When faced with an all-ages crowd, rapper Astronautalis (pictured) told City Pages, "I'll try to tone down the cursing and the whiskey and keep things PG-13." There are no such limitations for New Year's Eve at the Triple Rock. It's an 18+ affair, so a full-on, ribald burst into 2013 should be expected. Whether Astro is swigging Redbreast, punching the air with his tattooed hands, scorching through This Is Our Science, or freestyling his face off, this is the guy you want leading the party. Unless, of course, you can also jam with the twisted pop stylings of Har Mar Superstar in the same sweat-inducing swoop. Better wear some killer undies for his set in case you're hit with the uncontrollable urge to disrobe. With the Chalice. 18+.
