Since no one wants to spend another New Year's Eve at home, contemplating kissing their sister at midnight, we decided to talk to a series of local bands about their final performance of 2009. We'll have more of these posts all week long.
The DJ: DJ Anjali
The Show: The Woods' New Year's Eve Revel with DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid.
The Reason You Need to Be There: Pure dance party madness—Bollywood by way of Sellwood.
MERCURY: First off, will you be playing "Auld Lang Syne" during your New Year's Eve performance?
DJ ANJALI: Only if I can find a Bhangra version.
Any special plans for the show? Covers? Streamers? Those tiny popper things shaped like miniature champagne bottles?
A Bollywood disco lazer light show.
What are the odds that—come midnight—someone in your band will be available for kissing?
Hopefully we'll be kissing each other.
What is your worst New Year's Eve memory?
Either I'm blissfully unaware, or I just have a bad memory, but all of my New Year's Eve have been sublime.
