The "special guests" slated to accompany local happening hip-hop duo Eyedea & Abilities on New Year's Eve can really only mean a few things: Will it be Slug? No, he's, like, on tour in Tasmania or something. Brother Ali, too. Seems like a slam-dunk it'll be some other members of the Rhymesayers crew, but who knows? It's New Year's Eve. A Doomtree appearance? Hell, it could even be De La Soul or the Roots, couldn't it? Okay, maybe not, but it's going to be terrif at any rate. The Entry is as fine a choice as any for this NYE. No worrying about party-hopping, a limitless supply of those big bottles of beer, and E&A's part Eminem, part Ozomatli beats. Rhyme in 2009 with them, and several to many hundreds of others at the likely sold-out show, too. You'll probably know some of them. 18+.
