Trance dance into the new year with a band that plays smoothed-out electronica jams and is known for putting on a tremendous live show. Dopapod opens, laying down intricate funk grooves.

Cost: $25-$30

When: 8 p.m.

Where: 708 E. Broad St., Richmond

Info: 804/612-1900; thenationalva.com

THE TRANSMITTERS AT THE OTTER HOUSE

Music is, perhaps, the best way to keep your party vibe activated, and there is no better band in Fredericksburg than rock steady revivalists The Transmitters.

Cost: $10

When: 10 p.m.

Where: 1005 Princess Anne St., Fredericksburg

Info: 540/656-2969; theotterhouse.com

THE SELDOM SCENE AT THE BIRCHMERE

It won't keep you rocking all night long, but if you're looking for some great music and a laid-back vibe, here's the legendary bluegrass band with Fredericksburg ties. Not only that, but my personal favorite band, The Hot Seats, will also be playing.

Cost: $39.50

When: 8 p.m.

Where: 3701 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria

Info: 703/549-7500; birchmere.com

FRANKENFÜT AT THE COLONIAL TAVERN

Want to stay a little closer to home, but still want to party like a rock star? Check out hard rock locals Frankenfüt (former members of She Bites Dogs and Crank-spanker) and indie-rockers The Idiomatics at a great downtown music venue. Not bad at all.

Cost: $5

When: 10 p.m.

Where: 406 Lafayette Blvd., Fredericksburg

Info: 540/373-1313; irishbrigadetavern.com

DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS AT THE 9:30 CLUB

This has become a bit of a tradition, and it's one that most any rock fan should get on board with. Perhaps the best live band working today playing in one of the greatest clubs in the country--it's a combo that ensures memorable moments. With the North Mississippi All Stars Duo opening.

Cost: $55

When: 7 p.m.

Where: 815 V St. N.W., Washington, D.C.

Info: 202/265-0930; 930.com
