Newport, KY —- Nationally recognized Newport entertainment fixture The Southgate House Revival announced today a whole-house lineup of ten eclectic acts ranging from ska to indie pop set to take over all three rooms housed within the venue New Year’s Eve. Headlining the New Year’s Eve event is locally acclaimed reggae ska group The Pinstripes. Also anchoring the bill are 60s pop-influenced The Guitars and alt-rockers The Frankl Project. The schedule for the evening will be staggered, allowing fans to easily float from room to room to catch a portion of every set. The Southgate House Revival also revealed it will be inaugurating a New Year’s Day festival dubbed Hair Of The Dog Fest which will take place January 1.
In line with The Southgate House Revival’s consistently diverse programming, the two events are oriented toward broad, yet differing audiences. “Our New Years Eve ticket is chock-full of high-energy, youthful acts,” offered Morrella Raleigh, General Manager. “It will be a night of tangible excitement–which is really the unifying motif–and everyone, whether younger or older, into punk or into pop, will no doubt have an absolute blast ringing in the New Year with us.” The Hair Of The Dog Fest, however, takes on a more mellow flavor. “January 1 is also a holiday and worthy of celebration–after all, we’re starting over, turning over a new leaf. This first day should set a precedent for the rest of the year to come,” piped in Manager Bill Furbee, “Since folks tend to really go all-out the night before, we wanted to build a cool event which starts a little earlier and is grounded in solid, roots music.” The Hair Of The Dog Fest begins at 6 P.M. and will be headlined by country music artist Dallas Moore and the Snatch Wranglers. Rockabilly group Straw Boss and alt-country band Frontier Folk Nebraska support alongside four additional acts.
The complete lineup for each event is posted to The Southgate House Revival’s website, and tickets are available in advance online, or in person at The Southgate House Revival’s Lounge bar and at Shake It Records in Northside.
