The options are endless for those seeking New Year’s Eve entertainment outside the house tomorrow. If you’re eager to forge ahead into what may be our very last year in style the Newseum has its annual Headliners Ball at 8. Believe it or not, a D.C. band called Round Midnight will help ring in 2012.

(Dec. 31) Last laughs of 2011 with Ralph Harris
To laugh at the looming Armageddon and the past twelve months you can head to DC Improv in Northwest Washington. Comedian, actor and Last Comic Standing competitor Ralph Harris keeps things bubbly.

(Dec. 31) The Seldom Scene
Bethesda’s own The Seldom Scene looks ahead and brings progressive bluegrass to Alexandria’s Birchmere.

(Dec. 31) Drive-By Booker Shakes
There’s country, soul, rock, and rhythm and blues all in once place tomorrow night. That place is Northwest’s 9:30 Club. Alt-country band Drive-By Truckers is joined by Booker T sans the M.G.’s, plus up and comers Alabama Shakes who threaten to steal the show with an unabashed alchemy of Southern sounds.
