For those who don’t wish to leave the East Bay this New Year’s Eve, Oakland culture blog Wine & Bowties is throwing a dance party featuring a well-curated lineup of DJs at Geoffrey’s Inner Circle in downtown. Wine & Bowties is responsible for the recurring mini music and art festival Feels, the last edition of which culminated with a surprise performance by Iamsu! and dynamic sets by local punk band Meat Market and Atlanta singer Abra, who makes downcast, mercurial R&B. Wine & Bowties is back at it with A Very Intimate New Years’ Eve Celebration, which will feature DJ sets by Young L (of The Pack fame), Nic Nac (an East Bay-bred producer whose credits include Chris Brown’s “Loyal”), producer Alexander Spit, DJs Neto 187 and Shruggs, and others. Wine & Bowties founders Will Bundy and Dispo Max will even be making a rare appearance behind the decks. If you’re looking to dance the night away at a new rap-centric function this New Year’s Eve, this is your spot.
