Motown on Mondays
Prozack Turner has certainly made good on his promise to “avoid the Top-40 hip-hop trap” at Legionnaire Saloon, his new Uptown bar. The venue’s parties showcase a wide variety of genres — disco, country, and more — and it recently began hosting one of the Bay’s longest-running weekly events, Motown on Mondays. Started in San Francisco in 2009, Motown on Mondays has since spread to Los Angeles, New York City, Austin, Honolulu, and now Oakland, and brings together young and old fans with its mix of Sixties soul, doo-wop, and R&B. At Legionnaire Saloon (2272 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), DJs have included Pam the Funkstress of The Coup and J-Boogie, and this week will feature DJ Fuze of Digital Underground. Fuze helped produce some of Digital Underground’s biggest hits, including “Freaks of the Industry,” “Doowutchyalike,” and “The Humpty Dance,” and has collaborated with Tupac and The Luniz, but he’s also made a name for himself as one of the Bay’s most eclectic cratediggers, amassing a collection of soul, house, and world music. Expect him to dust off some of his best records for the occasion. free

The Jet Set
The son of a Guatemalan mother and Salvadorian mother, Erick Santero grew up in Panama and Costa Rica, studied in Puerto Rico and Cuba, and poached a lot of his musical knowledge from Latin scenes in New York. So it's no overreach for Santero to say he gets around Latin America, or that he tends to eschew borders. His fan base is centered in the Bay Area, for sure, but it's also spread throughout the Latino diaspora, as is his palette. As a DJ, he's known for mixing contemporary hip-hop with vocal samples filched from Cuban singer Celia Cruz, bachata rhythms that originated in the Dominican Republic, and cumbia styles of the Caribbean. His weekly world music party, called The Jet Set, features grooves from throughout the Americas, as well as parts of Asia and Africa, with a rotating lineup of guest DJs. Every Wednesday at Luka's Taproom (2221 Broadway, Oakand). 8 p.m., free. LukasOakland.com free
