PLAN A: Transfer, Rafter, Shapes of Future Frames, Low Volts @ The Casbah. There will be some seriously good juju in the air at this New Year’s Eve blowout. Local alt-rock heavyweights Transfer had a great 2010—they toured the U.K. with Brandon Flowers of The Killers and just got back from a successful East Coast tour—and I get the impression that they’ll have an even better 2011. As for Rafter, check out my feature in this week's issue to see why his latest record, Animal Feelings, served as the perfect antidote to the recession grind. PLAN B: The Zeros, New Mexico, The Dabbers, Gun Runner @ Eleven. Chula Vista punk legends The Zeros are still going strong more than 30 years into their career, but it’s New Mexico you should keep an eye on in 2011 (again, see my feature). PLAN C: Lights On, Dudes, D/Wolves, The New Kinetics, DJ Ryan Hand @ Tin Can Ale House. If you don’t have any money (join the club), drop by this working-class-themed party: There’s no cover, a free champagne toast and a solid lineup. PLAN D: Crocodiles, Heavy Hawaii, Raw Moans, Mrs. Magician @ Soda Bar. A song like Crocodiles’ “I Wanna Kill” doesn’t exactly make the ideal soundtrack for a New Year’s Eve party, but Heavy Hawaii and Raw Moans are great new bands. BACKUP PLAN: Consider one of these picks if none of the above suit you. And if you're still not satisfied, peruse our New Years Eve Guide.
