Wicked Liz & the BellyswirlsIf your Mondays are anything like ours here at the River Cities' Reader, they're probably not the cheeriest days of the week. But I think I can speak for everyone here in saying that the next couple of 'em might not be so bad. Work on Monday, December 24, and then - blam! Day off, baby! Work on Monday, December 31, and then - blam! Really lethargic and cranky day off, baby!

But before the inevitable surliness of January 1, 2008, commences, there's Monday night to consider, and the following is a list of venues offering New Year's Eve musical entertainment in the Quad Cities and surrounding areas, along with information - as of press time - on times, prices, and what sorts of New Year's treats you can expect. You folks like champagne, I hope? (Many thanks to Reader interns Caitlin Healy and Elizabeth Woolley for their help in amassing the listings.)

Happy New Year from the entire Reader staff!
