Let’s kick 2016’s ass. It has been the worst.

Lou Years Eve

If you’re bringing the family out with you, this inaugural event will be perfect.

New Year’s Even 2017 with Tony  & The Tan Lines, DJ K-Dogg

We’ve heard glorious things about this all inclusive event at Mellwood. It is impossible not to have fun with Tony & The Tan Lines, plus unlimited food and booze. Doi.

2016, Ya Fired! (for the Kentucky ACLU)

If you need a lower key deal and are interested in a free bourbon toast, The Silver Dollar is your go to. JP Source will be delivering the music for the evening, and proceeds will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky.

New Year’s Eve at The Ton

Some of 2016’s hottest Louisville artists are on this bill. The Ton has developed a following and considering these good times are free, we bet it will be packed!

Tiki Surf Party on New Year’s Eve, Featuring Jaxon Lee Swain and Inertia

Headliners certainly knows how to host a party.

Fuck 2016! NYE with Glittertitz, Reaper Radio, Brenda DJs, and More!

I think most people agree with this sentiment. The White Reaper dudes and Brenda peeps will provide the soundtrack, plus the famous Glittertitz experience, it’ll be lit. (GET IT, THE FIRE? LOL)

Blackberry Smoke- Like An Arrow Tour

The Palace hosts this Forecastle alum. Welcoming in the New Year at the stunning Palace is sure to bring good luck in 2017.

NYE 2016 at Galaxie – Silent Disco

$3 champagne, no cover, and a silent disco. Plus the usuals… spicy margs and wakatakas.

Ceci n’est pas New Years

This Coat Check event looks solid. We haven’t seen Discount Guns or Bonez in a minute, and Sam Sneed always provides the tunes we need, so this will be a winning choice for sure.

Sunday (1/1) – 

If New Years Day isn’t synonymous with brunch, then you are doing it wrong. Hit one of the multiple delish brunch spots, many of which are openly promoting wearing your pajamas. Perfection.
