Oakland-based experimental electronic music group Beats Antique are hosting their very own New Year's Eve extravaganza at The Virtual Mushroom so you can ring in 2021 in a mystical land from the comfort of your own home.
The December 31st event will consist of five shows across each timezone, with dance performances, live music, and midnight countdowns. The Virtual Mushroom is a recently launched online venue designed by te legendary digital artist Android Jones and powered by Infinite Reality.
