Slim Cessna, Yonder Mountain String Band, etc.: Annual New Year’s Eve concerts have become the norm around town. But one of the best this go-round was one that went mostly under the radar: A gathering of area indie-rockers taking turns at the mic before the all-star collective known as Dust on the Breakers rang in the new year at Patrick Marold’s Sculpture Studio in the northwest warehouse district at 4335 Cherokee St.
Hosted by Marold and Jeff Linsenmaier, the party drew a wide array of hipsters to see everyone from Joe Sampson to Nate Meese to Joseph Pope III to Isaac Slade — whose wife, Anna, co-fronts the Breakers. At midnight, Caleb and Isaac Slade led the crowd in a rendition of “Auld Lang Syne.”
