It's time to say good riddance to one year and welcome a new one. The Triangle always knows how to party and the New Year is certainly no exception. In addition to First Night Raleigh, there are some other great options for catching tunes and enjoying friends.
Relive the joys of Hopscotch and party to stimulating beats created by Body Games and T0W3RS at Kings. The multi-instrumentalists of Body Games will keep you moving well beyond the drop of the acorn with heavy electronic textures and lurching beats. Add in the whimsy of Derek Torres of T0W3RS and the result is a memorable New Year's Eve for the small cost of $12.50-$15.
Big Something will keep things moving on Cabarrus Street at Lincoln Theatre. Their dance-grooving space-rock anthems create an unforgettable experience perfect for celebrating a new year. The band's unique mix of rock, jazz, funk, and reggae pushes out beats to please every lover of music. Big Something will be supported by Big Daddy Love, a five-piece rock and roots band that creates a unique sound they refer to as, 'Appalachian Rock'. The party starts at 8 and is well worth the $20/$25 ticket.
THE POUR HOUSE:
For the local rockers, The Pour House has designed a lineup that won't disappoint. Corrosion of Conformity headlines the night. Decibel Magazine stated that COC serves as, "a crucial stylistic lynchpin in the bridge
between metal and punk" that "irrevocably reshaped crossover's sonic
possibilities." Supporting COC are two other heavy hitters, Bedowyn and Demon Eye. These three bands will get you ready to kick some serious ass in 2015. Show starts at 9 and $20/$25 will get you in the door with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.
THE AVETT BROTHERS:
Of course we can't possibly forget that The
Avett Brothers will celebrate the New Year in
Raleigh with a performance at the PNC Arena. These North Carolina favorites have been doing some intense touring all year promoting their latest release, Magpie and the Dandelion. Ticket and traveling packages are available at the Avett Brothers website.
