The Rising Sons help Alley Katz celebrate 10 years and 2005.
Owner Chris Gonzales calls them "100 percent rock and roll" and says he's excited to have such a high energy act help celebrate the club's staying power. It hasn't been easy. "When we first started, we were the seventh music venue in the Bottom, and now we are one of, like, two businesses down here." The club celebrates its virility with giveaways like gift certificates to Plan 9 Music, a bike and a lifetime pass to any Alley Katz show. Supercomp headlines with Jason and the Vacations and The Rising Sons Friday, Dec. 31, 9 p.m.-3 a.m. Plus a balloon drop. Tickets are $10. 643-2816. Carrie Nieman
