The Weekend Party Tipsy Sheet: a round-up of weekly parties and New Year's Eve celebrations
You can't possibly be partied out! The fun really starts this weekend, where all sorts of people will come together in cheap champagne and party favor glory. If you're into getting the celebrations started early minus the shenanigans, we've got a line-up of album release parties, end of year live hip-hop performances, and weekly reggae parties. If you're looking for rowdy antics, we've got that, too. Party over here, party over there.
More live performance hip-hop swaggery brought to you by Lokon and Spellbinder for the release of their long awaited collaboration album Unity Iz Strength. The two have come together for a genre blending release party that will feature performances by Bianca Mikahn along with deejay sounds by Bigg Chris. No cover, 21 and over.
Africana Café will host its weekly reggae soiree dubbed "Fiyah Fridays." As usual, Caribbean beats, African sounds, and world music are promised to all who grace the dance floor. DJ Stero Lion and E Money will be on hand to keep the tunes blazing.
The ever motivated MC Anxious will be rocking his last show of the year tonight at Herman's Hideaway. Tickets are $10 at the door and there will be hip-hop and $3.25 Coors Light specials. A very hip-hop way to ease into the New Year's Eve festivities.
