Get more New Year’s bang for your buck with a zip-zappin’, toe-tappin’ party hosted by retro-kitsch “little orchestra” Pink Martini, whose classy cornucopia of ’30s Cuban mambo, Brazilian samba, French chansons and Japanese gangster-flick sounds is a round-the-world ticket to a dozen or more times and terrains. An L.A. favorite, the 20-year-old ensemble recently was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. Special guests tonight: the von Trapps — yes, the actual great-grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp of The Sound of Music fame — with whom the Pinks will blow you outta your BarcaLounger with new classics from the two groups’ collaborative album, Dream a Little Dream.

Wed., Dec. 31, 7 & 10:30 p.m., 2014
(Expired: 12/31/14)
