We just welcomed 2011, but looking at the lineup for venues around SF will make you wonder if we're in some sort of time warp to decades past. Snoop Dogg, who made his debut and biggest hits in the early 90s but still remains at the front of the rap pack, is back at The Fillmore tonight, and one of that era's strongest R&B singers, Faith Evans, returns for a show at Mezzanine. Meanwhile, DJ Jazzy Jeff, of Fresh Prince fame, is behind the decks for a party at Mighty. If you're looking for something slightly more modern, fast forward a few years and catch up with Guster, which had its first mainstream success in 1999. Looking for something brand new? Discover the smooth, folksy sounds of Brooklyn's Atlantic/Pacific, or the underground soul electronic dance musing of La Veda. And if you're not scared of some potential nudity and a whole lot of hair, Monotonix puts on a show that could stay with you forever.
