Our Dan Fogelberg-Free Rundown of the Best New Year's Eves in Town!
POW—Portland's legendary fake wrestling show Portland Organic Wrestling returns for one night to help send off Satyricon in gory, theatrical style.

Satyricon, 125 NW 6th, 8 pm, $7, all ages
HOT LICKS—With a crack team of ace musicians that sound as worn-in and durable as the leather in his cowboy boots, Matthew Houck has made the transition of his band Phosphorescent from lonesome folkie solo meanderings to some of the tightest, shit-kickingest country rock around.

w/Quiet Life; Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12-14
