Though it may seem a little early to be making New Year's Eve plans, Will's Pub announced that it'll be throwing a massive block party along the lines of last year's 20th anniversary celebration. The Reverend Horton Heat, who headlined that particular parking lot party, returns for the 2016-2017 transition, along with ex-Dead Kennedys frontman, spoken word artist and sometime Green Party political candidate Jello Biafra. Rounding out today's lineup announcement are J.D. Wilkes' killer Southern gothic rockabilly troupe, the Legendary Shack Shakers, and local country outfit Giddy Up Go. The Facebook event promises more to be announced, but this has already shot up to the top of our possible NYE plans. Tickets are already on sale for $25 at Ticketfly.
