Hot on the heels of this weekend's wildly successful hat trick of Doomtree Blowout shows in the Mainroom, the Aster Cafe has announced a very cool New Year's Eve show in their limited-capacity space with Dessa. As we wrote about last month, the Aster has recently been revamped as an intimate "listening room" style music venue, and it should be a great fit for Dessa's jazzy, swanky experimental pop jams.
[jump] Because of the small number of tickets available, the Aster is asking fans to reserve their spots online in advance, and opened up a special reservation number this morning (612-460-5163). Seated reservations are $75 and include a three-course meal and complimentary champagne, and a very limited amount of standing-room-only $20 reservations are also available.
Dessa will be joined by her band and singer Aby Wolf, and they will play two separate sets that evening.
The Aster passed along their menu for the evening for those looking for more info:

In other post-blowout Dessa news, the Doomtree emcee and solo artist has also been added to Wednesday night's 40th anniversary bash at First Avenue, along with a wide variety of guests that include Grant Hart, Gary Louris, Heiruspecs, Har Mar Superstar, and many more.
