Celebrate Good Times in Boulder County and Denver!

If you didn't get tickets to the sold out New Year's Eve Gala at the Hotel Boulderado, or to Leftover Salmon at the Boulder Theater, don't panic! There are lots of GREAT New Year's Eve events in Boulder County and Denver, tonight. Here's our quick run-down.

As Boulder sadly says goodbye to one of the best venues in Boulder, the b.side lounge, the b.siders have turned it into a reason to celebrate all the good times and ring in the New Year. Join COMMUNIKEY featuring Vancouver's NOAH PRED (Native State, Thoughtless) and DJs Royals, Papyrus, Josh23, Brandon Brown and Story for what should be the dance party of the evening. "Crazy drink specials! Body pounding music, intelligent beats, and LOVE LOVE LOVE." 9pm. $15 includes access to the entire building. 2017 13th St., Boulder.

New Year's Eve at the Lobby - James Bond Style. Don your slinky red dress and button up your tux when The Way Down Low rocks Denver for a night of 007 fun. Come dressed as your favorite Bond, Bond Girl, Villain, or Bond inspired character for "Shaken, not Stirred," and catch this up-and-rising Denver band – a breath of fresh air in the Denver music scene. 7pm. Tix from $10-$50. 2191 Arapahoe St., Denver.

New Year's Eve "Silver Screen Ball" at BMoCA. Celebrate art and music Boulder-style, and help support BMoCA as well as One World Running. Wear your best black, white and silver cocktail attire (red accepted, as well) and enjoy video art installations, jazz-influenced soundtrack by DJ Josh Haimes & DJCJ, live music by Fellow Citizens, and's Red Lounge with neo-noir cinema, drinks and comfy chairs. 9pm. Tickets $20 in advance, $25 at the door. 1750 13th St., Boulder.

For those of you who love nothing better than a good Broadway Musical, ring in the New Year in style with the lovable classic "Singin' in the Rain" at Boulder's Dinner Theatre. Tonight's special event includes not only a show and dinner, but is followed by an evening of dancing and a champagne toast at midnight. 5:30pm. Tix starting at $80/person. 5501 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder.

Many Boulder restaurants are hosting their own special evenings, including DaGabi Cucina in North Boulder. Join Noah Westby and his extraordinary staff for live music with Wonderlic, dancing and of course, a midnight toast. Last dinner seating is at 8pm; live music starts at 10pm and runs until 1am. 3970 North Broadway #101, Boulder.

Events are also planned at CBC Drafthouse, Johnny's Cigar Bar, the Fox Theater and more! Visit our Calendar page for a complete listing, with more events coming in throughout the day.

And from all of us at Brock Media, have a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!
