Care for a New Year’s Eve toast with a soupcon of global flava? Look to all parts of the Bay for sounds that move to south-of-the-equator riddims.
Get on the Latin funk express with Trinidadian rhyme-slinger MC Fresh4Life. The acclaimed Non Stop Bhangra crew open up with a good dose of banging South Asian beats. Also slated are the Pleasuremaker Live Band as well as special guests and, one hears, treats. 9:30 p.m., $15-$25. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF. (415) 552-7788, www.elbo.com
