New Year's Ain't for Babies

A quick reference guide to an all-ages New Year

The Minie Gonzalez Band
The Minie Gonzalez Band

New Year's isn't so much fun when you’re under 21, what with all the hype around drinking to excess as one last hurrah for the passing year. But, honestly, the younger crowd has it easier in some ways: no need for designated drivers, no waking up next to a stranger or forgetting the events of the previous night. Take advantage of your freedom from alcohol-induced stupidity and enjoy a musically stimulating all-ages New Year. Here are a few places around town open to all for the dawn of 2007.

Blue Dragon Coffeehouse

1517 Girard NE • 268-5159

Carpooling to the Blue Dragon on New Year's Eve is a really good idea. Not because you'll need a designated driver—unless driving under the influence of a nonfat double mocha is illegal—but because parking is an artform outside the popular coffee shop. Say goodbye to ’06 with some funk by Aladocious and the Americana, rock, jazzy blues of the Minie Gonzalez Band. Food will be served until 11 p.m., the doors won't shut anyone out until 1 a.m. and, as always, it's free.

The Cell

700 First Street NW • 766-9412

Nothing says “$*#& you, 2006!” better than heavy metal and experimental screamcore. On New Year's Eve Eve (Saturday, Dec. 30), The Cell will host an all-ages music event at 7 p.m. Start the last mosh pit of ’06 with the help of Lacerate, WEATHERred, Back To Green River and Code of the Zodiac. Bring $7 for the cover.

Sol Arts Performance Space

712 Central SE • 244-0049

Don't settle for mundane this New Year's Eve—the folks at Sol Arts aren't. They're offering up jugglers, fire-eaters, dancing bears, magicians, live music and original films for the passing of 2006. This New Year's Eve Variety Show is so fantastic it won't be confined to just one performance. Take it in early on Saturday, Dec. 30, at 8 p.m., or on New Year's Eve proper at 8 and 10 p.m. All shows are $5.

Solid Grounds Coffeehouse

4601 Juan Tabo NE • 293-9673 ext. 111

End 2006 on a jazzier note with Kari and Todd from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 30. This event is part of a weekly series of all-ages music in a family-friendly environment with an inspirational message held every Saturday at St. Stephen's United Methodist Church. It's free, and there'll be food and a dance floor for shakin' it.

Santa Fe Brewing Co.

18 East Frontage, Santa Fe • (505) 424-3333

Sure, they make and serve some really tasty local brew, but Santa Fe Brewing Co.’s dedication to all-ages music is commendable. On Saturday, Dec. 30, Bill Hearne's Roadhouse Revue take their classic country and electric honky-tonk to the stage at 6 p.m., and the Ryan McGarvey Band will play some hard rockin' blues at 9 p.m. The $10 all-ages cover includes party favors and appetizers.

Warehouse 21

1614 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe • (505) 989 4423

2006 holds a special meaning to Warehouse 21: It's their last year in the shack they’ve called home since 1997. On Saturday, Dec. 30, W21 is going all out for the end of this year and the start of a new life in a new building (finally). Starting at 6 p.m., catch music performances by Brian Botkiller, Victimas, Torn Between Worlds, Trichomes, Pint Size and Tomas Rivera from Battles End. Mosh (with love) until midnight and say goodbye to the old W21. It's $5 for teens and $10 for adults.
