Roscoe’s is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this weekend! There will be special beers on tap (FB invitation with beer list)), and they will be giving away new 10th anniversary t-shirts. The party kicks off Friday @ 2 pm and runs through 1/1/17.


Copper & Crow are at O’Neill Public House. Their first single “Love Wins in the End” is a nice sentiment to carry into the new year. 6000 NE Glisan St * 9:30 pm * free


I thought it would be fun to do a lap around downtown Montavilla to see if any of the businesses has anything special planned for NYE It was fun: I bought a sticker from Montavilla Brew Works, had some kung pow tofu from Chinese Village, got to see the disco room on a short tour of Portland Tub & Tan, and sang some Bill Withers at Montavilla Station.

It’s business as usual at most restaurants and bars in the area, but Montavilla Station will have a champagne toast, party hats, and noise makers for their guests. Oh yeah. Bolt Upright, a rockin’ blues band, will be playing live. 417 SE 80th Ave * 9 pm? * free


At Duff’s Garage for NYE: Ben Rice Colossal Group and Sister Mercy featuring April Brown. 2530 NE 82nd Ave *7 pm doors, 9 pm show *$12 w/ reserved table, $10 general admission

The new website is compete, so look forward to some new happenings early in the new year. Happy 2017!
