New Year's already?

Ok, it's the holiday season. Just give in to it. And if you are like me, you still don't know where you are spending Thanksgiving or Christmas. And if that isn't enough pressure, people are already talking about what they are doing on New Year's. But have no fear, I'm here to help. For those of you who live in LA, and dig those all night-dance party type gatherings, Giant is having their New Year's celebration at the Bonaventure Hotel and it will last for 48-hours. I'm not kidding. This party starts at 2pm on Dec 31st and goes until 2am the night of the Jan 2nd. I'm getting tired just thinking about it. The Bonaventure is HUGE. It has a 5000 capacity, with a rooftop garden that can hold 3000 people. Tickets go for $60-75 dollars (a steal for New Year's in LA), and the money actually goes to local charities so you can feel good about spending money to get wasted and dance for days because it's for a good cause. The DJ's performing is being kept under wraps, but you can expect the same kind of mega-stars like Paul van Dyk, Deep Dish, Sasha and Danny Howells who have performed for this celebration in the past.

For those of you about to rock, David Lee Roth will be performing at the House of Blues on Sunset on New Years. You can party like it's 1989.

PS: Juliette Lewis is performing at the Viper Room tomorrow night. I saw Juliette at this year's Coachella festival backstage drooling over the White Stripes and telling them how much she loved them. She must have seen Meg White's drumming skills and figured she could do that too. Great. Thanks Jack and Meg. Another actor with a band. And what ever happened to Jared Leto's 30 Seconds to Mars? Anyone who e-mails me with the latest on them earns an un-named prized. (a.k.a. office supplies).
