We survived the apocalypse so get ready to ring in 2013 with WFPK 91.9's Annual New Year's Eve Bash and Broadcast! The party is on New Year's Eve, December 31st, at 9 p.m. with doors open at 8 p.m. at Headliners Music Hall. The evening will be full of great music, dancing, picture taking, a balloon drop, and New Year's cheer. Last year tickets sold out, so if you don't have your tickets yet I would suggest getting them now or in person at Louisville Public Media located at 619 South Fourth Street. Tickets are a steal at $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Other similar parties can cost anywhere from $14 to $160 a person. For ticket information call (502)814-6500. This is an 18 and over event.
The schedule of events:
8:00pm – Free dance lesson from the Louisville Swing Dance Society
9:00pm – Broadcast begins with WFPK’s Woodrow on the Radio and DJ Matt Anthony
10:30pm – The Ladybirds with a special premiere of their new video “She’s Alright” before their set.
Midnight – Balloon Drop and DJ's second set.
The Ladybirds is a fun five piece rockabilly dance band whose sound is influenced by music from 1954-1973. If you like The Sonics, Wanda Jackson, The Shangri-las, The New York Dolls, The Beach Boys, The Flamin Groovies, The Ventures, Joe Meek, and/or Phil Spector you will love The Ladybirds.
There will be a photo booth available throughout the night for your photo taking needs. Take all the photo mementos you want because they are free with admission.
