Hello all,

Enough brilliant and oddly eclectic happenings tonight to ring in .05
in London, L.A., New York, and Chicago that I thought I'd send out a
special note. I'll be pining for the fact that I can't be in NYC to see
the god Joe Bataan in a super-rare Afro-Cuban set @ Tonic with Los
Cubanos Postizos (or @ S.O.B.'s for Amel Larrieux and Eric Roberson),
or in London for Saint Etienne's spectacular. Stuck in L.A. where the
selection isn't so much brilliant as bizarre, and though I'd love to
see Flora and Airto, I can't see spending in NYE in the valley (but of
course it's highly recommended). Also odd but inviting is an also
ultra-rare DJ set from the lovely and long-absent Justin Warfield @
Spaceland, and there are plenty of opportunities tonight to see some of
the best local DJ talent @ Zen, Firecracker and elsewhere. Of course,
the London selection is ridiculous (see below but here's a few: JTQ,
Heller + Farley w/ Maurice Fulton, Phil Asher + Patrick Forge, Ben
Watt, Spiritual South, Earl Zinger, and Plaid + Squarepusher). Not much
in Chicago apart from the great Andy Bey, but that alone is worth a
        Whatever you get up to, hope you all have a lovely New Year, and best
in .05.

All the best,

Brian Baltin
