Anyone else looking for some last minute plans for New Year’s Eve? If you don’t like the idea of standing in the freezing crowds, trying to catch a glimpse of the lights on the South Bank, maybe have a quick read of these and see if one takes your fancy? (Again, I’m sorry, this is very London-centric).

CLUB SILVER NEW YEARS EVE EXTRAVAGANZA

(Apparently) Camden’s best alternative NYE party! Mostly indie and alternative music, with a bit of cheese too. Tickets here.

The Old Blue Last, Shoreditch
PINK MIST NEW YEARS EVE HOUSEPARTY!
Sadly upstairs with Tubelord is sold out, but downstairs, ‘Whatever Happened To P-Rock’ will be playing punk rock tunes through the night with a bit of help from Team Wolf (Gallows), Beez (Last Resort / Scuzz TV) and more surprise guests. More info here.
If you’re not in London, or fancy a quiet night in, try a house party watching The Exorcist. (Always a good time)
