It's no secret that First Avenue's reputation as the place to dance in Minneapolis has taken a huge hit in the last year, heralded among other things by weekly 18+ standby Too Much Love moving into hospice care in the Record Room upstairs. But though the recurring dance nights have dwindled, there's no doubt First Ave knows how to throw one hell of a special-event rager, and how much more special or rage-ier can you get than New Years Eve? Bump and grind experts Get Cryphy will be in attendance, as well as Roy Freedom & DJ Smitty, Y2KML, Night Moves, and Pony Bwoy. DJ Sovietpanda will be holding things down in the Record Room in case things get too intense in the Mainroom, and the whole shebang's hosted by Ian Rans who, given that he's the host of Drinking with Ian, is a highly appropriate dude to MC a boozefest. 18+.
