Tease up your beehive and get down to the Love Shack with The B-52’s at a free NYE celebration in the Theater District on New Year’s Eve, Thursday, December 31, 2015.

Throw on your post-punk thrift store duds to ring in 2016 with the B52’s, as the “world’s greatest party band” bring their timeless hits and infectious party music to the city’s fun-filled, free and family-friendly night of celebration throughout Houston’s Theater District.

Come and enjoy numerous attractions and activities including performances on the outdoor mainstage (on Smith at Capitol) and both stages at the Wortham Center and the Alley Theatre. The programming at the Wortham Center will feature Broadway Singalongs along with some smooth jazz and a magic show perfect for kids and adults alike.

The newly renovated Alley Theatre will showcase the chronicles of David Sedaris’ experience as a worker in Macy’s SantaLand display in cult classic, The Santaland Diaries (for mature audiences only) while world-class percussionist and bandleader Pedrito Martinez is sure to have guests dancing in their seats.
