Dropout Boogie at the Brick
Carnival costumes are encouraged at this Mardi Gras celebration, and guests are also promised delicious New Orleans fare and drink specials. Work off all those heavy calories by getting down to some presumably Big Easy-centric soul and funk 45s from the DJ dudes in the Dropout Boogie.
UPDATE: Ex-Cult has canceled. Bloodbirds and Lazy still playing. Cover now only $5.
Ex-Cult and Lazy at RecordBar
Over the past year and a half, local trio Bloodbirds has released a handful of EPs, the common denominator being a dark, psych-tinged post-punk sound. The group is led by Mike Tuley, who has brought the same unhinged quality to Bloodbirds that he did to his former group, Ad Astra Per Aspera. Bloodbirds' new LP, Psychic Surgery, is out online; the vinyl, which you can order at this show, will be available in April.
Monday, January 28, at the Granada, 7 p.m. doors.
A show by the aptly named group Murder By Death (murder ballads are its forte) isn't what jumps to mind for a New Year's Eve celebration. But the Bloomington, Indiana, quintet has cultivated a nice, bubbly fanbase in Lawrence. And local indie acts Cowboy Indian Bear and Y(our) Fri(end) ought to add a little life to the evening.
Monday, December 31, at the Granada, doors at 9 p.m., $12 in advance or $15 at the door.
The Golden Republic
Five years after splitting, the Golden Republic reunited for a couple of one-offs in 2011. The glammy pop-punk quartet does it again here with friends in Thee Water MoccaSins, who don't often play together, owing to geographic constraints.
Monday, December 31, at RecordBar, doors at 9 p.m., $12.
Nug Life New Year's Eve
You'll have to ignore the unbelievably terrible name, if you can, but this party has a lot of potential. I saw the reggae dudes in the New Riddim move some serious asses one random Friday night at Harling's earlier this year. And the 1990s-R&B-themed Booty Jamz is on the rise as one of Westport's best dance parties, even though it is totally biting the style of my on-hiatus DJ duo Pussy Monster. (Just kidding - Pussy Monster played only two shows, and nobody paid any attention.) Also on hand: DJ Clockwerk and Pocket Change.
Monday, December 31, at Riot Room, 8 p.m., $5.
See Quiet Corral's cover of Aloe Blacc's "I Need a Dollar" here.
Tuesday, December 25, at RecordBar, 9 p.m., $7.
Another very promising option is the end-of-the-year show at the Roost in the West Bottoms (1100 Santa Fe), featuring the Conquerors, the Devil, Snake Island and the Levitators. For a mere $5, it promises to be psychedelic and rowdy - and perhaps a good way to usher in all of those remaining days.
