Conventional wisdom is that nobody parties hard on the first day of the New Year—you're supposed to be hungover at home eating black-eyed peas or something—but damn if this show isn't set to blow that myth wide open. Fuzz-punk duo Japanther positively inspire with sing-along anthems that collide punk aggression with goofy good fun. Champagne Champagne and They Live! deliver the locally grown party raps, (the grotesquely named) Hair Envelope bust out sassy, swervy indie-electro pop, and former Seattleite DJ Righteous Trash spins the jams. Y'all want the New Year started right? (Comet Tavern, 922 E Pike St, 322-9272. 9 pm, $10, 21+.)
