Roaring '20s NYE at Transit With ¡Mayday! and ArtOfficial Tonight
You've seen Boardwalk Empire, right? Well, if you've watched bug-eyed Steve Buscemi partying it up in the prohibition era and thought, "That's my kind of party," then Transit Lounge's shindig is the place for you. Because the Little Havana hangout is bringing back the roaring '20s tonight.
And a way-cool theme party isn't all that Transit's offering. There's also going to be live music by two of Miami's premier hip-hop acts: ArtOfficial and ¡Mayday!.
"We decided to get together with Transit Lounge and our homies, ArtOfficial," says ¡Mayday!'s Bernz. "To give the people a live music option for NYE ... Something a bit more organic than the ol' run-of-the-mill, overpriced-drinks type parties that plague this city."
"That," he admits, "and we needed a good place to get shitfaced for the New Year!"
Don't we all? But the lineup is awesome enough alone, and what better way to celebrate New Year debauchery than with these two titans of Miami's local scene? ArtOfficial's live, jazzy hip-hop jams are a sure bet for an evening of imbibing and bad decisions. And ¡Mayday! ... Well, what more can you say? You don't get to work with Cee-lo Green and end up on Entourage's soundtrack by being just a'ight.
"We're suckers for a nostalgic type of holiday like New Year's Eve," says Bernz. "It pulls at the sentimental artist in all of us."
"Sure, it's a time to party with loved ones," he goes on to say. "But it's also a time of reflection, sweet champagne fueled reflection ... The best kind of reflection, if you ask me."
¡Mayday! and ArtOfficial as part of the Roaring '20s NYE Party. Friday, December 31. Transit Lounge, 729 SW 1 Ave., Miami. The countdown kicks off at 10 p.m. and admission costs $10, a midnight champagne toast included. RSVP via maydayonline.com.
