Taipei City Hall

City Hall's annual New Year's shindig actually begins tonight, when the city government flips the switch for thousands of lights installed along Renai Road. The party starts in earnest at 6:30pm on New Year's Eve for a concert given by some of Taiwan's top pop talent as well as shows by various dance and performance groups. The real fun comes when Mayor Ma and Taipei City councilors take the stage to countdown the new year.

The Wall

Here's where the cool kids will be. The party starts at 9pm with electronic jazz and funk fusion band KbN, followed by hip hop acts MC Insatiable and MC Rampant. Last of the live bands will be reggae funk-rock sensation, Smoking Cones. After that, DJs SL, K Fancy, Em Lee and Saucy will serve up the platters into the first six hours of the new year. Party organizers promise fire spinners, masseuses and lots of funky fun. NT$800 advance tickets are available at The Wall and at Citizen Cane. Tickets will cost NT$1,000 at the door. B1, 57 Tunhua S. Rd. Sec. 1, Taipei (北市敦化南路57號B1).
