Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — For those over 21 years of age, a Pub Crawl will take place, most stops will have live music and no cover charges.

A 10-foot Gibson guitar will “drop” from a new location in downtown Niagara Falls on New Year’s Eve Monday night as the Hard Rock Cafe continues its fourth annual tradition of ringing in the new year with a full scale indoor/outdoor celebration in and around Old Falls Street.

The guitar will descend from the Giacomo Hotel and two national artists will perform for a free concert on Old Falls Street. When the guitar drops, concert attendees will be able to see it from all vantage points on Old Falls Street.

The free outdoor concert will feature mulitiplatinum rock band Everclear and special guests, Eve 6. Also performing are The Albrights. The free outdoor show starts at 8 p.m. with the guitar drop and fireworks at midnight.

The live music will welcome the midnight hour when the 10-foot Gibson guitar, painted by local artist Rob Lynch and illuminated by Ken-Ton Electronics, will be lowered off the Giacomo Hotel.

Additional outdoor festivities will include food and beverage concessions, as well as a fireworks display at midnight. In addition, there will be a “Guitar Drop Gala” at the Quality Inn Hotel and there will be live music and table service available inside the Hard Rock Cafe.
