Commonwealth Pity Party
Another great option for those of your seeking something out of the ordinary. One of Downtown’s favorite bars, Commonwealth, will be hosting Puddles Pity Party to ring in 2015. If you are unfamiliar with the cult comedy/lounge performer, fret not. The giant performer, who has been popular in the Atlanta entertainment scene for years, is seven-foot-tall and dressed like a clown. The “sad clown with a golden voice” gained popularity after covering a well known song by Lorde. The unpredictable show is singing, intertwined with bits of comedy and improv to keep the audience guessing. He has performed to rave reviews in Las Vegas twice before and the New Years Eve lineup will show three times throughout the night. Tickets are $20 for men, $10 for women and $50 for the all-you-can-drink pass.
