Some of the events have a familiar ring to them: Performances by Peaches O’Dell at the Black Cat, the Seldom Scene at the Birchmere, Deanna Bogart at Rams Head or the Legwarmers at the State Theatre have become an annual tradition at this point.

But there are some new items for your calendars: DJ Dave Nada hosts another of his Moombahton Massive all-nighters at U Street Music Hall, the Fillmore celebrates its first Dec. 31 in Silver Spring with ‘70s favorites Little Feat, and the 9:30 Club hosts Southern rockers the Drive By Truckers for the finale of a three-night stand.

We’ll have to wait until closer to December before info about parties at dive bars and other more low-key clubs, but if you’re wondering where you’ll ring in 2012, this is a good time to start looking.
