When a band has been around as long as Charlie Butts and the Filter Tips, you’d think they would get tired of playing the same songs over and over again. But after 18 years in the Inland Northwest, the band performs with a fresh, youthful excitement. Tonight they’ll release their latest CD, More Peas. Check them out at 9 pm at Bluz at the Bend. $3. Gotta be 21.
The first of TWO nights of Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot starts tonight out at Northern Quest Casino. It's a tour, which has already been seen by huge crowds all over Europe and Japan. The show tonight is at 7:30 pm, and costs $70-$80. Tomorrow, the price goes up to $150. Gotta be 21.
TOMORROW! NEW YEAR'S!
Tired of sitting home alone on New Year’s Eve, watching the folks in Times Square have fun? Then get off your butt and head to A Club for a night of food, drinks and the Go-Go’s … well Go Man Go's, that is. The all-male Go-Go’s cover band (yes, you read that right) perform classic songs like “Vacation” and “Our Lips Are Sealed” with as much, if not more spunk, than the original group. Local favorites Whiskey Dick Mountain, rock-and-rollers the Camaros, surf rockers BBBBandits and party-starting extraordinaire DJ Jorgens. The $25-$30 tickets include access to a dessert bar, hors d’oeuvres and champagne. Gotta be 21.
Soul Proprietor, Spokane's nine-piece horn band will be rockin' on New Year's Eve from 9 pm-1 am. Doors open at 8. Full dinner available, and free champagne at midnight. Tickets: $25. The Luxury Box, 1512 E. Sprague Ave.
Head on down to Mootsy's for a show with locals Bandit Train, Summer in Siberia, Old Bear Mountain, the Soul and the Machine and DJ Bandit Bear. $10. Gotta be 21.
