NYE is my last 80's Dance Night

New Year's Eve this year is going to be a special one for me as it will be my last 80's Dance Night. I've been playing new wave at Hailey's every Thursday for the last six years, and it's all coming to an end on December 31st 2009.

The club will be opening early (8pm) to accomodate the three bands I personally booked to play with me on NYE: Vulgar Fashion from Denton, Twisted Wires [Italians Do It Better] from Houston, and Orvahnt's Engine (formerly known as Plastic Sleeves) [Down Low/Bunker Records] from Dallas. All three of these bands are really excellent electronic acts that will compliment what I do on 80's Dance Night. Visuals will be provided by Tommyboy [Arawa.FM].

There will be free champagne at midnight and a photobooth in the back room. Doors are at 8pm, the schedule is below:
8pm- DJG
9pm- Vulgar Fashion
10pm- Twisted Wires
11pm- Orvahnt's Engine
12am- countdown and DJG
I will be doing my 80's Night thing before, between, and after the sets. There is a $3 cover before midnight which will go directly to the bands (one of which is driving in from Houston and taking a pretty large paycut to play this show). I recommend getting there early so you don't miss out on any of these great bands, I can't say enough how solid the music is going to be. There will be no cover after midnight for those who only want to come and dance.

...So the next day I had set out to write down all the songs I remember playing. Here's how it all went down, in the order it all happened:
