live musicWhatever your music taste may be, there's a New Years concert for you. From country to punk to jam bands, check out one of these concerts on NYE. 

1." Sarah Borges at Lizard Lounge

South Shore country darling Sarah Borges will ring in the New Year with her bluesy licks in Cambridge’s coziest basement. She’ll welcome several secret special guests on top of her already stellar lineup of local players, including Marco Giovino of Robert Plant’s band and guitarist Mike Castellana. (9 p.m.; Lizard Lounge; $20; 21+)"

2. Andrew WK at The Paradise

The King of Party will ring in 2016 in front of a sold-out Paradise crowd, performing his 2001 debut album I Get Wet in its entirety. WK, whose anthems include “Party Hard,” “It’s Time to Party,” and “Party ‘Til You Puke,” will be joined by local bands Tigerman Woah! and Vundabar. (9 p.m.; The Paradise; $33; 18+)

3. "Dopapod at The Palladium

Jambands aren’t always good, but when they are, they’re pretty darn fun to see. Boston’s own Dopapod is one of the best touring today, and they’ll send Worcester into a happy 2016 with the help of funk heros Turkuaz and Connecticut’s Kung Fu. (7 p.m.; Palladium; $30-50; all ages)"

5 Ideas for NYE in Boston

Posted by 365 Things Boston on Tue, Dec 29, 2015

bostonNeed some last minute ideas for New Years Eve? Check out these 5 - everything from clubs and bars to family friendly activities. 

1."Bessie’s New Years Eve Pajama Dance Party

The Children’s Discovery Museum in Acton is throwing a New Year’s Eve day party this year that lets you and your kids celebrate the new year in the early afternoon on December 31. This way, your children can have fun and get to bed on time. And you can still go out at night. Join the Museum’s mascot, Bessie the green dinosaur, for a dance party as you count down to 12. (12 noon, that is!)"

2. "Jay-Z and Beyoncé night at Back Bay Harry’s

Celebrate the end of 2015 like (America’s version of) royalty. Back Bay Harry’s is throwing a Bey and Jay-themed party at the turn of the new year. Concert performances will be projected on a big screen, and a four-course prix fixe meal based on their hottest tracks will be served up–“‘Baby Boy’ beef tenderloin carpaccio, ‘Big Pimpin’’ Statler chicken breast, and ‘Crazy in Love’ molten chocolate cake with brûléed Bey-nanas” are on the menu. And cocktail dress is required since the hip-hop moguls never step out in less than the best."

3. "Candibar/Royale/Guilt

This New Year’s Eve, Candibar is offering VIP tickets that get you access to Candibar’s neighbors, nightclubs Royale and Guilt. For a fairly average ticket price–$69–you get access to three different spots on Tremont Street. Less-expensive general admission tickets are also available, which just gets you into Candibar, but still includes complimentary party favors, a champagne toast at midnight, and a televised broadcast of the Times Square ball drop."

4. "Top of the Hub

Spend New Year’s Eve at the Prudential Center’s top-floor restaurant, which boasts (arguably) the best view of Boston you can find. You know what that means: prime view of the fireworks. The Top of the Hub has a prix fixe, four-course menu on New Year’s Eve that does not include beverages and changes depending on when you go (later seating times have higher prices.) There will be live music, and each guest will start their meal with complimentary champagne. Très luxe."

5. "First Night

Boston’s buffet of New Year’s Eve events is back again. This event has it all: live music at Berklee, ice sculptures, face painting, photos with Elsa from Frozen, and, of course, fireworks. This year, First Night is free, thanks to generous sponsors and donors, and the festivities carry on into the new year with more events on January 1. All people of all ages are welcome."
