Palms Playhouse, 9:30 p.m., $35
This calendar year had its ups and downs much like any other year. For those wishing to kick this year to the curb and get their dancin' feet moving, look no further: Tom Rigney, one of Northern California's most talented fiddle and violin players, will be gracing the hallowed Palms Playhouse stage to effectively usher in 2015. If you're a fan of cajun or zydeco music and like your musical menu on the spicy side, this is one New Year's event that aims to please. Be prepared: This group knows how to engage audiences and keeps 'em moving for hours on end. 13 Main Street in Winters, www.tomrigney.com.
