No plans for New Year's? Join me. I'm heading out to ring in my new year with the Queen of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson and California darlings Best Coast at Club Nokia.

Former Elvis girlfriend, Wanda Jackson was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She was an early influence in the evolution of popular music, especially where female artists were concerned. She released her latest album, The Party Ain't Over earlier this year and has non-other than White Stripes' Jack White and Wanda performing a bad-ass rendition of Bob Dylan's "Thunder on the Mountain." Check out the official video below.

Best Coast, in a recent interview, revealed their follow-up to their debut album Crazy For You is expected this summer and front-woman Bethany Cosentino is promising a more 'mature' album saying the lyrics will focus on how her life has changed since the band became successful. Here's hoping we'll be hearing some new songs tomorrow night! Happy New Year everyone. Here's to 2012.
