Travis Barker, Yelawolf, Wynter Gordon and Flavor Flav rang in 2013 at Palms on New Year’s Eve.

Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker teamed up with rapper Yelawolf to bring their new collaborative project to Rain. The tattooed duo arrived in style for the New Year’s Eve celebrations. Barker strutted into the club sporting camouflage cargo shorts, low-top Converse Chuck Taylors, a Famous Stars and Straps sleeveless shirt and backward hat, and holding his signature drumsticks. Yelawolf was right next to him also in a Famous Stars and Straps shirt, dark jeans, high-ankle boots, sunglasses and smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer.

Right before midnight, the pair rushed the stage and immediately exploded into a performance of Beastie Boys’ “Fight For Your Right.” The crowd went crazy as Barker pounded his drums and Yelawolf chugged a beer and Rain’s fireballs shot from the roof. After their dynamic entrance, Yelawolf thanked the crowd for spending New Year’s Eve with him and Barker then asked the crowd to help them countdown to the new year. The entire crowd counted along with Yelawolf on the microphone and Travis striking his drumsticks together. At the stroke of midnight, confetti exploded eclipsing the nightclub, couples kissed and friends embraced. As the confetti started to settle, Barker started an epic drum solo that transitioned into “Push Em,” the new recently released song on the twosome’s extended-play tracklist collaboration, “Psycho White.”

The Alabama MC and Blink-182 drummer continued to perform their rap-rock team-up hits including “Funky Shit,” “6 Feet Underground” and “Whistle Dixie” for the at-capacity nightclub.

When the set was over, Yelawolf wished everyone a happy new year and Barker threw his drumsticks to the crowd before they both joined about 20 friends in Rain’s Sky Boxes where they drank Jack Daniels, Grey Goose and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

At Moon Nightclub, Wynter Gordon counted down the New Year and seduced the crowd with a thrilling performance. The Jamaican beauty dazzled in a leather mirco-mini dress, sexy leggings and sky-high stilettos. The pop princess performed her popular hits “Til Death,” “Buy My Love” and the popular “Dirty Talk.”

At Ghostbar, Flavor Flav and Criss Angel enjoyed Perrier-Jouët Champagne at a table overlooking the city with a large group of friends. Around 3 a.m. the Cirque du Soleil magician requested to have Public Enemy songs played. When the deejay played “911 Is a Joke,” to everyone’s surprise, Flavor Flav grabbed the microphone and performed the entire song in a long fur coat and pants. The entire club went crazy as guests snapped pictures and sang along.
