It's Happening Tonight!

QUASI+WHO=LUV—Bid farewell to 2009 as local legends Quasi take on rock legends the Who, in this sure-to-be-spectacular New Year's "Fir Ball." Quasi will do an entire set of Who covers, which will most likely include instrument smashing and guitar windmills for days. I heard the Jupiter Hotel is building a pool just so drummer Janet Weiss can drive a car into it. EAC
w/the Shaky Hands, Inside Voices, DJ Safi; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $13-15

DEVILS—There's a lot of competition tonight, but the fact that the legendary Murder City Devils play, like, once every year (or five) makes a pretty compelling argument for spending the last hours of '09 basking in their creepily keyboarded brand of decadent devastation. Plus: Jello Biafra! MS
w/Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, My Life in Black and White; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 9 pm, $30-55

ASS-SHAKIN'—The massively popular '80s Video Dance Attack comes to the Wonder Ballroom for a New Year's celebration that's sure to inspire sweat stains. VJ Kittyrox presents the most dance-tastic videos and music from the 1980s, and with a $7 price point? That's a fun way of ringing in 2010 on the cheap! WSH
Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 9 pm, $7


Get yer last minute New Year's plans on here! (And there's even more busy fun to come!)
