New Year’s Eve Events

Mishawaka

2016 has without a doubt been the biggest year in the Mishawaka’s hundred year history. The venue will close this monumental year with an intimate New Year’s Eve performance from Shakedown Street, Colorado’s premier Grateful Dead tribute band. All ticket buyers will be entitled to a complimentary champagne toast at midnight and prime rib will be on special in the restaurant. This performance will close out the Mishawaka’s first formal Fall/Winter concert series, which also featured prominent local acts WhiteWater Ramble, Derek Blake, One Flew West, Bandits, Wasteland Hop, and The Other Black. While this is not the first ever NYE concert put on by the Mishawaka, the venue hopes this will mark the beginning of a new tradition that the community can enjoy for the next hundred years. Shakedown Street is a natural choice for the Mishawaka. Much like the venue, the band has a rich history that is uniquely Colorado. Formed in 1987 in Manitou Springs, Shakedown Street is one of the longest running and highly respected Grateful Dead tribute bands working today. “Shakeheads” from all over are sure to flock to the Mishawaka to ring in the New Year with the spirit of improvisation and discovery. Doors 7pm, show 8pm. themishawaka.com

Lyric Cinema Cafe

Come worship at the Temple of the Lyric! In case you haven’t hard, the Lyric Cinema Café — Fort Collins’ only independent movie theater — is building a new location at 1209 N. College. The new theater will be bigger and better, but promises to retain that eclectic charm you know and love. The new theater won’t be completed until late 2017, but The Lyric will move this coming March. “But how will we see quality independent films?” you ask. Never fear, cinephiles! Lyric will be operating a pop-up theater out of the Masonic Temple on Oak Street starting in mid-March. Before the move, join The Lyric at its current location at 300 E. Mountain Avenue for one last New Year’s Eve bash! The theme this year is The Apocalypse, so bring your steampunk goggles, your water purifiers, and your zombie repellent. Admission is only $5 and there will be champagne (of course)! 8pm, lyriccinemacafe.com.
