Five Fun Things to do in PVD on NYE

Get the champagne ready and go watch people make bad decisions — it’s New Year’s Eve! There’s a lot happening in the Providence area, so here are five fun events to keep in mind when planning what should be an epic night.

5.) Hit Up A Bar: A few local establishments are ringing in the new year with wonderful festivities. Nolan’s Corner Pub is going all out with a champagne toast, fondue and bacon. It’s always a solid bet you’ll have a good time at The Scurvy Dog, The Hot Club has Tank Jones on the 1s and 2s, Oscar Champagne is putting on a dance party in The Cutting Room at The Salon, and Dox Ellis and Music Please are DJing both the taproom and the speakeasy at Local 121.
4.) Daddie Long Legs @ The Spot: Providence funk rock act Daddie Long Legs will be throwing a party at The Spot with New Orleans acid-jazz act Naughty Professor, swampy blues funkers Sgt. Baker & The Clones, and the groovy tones of Blue Collar Samurai. It’s bound to be a time filled with righteous vibes. Tickets: paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=V7V5K4363F5LQ
3. 95.5 WBRU Homebru’d New Year’s Eve Bash @ The Met: Indie soul act Jetty and shoegazy post rockers Forest Fires have made waves in 2014 with their infectious songs, gathering new groups of fans wherever they go and leading a new wave of amazing bands to a scene already chock full of talent. WBRU is putting on a show at The Met with both acts along with Boston indie rock up-and-comers Morals. Should be a fun night over in Pawtucket for people who like to have their finger on the pulse of what’s happening locally.

2.) Smith & Weeden, Willy Mason, Tallahassee & Last Good Tooth @ The Columbus Theatre: For the twangy rock ‘n’ roller in all of us, The Columbus Theatre has a stacked bill with Smith & Weeden, Willy Mason, Tallahassee, and Last Good Tooth setting the upstairs stage ablaze. Grab a ticket before the show because it’s surely going to sell out. Tickets: columbusnye2014.brownpapertickets.com/
1.) Extinction Machine, Cannibal Ramblers, Gavage, and Von Donovan @ Dusk: This could very well be the best deal going for a good time on New Year’s Eve. Where else can you see four amazing rock acts for free, plus free food and a free champagne toast at midnight? Dusk has all of that happening with post-punk blues dynamos Von Donovan, jazzy punks Gavage, the dirty blues of Cannibal Ramblers, and metal punk lunatics Extinction Machine. Did I mention that it’s free?
Honorable Mention: Tapestries, Way Out, Pyramid, Orion Rigel Dommisse, Dan Dodd & Hiwatts @ The News Cafe: For your New Year’s Eve nightcap, The News Cafe in Pawtucket will be open until 3am with Tapestries, Way Out, Pyramid, Orion Rigel Dommisse, Dan Dodd, and Hiwatts putting on what should be a wonderful show. And the cover won’t tear a hole in your wallet.
