NYE 2012 Stay East Bay

When: Sat., Dec. 31, 9 p.m.-2 a.m. 2011

It's hard to say whether there's actually a social message bound up in this title (given all the newly launched locavore movements in Oakland) or whether it's just a catchy slogan. Either way, organizer Soul Luciani and his fellow DJs provide plenty of reason not to cross the bridge or the BART tunnel. Among them: DJs Sake One, Platurn, Joe Quixx, Max Kane, and Tim Diesel, each of whom is a headliner in his own right. They'll spin mostly hip-hop, to complement an equally potent house lineup: ManCub, Shissla, Deckard, Kimani, and the typographically adventurous ShOOey. Luciani promises two dancefloors, two bars, and enough overlap to make for a convivial atmosphere. It's much better than spending New Year's in transit. At Oakland Metro (630 3rd St., Oakland) on Saturday, Dec. 31. 9 p.m., $15-$85. StayEastBay.eventbrite.com
