THE ROOTS: Yes, it's great to bump their music in your car or home stereo, but nothing compares to seeing The Roots perform live. Jump right in to 2010 with ?uestlove and Black Thought tonight at The Warfield, starting at 9 p.m. What better way to kick off the new year than with mind-blowing, body-shaking music?
PARTY PEOPLE...: Can y'all get funky? Hopefully the answer to that musical question is a resounding yes, because tonight Club 6IX presents Planet Rock New Year's Eve 2010: A Bass Odyssey. Afrikaa Bambaataa headlines this ridiculous night of hip hop, electro, reggae, dance hall, club hits and classics. If you don't plan on working up a sweat, don't bother showing up to this one.

BALLROOM BLITZ: Classical dancers want to ring in the new year too! Bring out your inner Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire tonight to the tunes of Paul Price's Society Orchestra. Starting at 8:30 p.m. waltz, foxtrot, tango, and charleston at the Masonic Center Ballroom in Palo Alto. [funcheapSF]
