Looking for a high-energy bash to bring in the 2009 New Year? Look no further than Sparks, Nevada where California up-and-comers, Blue Turtle Seduction and Izabella, have joined forces to produce a "retro-formal" New Year's blowout at the Great Basin Brewery. Both bands have garnered reputations for turning each and every performance into an all-out dance party, and this all-night celebration promises to be no exception.
The fresh musical movement known as Blue Turtle Seduction is a two-fold sonic experience. Both musically and socially aware, the five-piece rock / bluegrass / reggae / hip-hop hybrid creates music that defies classification. Their 2008 release, "13 Floors" was recently selected as one of the top 100 albums of 2008 at KTHX 100.1 radio. Nestled between legends such as Radiohead, Lucinda Williams and Joan Baez, 2009 promises to be a big year for this South Lake Tahoe band.

Fans are encouraged to dress in "retro-formal attire" and it is strongly suggested that attendees purchase tickets in advance, the show is expected to sell out.
