Gramps Bar's Free New Year's Eve 2013: Arthur Baker and the Return to Miami
The venerable Arthur Baker wants to party with you for free.
If Gramps had announced this party a bit earlier, it would have surely make Crossfade's list of best free New Year's Eve events. And in a city where the average general admission ticket for tonight's festivities ranges in the hundreds, it's great to see a solid New Year's Eve celebration cost nothing.

Arthur Baker, who's done music production for the likes of Afrika Bambaataa and New Order, will be spinning tonight along with Gramps' slew of regular DJs like Juan Tapia and Lorraine Sangre.
Baker will be taking over the backroom -- yes, there is a backroom -- and helping you ring in 2013 with drink specials, bocce, and food by Ms. Cheezious.
NBC Miami also reports that part-time Miami resident and Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh will be making an appearance as well. "My buddy Arthur Baker decided to throw a back-in-town party, so we thought: 'Let's have some if that,'" Welsh tells NBC.
Arthur Baker's Return to Miami. With Juan Tapia, Lorraine Sangre, Cap'n'Ron, Adam G., and others. Monday, December 31. Gramps, 176 NW 24th St., Miami. The party starts at 6 p.m. and there's no cover. Ages 21 and up. Call 786-752-6693 or visit grampsbar.com.
