DJ & Dance

Hot Mess

When: Fri., Jan. 27, 9 p.m. 2012

Oakland is becoming known, increasingly, for its wide-ranging, protean, impressively internationalist DJ dance party scene -- we have the most soulful house; the coolest "hella gay" parties; the twitchiest, glitchiest electronica; and, of course, the deepest bass in our hip-hop. That said, few parties are quite as adventurous as "Hot Mess," a new night helmed by DJs G Star and Pink Narcissus. They promise to blend Hindi pop, Bollywood beats, glitch, Dutch house, Moombahton, 3ball, and a few other styles that seldom grace East Bay sound systems. Based on the sample mixes alone, the event will probably make good on its name -- in a positive way, of course. At Bench & Bar (510 17th St., Oakland) on Friday, Jan. 27. 9 p.m., $3.
