End of Days Party: Little Beard, Deaf Poets, the Apocalypse at Grand Central Miami

Y2K didn't screw us. And that kooky Christian group was wrong about May 21, 2011, which came and went sans apocalyptic incident.
The third time, however, is always a charm. And the world is almost certainly going to end on December 21 -- the date the Mayans predicted would be our last.
But rather than prepping for doomsday by loading up on guns and non-perishables or repenting and reading scripture in a fallout shelter, may we suggest a one-hour open bar and live, local music at Grand Central's End of Days party?
New Times' 2011 Best Live Music Venue winner is embracing the imminent demise of Planet Earth and live-scoring it with some homegrown indie-pop (Little Beard), garage punk (Deaf Poets), nu-wave (Eons), Hialeah-bred shoegaze (Planelifter), and a couple of DJs (Tommy Gun and Benton).

By now, you've almost certainly heard and likely fallen in love with Little Beard.
"We're so unconventional and horrible at promoting our shows," the band told New Times shortly after earning the coveted Best Band You've Never Heard Of award last year. "It took us almost three years to release music. So the fact that you're interviewing us is mind-boggling."
The fact that the world's ending is sort of mind-blowing too.
It's been real, y'all.
