2008_12_justice_nye.jpgThere are a jillion ways to ring in the new year around Chicago, from small parties with close friends to inhumanly posh ballroom galas, but the hippest route in this town will undeniably be the Justice show at The Congress Theater on New year's Eve.

Justice are the undeniable kings of the DJ circuit right now -- at least while Daft Punk still has their glowing pyramid packed away in storage next the the Ark of the Covenant -- and their live sets have quickly become legendary. You don't believe us? Take a gander at the DVD (or listen to the CD) documetary of their last world tour A Cross The Universe and the pulse pounding, near metal aural oblivion they wreak will fill you with shock and awe.

If Justice wasn't enough, this particular show also includes just about every single late-night hipster DJ Chiocago has to offer ... which means just about every single scenester photog will be there too. Which means the room is gonna be bedecked with more colorful and outlandish fashions than even a Halloween on Neptune could muster. In other words it's gonna be outta this world. Dig?

You want the full list of who's playing? O.K.: Justice, So Me, Peanut Butter Wolf, Hey Champ, Home Video, Willy Joy, Zebo, The Glamour, Dark Wave Disco DJs, and Skyler.

We're running a contest through next week for a pair of tickets to the show for a lucky reader so enter for your chance at that after the jump. However, uif you want to ensure you gain entry tickets are still available.
