Ring In the New Year Right! Our Recommended New Year’s Events

Now that you’ve all recovered from the holiday madness of last weekend, it’s time to start planning for your New Year’s Eve. We scoured our list of New Year’s events and picked out some choice events that aren’t sold out and are sure to appeal to a large variety of tastes. We got plenty of burlesque and cabaret, tons of music events featuring everything from electronic, reggae and hip hop to punk rock, metal and polka, a few food events, a healthy smattering of comedy and one event that describes itself as “a post-apocalyptic disco fantasy at the end of the world.” We started as far west as we could go (Kealakekua, Hawaii) and headed all the way to the Big Apple. So, no matter where you call home, there should be something relatively close to you.

This is by no means a complete list of New Years events that we’re ticketing. You can find our complete list of events here and browse the THIRTEEN pages of events.

Not planning on going out? Got your own New Year’s tradition that doesn’t involve battling crowds of drunken revellers? Let us know what your tradition is in the comments section!

But, for those of you that have to get out of the house and party, here’s our picks. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Two Legendary Punk Bands Hit the West Coast!

Many of us here at Brown Paper Tickets came up in the punk rock scene. The sense of community and DIY aspects of the punk scene still ring true in many of our company policies and you can often wander by any given desk here in our offices and hear punk music coming out of the computer speakers, see punk fliers on office walls and of course, catch many of our employees sporting a t-shirt of their favorite punk band.

So, while I was perusing upcoming events that we are ticketing, I was thrilled to see that we’re ticketing shows by two punk rock legends, UK street-punk band The Business and Northwest hardcore legends Poison Idea. Read the rest of this entry »
