The addition of the “New Year's Super Group” Ãƒâ€š could make this one of the most interesting Portland NYE events this year.
From Facebook info:
and The New Year's Super Group (see below)
with The Dimes
This is the New Years Eve Party for people who want to dance, grind, and rock all in one place. The show for people with a rock n' roll sensibility and the deep and impulsive need to dance on the biggest party night of the year.
The Dimes open with their high energy folk-pop tunes at 9pm. Can the over 400 people who lined up for their recent CD release party be wrong?!
WEINLAND lays aside the ballads and unleashes the beast at 10pm. Okay, we may play a ballad in the middle.. just so you know its us.. but in general we're coming to this with the energy that ended many of our recent tour shows with full blown sing alongs and stage rushing dancer kids.
Then, to close the showÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬¦
The New Year's Super Group:
Playing fast paced pump your fist and dance songs that span the last four decades of rock and pop.
We've been taking requests and have many, sure to get you moving, super hits in the bag! The early leaks: Eye of The Tiger by Survivor, Don't Stop Me Now by Queen, and Pump it Up by Elvis Costello. Soon to be announced.. the pop contingent.. do I smell MJ? JT? dare I mention Phil Collins??
We've got guests galore digging through their favorite jams and signing up to sing and play. The early committers:
