Since September first, I've been pushing people's buttons by loudly welcoming "the holidays" and talking about putting up decorations, so I don't think it's too early to start thinking about New Year's Eve plans, especially since most of us didn't go out or celebrate much last year. And I think we're ALL excited to put the travesty that is 2020 and 2021 behind us.

Logjam's annual New Year's Eve party has been announced for The Wilma and they're excited to welcome back Missoula's premier bluegrass band, The Lil Smokies! This show always sells out quickly, and tickets went on sale Friday, September 17th, so get 'em while you can at the Top Hat box office, by calling (800) 514-3849, and online. Early bird general admission tickets are just $25 for a limited time here.

Drawing on the energy of a rock band and the Laurel Canyon songwriting of the ‘70s, The Lil Smokies are reimagining their approach to roots music on Tornillo, named for the remote Texas town where the album was recorded. Produced by Bill Reynolds (The Avett Brothers, Band of Horses), Tornillo is the band’s third studio album. Formed in Missoula, Montana, The Lil Smokies have built a national following through constant touring, they have performed at Red Rocks, LOCKN’, High Sierra, Telluride, Bourbon & Beyond, and more.

The NYE Wilma show typically happens in the heart of our town's biggest celebration to welcome in the new year, 'First Night Missoula', however, the two are not associated. Still no confirmation for First Night Missoula this December, only time will tell in these unpredictable times.
