Old Russian New Year: Chervona

[PARTY FOLK] After centuries of miscounted leap years, the Julian calendar has pushed Russia’s official religious New Year well into January. Religion being optional in Russia, the Old New Year is just an excuse for many Russians to break out leftovers from the first New Year’s and procure more vodka—and not think too much about the blatant contradiction of “old new” staring them in the face. But, hell, you already know that, because rambunctious folk party rockers Chervona have been throwing their confusing but accurate Old New Year celebration for seven years now. It’s wild, it’s sweaty and it’s even partially sung in Russian. 

Where: Star Theater
Address: 13 NW 6th Ave.
