NewYear’s Eve in brief 

At Cornerstone, long time blues-rock jam band Parachute Woman mixes covers and originals, 9 p.m., $5. As they traditionally do on New Year's Eve, the long-tenured cover band the Rockets do a varied set of covers, this time at the Embassy Suites on Financial Centre Parkway. There'll be hors d'oeuvres, party favors and a champagne toast, 8:30 p.m., $60. At Discovery, Platinumb and Jared Lawler spin in the club, while Balance holds it down in the lobby, 10 p.m., $10. Juanita's rings in the New Year with a night of hard rock with local acts Wishtribe and Third Degree, 9 p.m., $15 adv., $20 d.o.s. At Cajun's, party band Typhoid Mary tries to get butts on the dance floor, 9 p.m., $5. From Memphis, '80s cover band Afterglow does fairly spot-on covers of the Cars and Supertramp at Flying Saucer, 10 p.m., $10. The music starts a little earlier than usual at Midtown. Rockers Joey Farr and the Fuggins Wheat Band take the stage around 11:45 p.m., $5. For all y'all philanthropic animal lovers, the zoo is making Cafe Africa into a “cheetah den,” where all the “big cats” will dance and mingle to the sounds of Donna Massey and Blue-Eyed Soul. It's, of course, called Zoo Year's Eve, 8 p.m., $100.
