Kitchen Dwellers Announce Three Night New Year’s Eve Run in Missoula at The Wilma and Top Hat

Montana’s own galaxygrass favorites, Kitchen Dwellers, will return to Missoula for their biggest New Year’s Eve extravaganza yet, performing an intimate VIP show at the Top Hat on Friday, December 29th, followed by two shows at The Wilma on Saturday, December 30th and New Years Eve, Sunday, December 31st!

The VIP show at the Top Hat on December 29th will only be available for “Three Day Pass” ticket holders so if you want to go to all three shows, please get your tickets ASAP. This will be an Evening with the Kitchen Dwellers — no opener. The VIP package will include a commemorative ticket.

The following show at The Wilma on December 30th (Night 2) will feature an opening set from folk outfit The Last Revel. The NYE proper show on December 31st (Night 3) will be another Evening with the Kitchen Dwellers featuring three whole sets of KD taking us into 2024. Single night tickets will be available for Night 2 and Night 3. A “Wilma Two Night Pass” will also be available which grants you access to both Night 2 and Night 3.

For over a decade, the Kitchen Dwellers have steadily become one of the most exciting bluegrass bands in the scene, consistently touring across the US, growing their dedicated fanbase. Formed in Bozeman, Kitchen Dwellers returned to their roots in 2022 for a 2-night NYE stand at The ELM and followed again in February 2023 for another 2-night stand that completely sold out — a testament to their incredible fanbase, the Dishpit.

The Dwellers have played a bunch of concerts across the state (photos), and are especially near and dear to many Missoulians hearts. Although the band is from Bozeman, their return to the Top Hat is very special, having played some of the first shows in the renovated venue back in 2013.

When the Kitchen Dwellers aren’t blowing minds on stage, they’ve kept busy in the studio, releasing their 3rd full-length studio album, Wise River, in 2022. Get a taste of the album and listen to the tracks “Wise River,” “Drowning (… Again),” and “Sundown.”

If you’re looking for an epic way to ring in the New Year, look no further than the Kitchen Dwellers live and direct in Missoula for a guaranteed epic three nights. Get your tickets ASAP!

Oh and you can feel extra good about purchasing your tickets because $1 of every ticket will be given to PLUS ONE!

About Kitchen Dwellers

Among the many natural wonders in Montana, Wise River runs for about 30 miles through the Southwestern region of the state, cutting through the mountains and flowing into the Big Hole River. Beyond being a favorite spot for fly fishermen, it remains etched into the topography of the land itself.  Two hours away in Bozeman, Kitchen Dwellers equally embody the spirit and soul of their home with a sonic palette as expansive as Montana’s vistas. The quartet—Shawn Swain [Mandolin], Torrin Daniels [banjo], Joe Funk [upright bass], and Max Davies [acoustic guitar]—twist bluegrass, folk, and rock through a kaleidoscope of homegrown stories, rich mythology, American west wanderlust, and psychedelic hues. After amassing 5 million-plus streams, selling out shows, and receiving acclaim from Huffington PostRelixAmerican Songwriter, and more, the group brings audiences back to Big Sky Country on their third full-length album, Wise River, working with Cory Wong of Vulfpeck as producer.
