Most holidays, the Ramblers celebrate on their own. This year, we're inviting you to join our party.
We'll be back at one of our favorite venues, the Taipei Artist Village. By now, you know the place from earlier posts, so it hardly seems necessary to remind you that it's at No. 7 Beiping Road. near the Shantao Temple MRT Station.
This event is being billed as a black-tie affair, and yes, the Ramblers will be turned out in their finest, but we always are. This black and white party will be a chance for the audience to dress to impress us, instead of the other way around.
The show kicks off at 10 and will go until the wee hours. I expect there will be a countdown to midnight.
We've invited a few guest artists to join us if they can, but you'll have to show up at the gig to find out who they are. If you've got a reasonable excuse for seeing in the New Year somewhere other than at TAV, well then I suppose you could check back here for the post-party wrap up in a few days.
We'd much rather you came down and celebrated the New Year with us. 2012 has received some bad press in the past, but the latest forecast is no doomsday for at least a couple more years.
We didn't get around to making a poster for this affair, but here's a photo of the Ramblers getting ready for our show last year at the Flower Expo.
That's the state of mind we're in right now. Getting ready for a big show. Looking forward to seeing you at TAV on Saturday, December 31, at 10 PM.
