NYE with Skrillex and Diplo at Madison Square Garden

Happy New Year! Ok, it has been 2015 for a couple weeks now, but I stated last week that I would be posting about the holidays for what will seem like forever. And yes, I do still have more to come, but for now, welcome to our New Year's Eve celebration!

To start things off, Kev and I stayed true to our married New Year's tradition of having our favorite champagne, Veuve Clicquot, in our Kate Spade wedding glasses. I really don't remember how it started, but we've done it every year for the whopping whole two years we've been married so far, so why not keep it going! Plus, it's always fun to pull out the "fancy cocktail glasses" and sip champagne! Since we had plans, we cheated a little and had it before midnight with a kids countdown we found on Netflix. Silly I know, but we like to have fun and that's just what we did! For all you parents out there, the Netflix countdown was actually pretty genius. You could play it whenever to fool your kids into thinking they stayed up until midnight. It may not work if they can read time, but it could be worth a try next year if applicable to you! 

One of the biggest things we got asked about was if we were going to go to Times Square for NYE. While it looks wonderful on TV and is something everyone wants to do once in their life, it just wasn't for us. After going to Rockefeller Center earlier that week and dealing with those crowds, it just didn't seem like we would have any fun or really get to see anything. Instead, we opted to go to a concert at our winter home away from home, Madison Square Garden. I actually still have at least one more event from MSG to post regarding the holiday season, maybe you'll see it next week!    

The concert we attended was the Jack Ü tour, featuring Skrillex and Diplo who formed this super duo group in 2013. They also had special guests Yellow Claw (not pictured), Rudimental (in the collage with beers at Penn Station), and A$AP Ferg (the three part collage) join them for the NYE show. Now while I actually hadn't heard of the guest acts before, they each really put on a great show! Their songs were great, they had amazing stage presence, and their energy was out of control! If you are an EDM fan and haven't heard of them, you should defiantly check them out!

You may recall from this summer that we attended the Governor's Ball music festival which also had Skrillex, my fave DJ, as a main act. I know he's been around for a little over ten years, but I first fell in love with him when his song First of the Year (Equinox) was released off of his album More 
Monsters and Sprites in 2011. His shows and setlist never disappoint. He mixes old with new and does so flawlessly. Seeing him twice in one years time was absolutely incredible! I can't wait to see what he has in store in the future,  

The countdown starts! We weren't sure if there would be a traditional countdown that's why we did the Netflix one before we left. It was an amazing site to see everyone enjoying the moment together! May this year bring you all that you want and desire! Now I present you the duo Jack Ü.
