THE GIPSY KINGS: The guitar-and-rhythm-driven group is playing New Year's Eve at the new Conga Room, in addition to Tuesday, December 30. We're always grateful when an act plays a couple of nights around a major holiday, in case we're already booked up on the big night... Tuesday, December 30 and Wednesday, December 31. 800 W. Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles. 213-749-0445
AKON: His duets with Ms. Gwen Stefani? That he writes for other artists? His extensive catalog of hits (like "Locked Up") that he's built over just a few years? All applause worthy. Hear the hip-hop superstar at Club Nokia on Tuesday, December 30, 7PM. 800 W. Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles.
FINAL NIGHT: The DWP Light Festival wraps it up tonight. Taken your bundled-up stroll yet? Admired the thousands of lights? Snuggled with your honey under a giant twinkling display rife with Christmasy merriment? Best hop to it... Griffith Park, 4730 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles. 213-367-1255
