Vendetta New Year's Eve
LADEAD and Swingtronic blast off at their seventh prohibition-era party and “murder” on the dance floor is promised. Vintage vinyl jazz and cocktails kick off the evening, followed by the dark and decadent sounds of Xian Vox and Professor Watson until late. Midnight toast and balloon drop, host Rev. Jeffrey Damnit, champagne, photo booth, a blackjack speakeasy and more macabre madness. Dress code: mobsters, (gothy) goodfellas, (fetishy) flappers, (dark) dappers, burlesque babes, or formal black and white attire, are all recommended. At the Monte Cristo, 3100 Wilshire Blvd., Koreatown, 9 p.m.-3 a.m., $10-$20 with RSVP, $30 general admission, www.facebook.com/ladead.
