Gigs of The Week: NYE Special

28 December 2012, 18:40 | Written by The Line of Best Fit


Ahh New Years Eve, you fickle creature, how we often loathe you. The fuss, the organisation and anticipation of your coming often ends in mediocracy or crushing disappointment. It’s not your fault though, we generally expect too much of you. You don’t own the rights to being the best night of the year, any random “quiet” night at the pub could well take that crown so this year we’ll endeavour to treat you like any other night out. This isn’t completely possible though because you undeniably bring line-ups and parties like no other, so with that in mind, we decided to round-up the best bets for avoiding all of the negative things that you bring. Welcome to our New Years Eve gig guide special…

The Line of Best Fit, Rockfeedback, Paradyse, Trangressive and Double Denim Present: Towns & Wolf Alice @ The Social, London

If a New Years Eve love-in sounds like your kind of thing then look no further than The Social. We’ve teamed up with our pals at Transgressive and Double Denim to bring you a night of incredible live music from Bristol’s Towns and current favourites Wolf Alice alongside the expert DJ skills of Co-Op, ParadYse, Theme Park and our very own editorial team.
