For the uninitiated, Seattle has a healthy scene of dancers, musicians, and DJs obsessed with R&B and soul music from the ’60s and ’70s. Meaning there are tons of parties where dressing in your grandma’s go-go boots, wearing thick eyeliner, and boogie-ing down to some 45s is not only welcomed, but heavily encouraged. And for this New Year’s Eve, three Seattle parties dedicated to just that have teamed up for a spectacular end of the year celebration. 

BOOTS!Emerald City Soul Club (ECSC), and WIG OUT are taking over both Screwdriver Bar and Belltown Yacht Club (BYC) for their New Year’s Eve A Go-Go! party on December 31st. Throughout the night, eight DJs from across BOOTS!, ECSC, and WIG OUT will be on deck spinning some classic, soulful tunes in both Screwdriver and BYC that’ll make you wanna groove all the way into 2024. And, of course, the BOOTS! go-go crew will be on the scene, hopping and shimmying. 

At midnight, festivities will pause for a champagne toast and some confetti before everyone gets back to getting down until the wee hours of the morning. Do some stretches the night before and come dressed in your shiniest attire—2024 beckons!
