San Francisco , Calif.— This New Year’s Eve, 2010 will be ushered in at Club Six by the Amen-Ra of Universal Hip-Hop and Electro-Funk music, Afrika Bambaataa of the Mighty Zulu Nation on the wheels of steel and by locally bred, internationally acclaimed, supersonic hip-hop duo, Zion I on the live stage. The bash, named after Bambaataa’s seminal hit, Planet Rock, blasts off at 8pm on New Year’s Eve touching down in 2010 with three rooms pulsating with electronic, urban and jump-up soundscapes with a mass of ecstatic revelers engaged in dancefloor combustion.

In the lower depths of Club Six, where the rhythms rock way past last call, the godfather of the electronic and hip-hop genres, Bambaataa headlines, transmitting frequencies to freak to by way of turntable mastery honed through 35-plus years. Supporting Bam is uber-versatile Rock It Science franchise player DJ Eric Sharp along with Oakland Fader’s turntablist and party mobilizer Enki.

Performing live at midnight in Club Six’s Dark Room is Zion I, made up of emcee Baba Zumbi and producer / DJ Amp Live. Coming off of the Takeover tour and record release of the same name, Zion I celebrates 10 years of music, five LPs and numerous EPs, engorging an ecstatic crowd with sounds simultaneously earthy and futuristic, bombastic and esoteric. Electric hip-hop squad, 40Love, suburban rap queen K-Flay and beatbox virtuoso, MC Radioactive add lyrical calisthenics and 808 beatdowns. Holding down the party rocking duties before and after Zion I’s sonic tempest are Distortion 2 Static DJs Haylow and Beatsme.

In Club Six’s upstairs White Room, reggae-dancehall and culture riddims keep the dance floor sizzling with the bay area’s dancehall standout DJ, Jah-Yzer of Sound Clash champs Jah-Warrior Shelter holding down the top spot on the 1s and 2s. DJ Stepwise of Galang Radio and the North Bay’s DJ Dans One support Yzer, by running the hottest jump-up tunes available in the greater Bay Area.

Recently celebrating its eleventh year just under a month ago, Club Six has been voted San Francisco’s best hip-hop club, two years running, by the San Francisco Bay Guardian Best of the Bay edition. Also having received accolades for a number of monthly parties, Club Six has hosted a wide range of reggae, dub and arts events including Veni Vidi Vici, Surya Dub, DeeCee’s Soul Shakedown and others. In 2005, Club Six was immortalized on the big screen in the nationally released movie Rent and for the past four New Year’s Eves the venue has hosted packed and unforgettable soirees with hundreds of partygoers each night.
