First Night Boston - Mike Daisey, When The Clock Strikes

Mike Daisey, described by the New York Times as "the master storyteller" weaves together a performance on the turning of the year: that bizarre annual ritual when we drink too much, resolve to change everything about ourselves, and have much less fun than we are certain we should be having. With incandescent wit and heart he'll explore our obsession with the future, hilariously skewering our assumptions all the way, and and carry the audience with him right up to the brink of a brand new year.

First Night Boston - The New York Dolls

Punk rock legends once again go where no punk rock legend has likely gone before – NEC’s spectacular Jordan Hall. The 70s gender-bending, glam rock pioneers, The New York Dolls make their First Night debut. Building on the Rolling Stones' dirty rock & roll, Mick Jagger's androgyny, girl group pop, the Stooges' anarchic noise, and the glam rock of David Bowie and T. Rex, the New York Dolls created a new form of hard rock that presaged both punk rock and heavy metal.
