Good Morning, Revelers! We are kicking off the New Year’s Eve celebration in style with our House Extended Playlist, and two live New Year’s Eve shows from two of our favorites!
Here’s your New Year’s Eve line-up:
9:00 a.m. #BecomeUngovernable House Playlist: Various Artists
The music that makes up the greatest part of our DNA, including songs from Barry McGuire, The Beatles, The Temptations, CSNY, Pink Floyd, Peter Tosh, Edwin Starr, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Chambers Brothers, Buffalo Springfield, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Byrds, Donovan, Jimmy Cliff, Cat Stevens, The Association, Marvin Gaye, The Band, Arlo Guthrie, George Harrison, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, and more!
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: The New Year’s Eve Concert Live at The Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, December 31, 1978
They were just musical babies here, but they were kicking ass and taking names. There are many reasons why TPATH is one of our House Bands, one of them being that they’re one of the best live performers on the planet. This concert is one for the books.
10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at the Closing of Winterland, San Francisco, December 31, 1978
Meanwhile, back in San Fran, the Dead was closing one great venue at Winterland. We give you a special edition of LIVE DEAD! tonight to help ring in the New Year.
There’s nothing like good music to help ring in a new beginning and, hopefully, better fortunes for all of us in the New Year. In the meantime, stay safe and push the button below. OK?
