More New Year’s Eve Suggestions

Ring in the new year with The Zombies

Every time I cruise Facebook, I find more worthwhile things to promote for New Year’s Eve. Please note, I listed some on yesterday’s post as well. Wish I could travel around with a film crew and broadcast all of these fun celebrations on national TV.

The Zombies have a fun suggestion for New Year’s Eve. If you start playing “This Will Be Our Year”  from their classic Odessey and Oracle album at 11:58:16, the final “this will be our year” will play exactly at midnight. Unfortunately, it wasn’t their year to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame but they’re going to be on tour in 2018, so you can tell them in person how well their New Year’s Eve idea worked.

EXPO ’76, a cover band comprising veterans of the Chicago rock scene, will be performing selections from their massive and amazingly eclectic repertoire at the Sidebar Room at FitzGerald’s.

The Chicago Botanic Garden, at 1000 Lake Cook Road in Glencoe, is offering its annual Wonderland Express through January 7. The indoor exhibit features model trains, miniature Chicago landmarks, and carolers.

It’ll be a bit past New Year’s Eve, but there’s some retro-inspired good times coming up at Martyrs’ on Thursday, January 4 when Rosie And The Rivets, Amazing Heeby Jeebies, and Tiny Miles Trio share a triple bill.
