A New Year’s Eve guide for music lovers

Assign your designated driver, line up the babysitter, and pick one or more of these musical New Year's Eve throwdowns to help you kick 2017 to the curb, where it belongs. Buffalo Dead All-Stars, 3 p.m., Sportsmen's Tavern (326 Amherst St.) $10. This is a cool and somewhat novel idea – a matinee New Year's Eve gig that will have you back home in plenty of time to count down the minutes until 2018. BDA is comprised of veterans of the considerably deep local Grateful Dead repertoire-based scene. The cast of characters rotates, but for this special show, leader/drummer Tim Hitchcock will be joined by guitarist Todd Eberwine and keyboardist/vocalist Kevin Kay, among others. These guys know their Dead. - Jeff Miers Duke's New Year's Eve All-Night License Party, 8 p.m., Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar (253 Allen St.) $40 includes dinner. Each year, DBGB's in Allentown assembles the required paperwork and grabs itself an all-night license to kick off the New Year in style. If dancing is your thing, this is where you'll wanna celebrate. DJs Milk, the Incredible Scott Down, Charlie the Butcher, Dovey, Basha and Charles Master will keep the decks spinning and the bass throbbing until daylight, and possibly beyond. There will be food to fuel your fire, and a bottomless champagne fountain to keep that fire under control. - J.M. Aqueous returns home for a New Year's Eve show at Town Ballroom. Aqueous, 8 p.m. Town Ballroom, $20-$25. Normally I try to stay as far away from jam music as possible, but Aqueous has an intriguing trick up its sleeve for its New Years Eve gig at the Theatre District music venue. The groove rock unit will be performing two sets. The first, for those so inclined, will be collection of Aqueous originals, tracks that the band has long road tested while seeing its profile continue to climb. Part two, however, is where things get pretty interesting as the four-piece will perform a tribute set to Gorillaz, the cartoon, genre-torching side project of Continue Reading
