Instead of the same old crowded bars and clubs where you spend more time waiting to get in than having fun, ring in the New Year with lots of laughs at this stand-up comedy extravaganza hosted by Pete Holmes, voice of the E*TRADE baby and frequent guest on Best Week Ever. The outstanding lineup includes sets from Chelsea Lately panelist Natasha Leggero, reality show host and party animal Bert Kreischer (who claims to be the inspiration for the movie Van Wilder), Super High Me star Doug Benson, Punchline's 2010 "Comic to Watch" Moshe Kasher and master of improvisational comedy Rory Scovel. The evening also includes music by Imaginary Radio, which combines live-looped songs with sketch comedy from the twisted imagination of Drennon Davis. Learn More

Caetano Veloso was wonderful, like a Brazilian hobbit bouncing around while his miraculous voice soothed, then soared.
But the venue is the worst godawful place to get to, to be in, or to hear music in the entire city. Clear Channel wants to turn it into a rock venue, let them and anybody who'd go to anything they sponsor have it. Horrible architecture, $30 to park. I'd forgotten just how bad. And did I mention it is a lousy place for music?

Brazil’s reigning artistic genius, Caetano Veloso places global pop, jazz and folk styles into a prism and conjures music that is uniquely his own. Blessed with an otherworldly voice and an Ellingtonian understanding of harmonic color, Veloso co-led the bossa nova and Tropicália movements of the late 1960s and has since taken on everything from funky samba workouts to ethereal balladry and orchestral pieces. With 2007’s Nonesuch release, Cê, Veloso used jittery indie rock in order to process the intense emotions surrounding his divorce and the resulting masterwork led to two Latin Grammy Awards. He continues to expand this edgier vision with the 2009 album Zii e Zie. At 67, Veloso’s influence across musical genres and geographic borders has been vast, yet his riveting concert appearances remain the most important aspect of a legacy still in progress.
