New Year's Eve parties and events in Boston
The members of local rock band Upper Crust — Lord Bendover, Count Bassie, Duc D'istortion, and Jackie Kickassis — aren't actually members of any royal family. But they are kind of a big deal — the band has played on the "Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and opened for Aerosmith and Tenacious D. See them perform (in big wigs and powdered faces, of course) for the 5th year in a row at Church with Sidewalk Driver and Gene Dante & the Future Starlets.
21+. 8 p.m. $25, $20 in advance. Church, 69 Kilmarnock St., Boston. 617-236-7600. churchofboston.com
