NEW YEAR’S EVE AT AS220
The Empire Revue, Providence’s longest-running sketch and variety show, will ring in 2018 by presenting their annual New Year’s Eve variety show and dance party, called “Revue Year’s Eve,” featuring live music from the Superchief Trio at AS220’s Main Stage. The show kicks off at 9 PM and will include a midnight countdown. The Bar at AS220 and AS220 Foo(d) will be open all evening.
The Empire Revue will present a special edition of their monthly variety show on the theme “Night Time Is the Right Time!”. The show is hosted by musician and entertainer Keith Munslow and features special guest acts of all kinds — such as music, stand-up, magicians, dance – you name it! — as well as sketch comedy by the group The Sparkling Beatniks. After the show, the Superchief Trio takes over for a live dance party, featuring their unique combination of two-fisted piano, red hot trombone, blazing guitar, rock solid bass, powerful vocals and frenzied percussion antics. Their repertoire of original tunes in the style of New Orleans R&B, jump blues and boogie-woogie will launch party-goers into the New Year.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at revue-years-eve.brownpapertickets.com. This has been a sell-out show every year, so attendees are encouraged to get tickets early.
