Lovefool, $20, 9 p.m., Dec. 31

Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 9 p.m., $20

To the great disappointment of many (and by many, I mostly mean me), Lovefool is not a cover band that exclusively plays hits from the Cardigans—or rather, it's not a band that plays “Lovefool,” their one hit made famous by Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet—over and over again. That being said, the Bay Area band plays a ton of other stuff: the Ramones, Madonna, the Beastie Boys, Aaliyah, Phoenix. Bands like this were invented for nights of heavy inebriation and no-one-will-remember-it dancing, and what's more fitting for New Year's? (FYI, if you want to hear “Lovefool,” it's played on request. You know what to do.) 2708 J Street,
