The folks at Electric Western Records are probably best known as the makers of The 5 Spot's Monday night dance party, Keep On Movin’. Following a sold-out first year, the festive Keep On Movin' spirit will go Gatsby-style for EWR's second annual Swingin’ 1920s New Year's Celebration. Twenty-five bucks buys a ticket into The 5 Spot, which will be all dolled up prohibition era-style, for an evening of champagne, cigars and cocktails. An old-time photo booth will be set up for everyone's photo-boothing pleasure, and Chubby & the Dots will again be tuning up for the new year. Garb from the era is strongly encouraged, so if flapper dresses and pomade appeal to you, this is likely to be your best New Year's Eve option.
