Tonight in L.A. (December 31, 2012)

Its the last night to see a concert in 2012 - so make a good choice to close out your year.  LA provides no shortage of those on this Monday night.

Ring the new year with beats from your favorite DJs at a handful of quasi-underground events including Expansion NYE with Daedelus, Tokimonsta, Robert Raimon Roy, A. Chal and So Japan or the Stones Throw family that includes Peanut Butter Wolf, Mayer Hawthorne and J. Rocc, amongst others.  Get tickets to Expansion here.

For some above ground dance floor action - consider Zedd and Nicky Romero at Club Nokia, Markus Schulz at Avalon, Pizza Party at The Central SAPC or Sasha at Exchange LA.

The Sunset Strip heats up with some soul stylings courtesy of Vintage Trouble at The Roxy, posse raps from A$AP Rocky at House of Blues and some unique Bay Area vernacular supplied by E-40 at Key Club.  

No list would be complete without consideration for California grown reggae act Rebelution at Hollywood Palladium or mention of Kendrick Lamar's takeover of the Observatory.  Dustbowl Revival hosting "Midnight in Venice" at Del Monte Speakeasy should be some throwback fun as well.
