Epic Red Cup Massive

Got any big plans for New Year's Eve? The party monsters of Warsaw Pact Entertainment most definitely do, as they'll celebrate the coming of 2012 during the Epic Red Cup Massive New Year's Eve Extravaganza on Saturday, December 31. Taking place at an undisclosed location in the Valley, the all-night event is expected to be such a rager that other Auld Lang Syne affairs may seem tame by comparison. "Why party with amateurs in a crowded bar until only 2 a.m. when you can spend the whole night with us?" states the event's Facebook page. An inferno of art, electronic music, and fire-dancing will take place as attendees bump their humps long after most other revelers have called it a night. Ambient grooves and energetic beats will be laid down by such DJs and producers as Brandon DeCarlo, Time Drifters, Freightrain, Franck Matthews, and Wav4rmv. (An after-party kicks off at 6 a.m. the following morning and will keep going until everyone drops.) Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $40 for singles, $70 for couples.
