You're not seriously considering "taking it easy" on New Year's Eve, are you? Kicking back in your favorite sweatpants with a coupla brewskis, watching the party rage in the streets of New York on the TV? What the hell is wrong with you? No! This year you're going out! You're gonna ring in the New Year with the Rolling Frickin' Stones. No, not THOSE Rolling Stones—the official cover band that plays the songs better than the original (and by "better" I mean "rowdier"). I promise you will dance! And you should go early for openers Country Lips and Pony Time! (Tractor Tavern, 5213 Ballard Ave NW,, 9 pm, $20, 21+)
