It's the end of the Aughts, Nashville! What to do on New Year's Eve? Lucky for you, this here flowchart will help you decide. Just follow the lines and stuff. Of course, there wasn't room for everything that's going on--this is the big city, after all. In addition to all the sexy stilt-walkin' and Broadway guitar-droppin' and Pink Delorean-dancin' there's a 12-band juggernaut going down at the Hamilton that is Little, as well as some shindiggery at Betty's. (You can peep both those lineups over at Nashville's Dead.) Charted lineups after the jump.
