Another holiday weekend has come and gone and the year is about to come to a close. It's time to start solidifying plans to celebrate the oncoming of a brand new year. What better way to ring in the new year than with a music event? As usual, there is are many options to do so here in Denver, which makes it a bit difficult to choose just one. You could check out Gauntlet Hair at the Larimer Lounge if you are into indie rock. If you are into funk, there is Dumpstaphunk/Orgone at Cervantes' or Bop Skizzum at Moe's Original. If you are into electronic dance music (EDM) and want to dance into the new year, there are a host of options for that as well, which is why I'll be heading to City Hall.

There are a number of EDM based events for New Year's Eve, but most seem to have a connection to a certain sub-genre that pervasively took the EDM world by storm especially over the past year - dubstep. Now, if you are into dubstep, that's fine. Personally, I think the genre has become a bit over-saturated, so I was happy to see that Denver's own boyhollow was presenting a New Year's Eve non-dubstep party.

The night will be headlined with a DJ set from Reuben Wu, one of the members of the English electropop band Ladytron. He will be joined by Denver locals London Dungeon, Shannon von Kelly and of course boyhollow. Together they will be mixing indie, electro, '80s, rock, house and more, so although EDM will be prevalent it will not be strictly electronic dance music. It'll be the perfect party full of variety for those with a multitude of music tastes, and a great way to ring in the new year.

Tickets start at $20 and will be higher the night of the show, so get your tickets early and save! The show is 18+ and it begins at 9:00PM. You can purchase tickets online here.
