7:30pm @ the orphanage (5523 cornwallis, apt 2)
all ages! 5$ or pwyc

THE OFFICIAL SUCKERS - self described as "north end queer panic folk small-stars"... piano & guitar playing jerks who only appear live twice a year...
THE RISE - the punkest kids from moncton playing the punkest inspired folk the maritimes has to offer. give them your beer!
TODI STRONGHANDS - solo punk pop dude singing alone. sounds like playing punk power chords on an acoustic guitar while someone reads you a perzine. you could google him I bet.
JAKERY - our friend who went away to the west coast for a year & came back all fucked up on roadkill. queer honest little ukulele tunes asking you to just... "have a time".
BLESS YR HEART - a weirdo from ontario who has been creeping around in halifax undetected by punks for too long. the most sober four square player you'll ever meet.

the third orphanage new years eve show in a row. this will be a very special night. expect drunken sing alongs & a strong smell of garlic & sweat as you cram close together in a tiny apartment to curse 2012 & prepare for the final year of all of our lives.
tell your friends if they're cool. no shits allowed. bring a few gold ones for the rise who are not from here & would like to go home back to new brunswick all hungover in the morning.
