Cloud Nothings/YouTube

Another year has come and gone with 2017 on its way out and 2018, and whatever it may bring, looming ever closer. We still have some time left to take in some live music before the year officially comes to a close, and New Year's Eve is the perfect time to do it. After all, is there a better way to say goodbye to one year and welcome the next? And Cleveland and Akron have plenty of concerts happening for New Year's, from jazz singers to local bands. So put on your finest, pop some champagne, and get your tickets to have a fun, memorable holiday.

Led Zeppelin 2
Dec. 31 @ 9 p.m.
House of Blues - 308 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH 44114

You can always count on the House of Blues for live music, and, of course, New Year's is no exception. And when it comes to acts that we sadly can't see live anymore, tribute acts can be the next-best thing, so if you're a Led Zeppelin fan, Led Zeppelin 2 is a great alternative. They'll be joined by AC/DC cover band Night Prowler. Tickets are on sale now for $20 in advance, $25 at the door, or $30 for reserved balcony seating.
