Monday, January 28, at the Granada, 7 p.m. doors.
A show by the aptly named group Murder By Death (murder ballads are its forte) isn't what jumps to mind for a New Year's Eve celebration. But the Bloomington, Indiana, quintet has cultivated a nice, bubbly fanbase in Lawrence. And local indie acts Cowboy Indian Bear and Y(our) Fri(end) ought to add a little life to the evening.
Monday, December 31, at the Granada, doors at 9 p.m., $12 in advance or $15 at the door.
The Golden Republic
Five years after splitting, the Golden Republic reunited for a couple of one-offs in 2011. The glammy pop-punk quartet does it again here with friends in Thee Water MoccaSins, who don't often play together, owing to geographic constraints.
Monday, December 31, at RecordBar, doors at 9 p.m., $12.
Nug Life New Year's Eve
You'll have to ignore the unbelievably terrible name, if you can, but this party has a lot of potential. I saw the reggae dudes in the New Riddim move some serious asses one random Friday night at Harling's earlier this year. And the 1990s-R&B-themed Booty Jamz is on the rise as one of Westport's best dance parties, even though it is totally biting the style of my on-hiatus DJ duo Pussy Monster. (Just kidding - Pussy Monster played only two shows, and nobody paid any attention.) Also on hand: DJ Clockwerk and Pocket Change.
Monday, December 31, at Riot Room, 8 p.m., $5.
See Quiet Corral's cover of Aloe Blacc's "I Need a Dollar" here.
Tuesday, December 25, at RecordBar, 9 p.m., $7.
Another very promising option is the end-of-the-year show at the Roost in the West Bottoms (1100 Santa Fe), featuring the Conquerors, the Devil, Snake Island and the Levitators. For a mere $5, it promises to be psychedelic and rowdy - and perhaps a good way to usher in all of those remaining days.
