is a very fair price.

  • Hyatt Regency Masquerade Ball– Masks and dancing and former Bachelor star Chris Bukowski. Yikes, hope that last name doesn’t mean he’s a womanizing alcoholic. Here’s a nice Chuck Bukowski quote to get us in the mood: “We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.” Fun!



  • Professionals in the City New Year’s Eve GalaGet on your suit and tie, memorize those J. Timberlake songs because it’s about to get Profesh to Def up in DC…which is a new thing for The District. This party also includes speed dating which I hope means all dates have to stay above 50 mph.


  • NYE with The PJ Men @ Woolly Mammoth– Woolly Mammoth Theatre does it right and while they suggest you wear something bright colored I believe the name indicates we should all wear pajamas. Done.

Have a Happy New Year’s Skeeve you guys!
