What's Going On: 12/27, 12/28, 12/29, 12/30 & 12/31, 2018

There's a farewell party for this beautiful baby at The Saint tonight. Then, The Battery Electric play Bond St. for FREE on NYE with The Vansaders.

Bye Bye, 2018!

This is it. Another year over, as they say. It's been two straight years of shittiness here at CoolDad Music; but, just like every year, there were some high points, too. And, just like every year, I'm resolving to keep on keeping on and to make 2019 a better one. I hope all of your 2018 dreams came true; and I hope you have a wonderful, healthy, and productive 2019.

This weekend there are, obviously, tons of things to do. From free shows to shows with a ridiculous cover charge (that come with a free glass of Cook's or André!) to straight-up cover shows. Whatever you get up to, have fun; be safe; tell people you love them.

And, as always, I'm begging you. Do not drink or otherwise alter your consciousness and get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
