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.
