There's a front part with a different name and a back part that has a patio and various shitty bar bands or DJs (I've played there a couple times)
I saw Fuck Buttons at Detroit Bar a few weeks ago and it was the one of the most depressing things I've attended. There were, maybe, 14 people there total? 20 max. At one point it smelled weird - then I found out the girl working the bar singed her hair from one of the candles on the bar. The whole thing was especially sad when remembering how cool Detroit Bar used to be. I remember seeing Girls there right after Album was released w/ Hunx & His Punx opening and it was such a party... packed out the door. Good Times.
Too bad they couldn't get Golden Bear going. I guess it was like a landmark of HB from the 60's and 70's that booked all kinds of classic shit. Would've been cool to get some respectable acts there to thin out the douchiness on Main Street. Maybe it's for the better.

Capital Cities on NYE @ Observatory.
On the fence.... I HATE "Safe and Sound". I'm listening to the rest of the album and it's tolerable so far.
I'm thinking that if I drank enough the band or price shouldn't dampen the night.
There's a handful of nightclub that would be cheaper, but my friends aren't into that scene.
Unless I find something through Couchsurfing, I'm afraid I don't have alternatives.
Anything OC for NYE seems pretty barfy.
