HOLIDAY: New Year's Eve events 

Wednesday, Dec. 31

It's New Year's Eve, so you've got to party. Listed below are just a few cool ways to spend your night. Be sure to read CL's New Year's Eve guide for more details on parties, concerts, dinners and other special events.

• You know time has got to be involved -- and not just a year -- when the Breakfast Club prepares to celebrate the coming of 2009. That's where the club's Back To The Future Bash comes in, set to introduce 1989 to 2009. The event is hosted by 107.9 The Link's Bandy Boo O'Brien and gives those attending access to all three levels of the club. It also offers the usual celebration finds, including party favors, a champagne toast and a confetti blast at midnight. In addition, the club is located in a spot where you'll have no problem viewing the skyline for Uptown's firework display. $20 before Dec. 30; $25 after; $15 for members. 9 p.m.-2 a.m. The Breakfast Club, 225 N. Caldwell St. 704-374-1982.

You don't need alcohol on New Year's Eve ... not when you've got First Night, an event offering a variety of family-friendly entertainment. The festivities include performances by Charlotte Symphony Brass Ensemble, Charlotte Dance Festival, SlamCharlotte, the Fettuccini Brothers jugglers, Gay Men's Chorus of Charlotte and plenty of others. And just think, you'll roll in the New Year, remembering it all. The First Night Button is your ticket to the event, $10 each; Free for children under 12. First Night held Uptown at Trade St. and Tryon St. 3 p.m.-12 a.m.

Want to spend your New Year's Eve rockin' out in Charlotte's local music scene? Well, no worries since the Q.C.'s indie-rock act The Sammies are set to perform at Snug Harbor. 10 p.m. Snug Harbor, 1228 Gordon St. 704-333-9799.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
