We’re within a few hours of the end of this year, which, speaking on a personal level, was a pretty good one.
So, maybe a celebration is in order. Here’s a brief roundup of some of the New Year’s Eve events in the area:
â¢Â The duo of Greg Faiers and Marty Faiers (the latter a Fayetteville native) play a wide mix of American styles. Known onstage as Dead Irish Blues, the pair visits Fayetteville from their home in Pennsylvania for a New Yearâs Eve show at the Tanglewood Branch Beer Co. Admission to the 9 p.m. show is free.
â¢ In case those in Eureka Springs are ready to celebrate the New Year extra early, Northwest Arkansas trio Big Bad Gina will perform at 9 p.m. Sunday (Dec. 30) at the Voulez Vous Lounge in Eureka Springs. Admission is $5. On Monday night, when the band is joined for a 9 p.m. show at the same venue by Joe Credit, admission is $15. There will be hourly prizes and a champagne toast at midnight during the second of the two shows.
â¢ Last Night Fayetteville will take over the downtown square. 3 Penny Acre and Randall Shreve and the Sideshow are among those expected to perform. Read more about Last Night in today’s What’s Up! section [Note: Subscriber content].
