9 p.m., Afterthought. $20.
For those who like to take their dose of rollicking gypsy folk rock seated, the Afterthought is the spot on New Year's Eve. The Munks
, long one of Little Rock's finest live acts, offer a lengthy set that's sure to be filled with songs from their two fine albums, “Heartbreak Numbers” and “Sing Dirty Songs,” and a handful of tasty covers. They're led by pianist and vocalist Aaron Grimm (of the Tom Waits vocal school), with drummer Brooks Browning, pedal/steel guitarist Alex Piazza, violinist Bennett Ryel and bassist Rich Dwiggins. The cover charge includes party favors and a champagne toast. There'll also be all sorts of food and drink specials.
