Let the vibes flow through your body with the legendary "Gimme No Crack" reggae-rap star Shinehead on the mic and on the turntables at Sebastopol's Hopmonk Tavern. With $3 Red Stripes all night long, try not to get cross-faded from second-hand (or first-hand) smoke. The party starts at 10pm and costs a reasonable $20. Over at Hopmonk's Sonoma location, Loosely Covered plays a special acoustic set of their heaviest tunes. Well, other bands' tunes, actually, hence the band name. Free.

El Radio Fantastique rings in the new year at Dance Palace in Pt. Reyes, but don't be alarmed if it feels like New Year's 1923. This group is full of old-timey surprises and mischievous songs and stage antics. Horns, washboards, pots and pans are all fair game. Tickets are $55–$65.

The Tubes had a couple of hit songs, but they're much more than just some white punks on dope. They're one of those groups for which the magic is the entire live experience; theatrical shows are the norm for these one-in-a-million new wavers. They play at George's in San Rafael with Fee Waybill for $55–$65.

Comedians Michael Meehan, Bill Dwyer and Mark Cordes present an evening of poignant and funny observations about relationships in a Year-End Comedy Show at the Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael. Party and toast in the new year with the comedians after the show. Tickets start at $25.
