Whether 2011 was an amazing year for you, or sucked some serious balls — I think we can all agree that we’re ready for 2012. Why not close your year out with a bang!? Check out our custom show list for cool New Year’s Eve events to attend in or around Los Angeles. We’re not very into the douchey Hollywood club scene, so if you’re looking for shit like that, this probably isn’t the best list for you.

Please don’t drink and drive! Cab it up, take the bus, subway, walk and/or get a DD!
