New Year's Eve at the Paramount

With all the clubs and events competing for your champagne dollars this New Year’s Eve, there’s a veritable buffet of enticing venues where you, the discerning partygoer, may choose to spend your evening. But we think there’s no better way to bid farewell to 2008 than with a resounding rendition of the Presidents of the United States of America’ classic “Peaches.” There’s no question the Paramount’s put together the best, most eclectic crowd-pleaser of a New Year’s Eve lineup in the city; aside from the Presidents (whose performance at Sasquatch! last year proved these ’90s favorites can still rock a crowd with energy to spare), Seattle’s favorite hip-hop hybrid, the Saturday Knights, Ben Kweller-esque pop group Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, DJ Cherry Canoe, metal acrobats Monotonix and country music prodigy Vince Mira (accompanied by the Roy Kay Trio) will also take the stage tonight.
