Want to get out of town for New Year's Eve, but not so far out of town that you're in California or Vegas?
Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers are planning a pretty cool option: a show at Flagstaff's historic Orpheum Theatre.
Clyne's shows are always a big drunken party, and sometimes it's nice to see a little snow at the start of the new year, so this makes a lot of sense.
The all-ages show is on December 31, which is a Friday this year (yay!), and will run from 8 p.m. until after midnight. RCPM have support from Tramps & Thieves and Telescope. Tickets are $40 plus service fees in advance -- not cheap, but not a lot given the natural NYE mark-up -- and if you're up in Flag you can pick them up at available at Rainbow's End or Animas Trading. Otherwise go to Greenhouse Productions website.
Not sold? Stay tuned to Up On The sun for updates on other NYE show options as they pop up.
