If you’re heading for the Big Apple this New Year’s Eve, here’s a rundown of four events that are sure to keep your body rocking.

Our favorite badass fashionista and fiery emcee is hitting the Standard Hotel on the eve of the new year, with a special performance at it’s rooftop venue. While it’s a black tie affair, we can just see it now: cocktail dresses, suits, spiked wing-tips, models hurling stories up and everyone jumping into Le Bain’s pool.

What’s a party without a DJ? And what’s a New Year’s Eve bash without two? Exactly. Legendary producer and and spindoctor RJD2 is heading to Gramercy Theatre with electronic maverick Com Truise for a night of anything left of sober. Thing you can handle it?

Who else loves you baby? No one other than DJ Venus X, that’s for sure. And she’s dealing out futures, than 2013 is looking super sweet.
