Mon., Dec. 31, The Alkali Flats
The Hideaway Bar & Grill, 9 p.m., $10
Ring in the new year with friends and loved ones while listening to the Central Valley's prized country five-piece, the Alkali Flats. Grab your midnight kiss and dance into 2013 with tunes featuring lots of old-time charm, authentic honky-tonk appeal, and, yes, definitely plenty of twang. The guys—and gal—of the Alkali Flats have traveled far and wide. Whether it's to Europe or the annual Hillybilly Fest in Los Angeles, they've logged the miles. Also performing are the Sacto Soul Rebels, providing the rocksteady vibes for the evening. 2565 Franklin Boulevard, www.thealkaliflats.com.
