You thought the New Year's festivities were over, right? Think again.

The party will go on at the River Street Jazz Café in Plains Township tomorrow; it's just that instead of looking to the future, things will head back to the past.

Local band Ol' Cabbage will perform Phish's 1996 New Year's Eve performance, the second Phish tribute show for the group.

Ol' Cabbage decided to head in the original-music direction in 2009 after retiring from the cover scene. The new sound is a combination of all the members' talents, making for a twist on the classic jam, rock and jazz sound.

Jim Reynolds and Tim McDermott have access to some of the best recording equipment out there, yet the album they just released takes sounds and looks from days of yore, when recording wasn't so high-tech.

The Push, as the duo calls itself, will celebrate the release of its first album, Greatest Hits Volume One (just another fun tidbit from the tongue-in-cheek act), at the TwentyFiveEight Studios in Scranton at 6:30 tomorrow night.

The concept album plays to The Push as a band of the late '70s/early '80s, and the writing is meant to encompass an entire career. The songs all have record crackles. A special filter allowed the recordings to take on the tone of a track recorded to tape before it got transferred to disc.

The packaging takes on the same wear, looking as though there's a permanent record-shaped crease on the cover and back, complete with a design that takes listeners back to the '80s.

The show also will deliver the sounds of Graces Downfall, Maybe Someday, the Switch and Farley.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Newtown (Conn.) Youth and Family Services.
