What are you doing New Year’s Eve? That’s what everyone wants to know. If you’re undecided, consider the 2014 RVA Rise New Year’s Celebration at Plant Zero. It’s 10 parties rolled into one. Three different stages will feature the diverse local sounds of Beast Wellington, Mighty Joshua, the Roger Carroll Band, My Son the Doctor, the Photosynthesizers and Canary Oh Canary. That bill in itself is cause for celebration, but when it’s paired with a midnight brass band processional, local beer toast and an RVA sign raising instead of a ball dropping at midnight, you have a recipe for what could be the social event of the season. The party gets started at 9 p.m. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. rva-rise.com.
