Pre-NYE music picks

My NYE thoughts for live music will be coming in the next post ... but don't overlook tonight or tomorrow ...

Happy hour?  I'd head to the Laurelthirst for Lewi Longmire at 6 pm ...

Other cheap (but quality!) choices ... Mel Brown's B3 Organ Band at Jimmy Mak's (8 pm, $5), Steve Kerin on the Chapel Pub organ (8 pm, no cover), Sarah Gwen Peters & Scott Weddle, Mike Midlo at Mississippi Pizza (9 pm, $??), or the Alan Jones Jazz Jam at The Blue Monk (8 pm, $5)

The sublime vocal/piano duo of Rebecca Kilgore and Dave Frishberg are at Touche ... (8 pm, $5 plus $10 food/drink minimum)

Kicking of a NYE weekend of shows at the Alberta Rose tonight is a fine double bill of Black Prairie and Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons ... 9 pm, $15 (sorry, but tomorrow and Saturday's Storm Large/Holcomb Waller shows are sold out!)

Casey Anderson & The Honkies and Star Anna & The Laughing Dogs are at Mississippi Studios ... 9 pm, $10

Lauren Sheehan and Terry Robb make for an excellent string-bending duo at the Muddy Rudder ... 8 pm, no cover

The Linda Hornbuckle Band checks into Jimmy Mak's for some soulful pre-NYE tunes ... 8 pm, $10

Nothing fishy about Lloyd Jones playing at Halibuts ... 8 pm,  no cover

The Pete Krebs Swing Trio will keep things mellow and swingin' at the Press Club ... 8:30 pm, no cover

If your a fan of Johnny Cash, you should check out Get Rhythm at Duff's Garage ... 9:30 pm, $??

Rock hard at the Doug Fir with Ants In The Kitchen, Morgan Grace, and Ramble On (Led Zep tribute) ... 9 pm, $8

Trio Subtonic and The Ocular Concern are joining forces for a pre-NYE show at The Blue Monk ... 9 pm, $??

Excellent show at Mississippi Studios with Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons (who are also at Dante's on NYE) and The Minus Five ... 9 pm, $15

More on NYE later or tomorrow!  Stay tuned!
