SHOW LISTINGS for Thursday, December 31, 2021
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT NEW YEAR’S EVE LISTINGS:
Listings are organized by area in which the shows occur and within each area field shows are listed chronologically based on show times. Showtimes are indicated as accurately as possible (keeping in mind that many, many clubs and bands don’t bother to list times on their posters or websites) and in some cases are educated guesses based on past shows at the particular room.
Admission prices followed by a slash and minus (/-) after the amount indicates door charge with availability of cheaper rates for some purchases. /+ indicates stated price is a minimum. In the case of the many, many clubs who don’t bother to state whether there is a cover charge (or the many who have “Get Tickets” links that don’t work, suggesting there is a cover but making it impossible to determine the amount) the symbol “$?” indicates this uncertainty. Shows listed with no admission charge information may be free or it may indicate that we have absolutely no clue whether or not there is a cover. Shows promoted as having no cover are identified as such.
Names of subscribers appear in bold, are underlined and, where applicable, include a live link to their websites.
