moe. will take New Year’s Eve off for the second year in a row. A note from the band reads, “We are aware that there has been much rumor and speculation surrounding New Year’s Eve. We have decided to spend the holidays with our families and to gear up for our 20th anniversary year, so there will not be a New Year’s Eve moe. show this year. We hope to see you on Halloween and during the Fall tour!” The band will perform at Toronto’s The Opera House this evening.

moe. was inducted into Buffalo, NY’s Buffalo Music Hall of Fame this Thursday. The group performed the original “Akimbo” at the ceremony.
