All Ages What to Do NYE
It was fun to watch my son change his attitude about live music. He lives out in the sticks with his father and thought that going to a show would be "gay." (I hate that word and am trying to break him of it--he doesn't seem to be using it as a hate word, but all of his friends use it to mean "lame." Still not good.) Seeing a band that he really liked without knowing who they were previously gave him a taste of the russian roulette that is the Seattle music scene. Sometimes it rocks and sometimes it doesn't, but if you don't take a chance you will miss out on something cool.
There is a show at the Crocodile on New Years Eve with Harvey Danger and Mon Frere that is all ages and I would love to take him to it. I don't know how it will fit in with my other New Year's plans, but I am hoping...
Sunday December 31 4:00pm Harvey Danger's First Annual Last Show Ever:Harvey Danger, Mon Frere, Awesome $5, All AgesAt Crocodile Cafe located at 2200 2nd Ave.
So Vera is holding court over at the Crocodile Cafe for an early all ages New Year's Eve bonanza! And since it'll be over by 9pm (Doors are at 4pm) we're celebrating New Years in Brazil! That puts the countdown at 6pm so don't miss it! It's a carnival(as in Rio) theme so bring the masquerade masks, feather boas, and general party outfits!
There is always the dilemma of what to do on New Years Eve, what with all the parties and shows
going on. This year, your problem is solved because Harvey Danger, Mon Frere, and Awesome are playing an early all-ages show at the Crocodile that will have you dancing in seconds flat, and pumped up for the rest of your night.
Harvey Danger are the musical rescue you’ve been looking for, with a pop sensitivity that (with their powers combined) has even the cynics singing along. They just can’t help it. And Mon Frere is always an ear-pleaser, what with their uncanny ability to get the room shaking and all. The night’s
openers, Awesome, are perhaps the most aptly
named band around. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to hear the alphabet sung in a round, Awesome has your answer, and if you’ve
ever wondered what it means to be Awesome, well, come see it live. You really don’t have a choice, because for five dollars you cannot beat this show, and by the time it’s over you’ll still have the whole night ahead of you to get your New Years groove on.
