The folks from Dirty Mittens know how to soften the blow of bad news. When they announced their breakup earlier this month, it came with the silverest of linings: It turns out that Chelsea Morrisey, Ryan Hanzlik, Noah Jay-Bonn, Patrick Griffin, and Josh Hawley will still be making music together, only under a different name. Thus, Artifice has been born, and tonight's New Year's Eve party—with Purple & Green headlining—is their live debut. With the Mittens' pedigree, there's little doubt that their knack for tunefulness will be in evidence, but it sounds like Artifice are mining a darker, more electronic vibe than the pure-hearted pop of Dirty Mittens. Expect heavy drums, buckets of synths, and plenty of tastefully black-mooded angst. NED LANNAMANN
