People Party 

When: Sat., June 25, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $5 before 11 p.m., $10 thereafter

Of all the house music dance nights in Oakland, The People Party is perhaps the most popular, well-attended, and the most established. Launched in 2007 by DJs Cecil and Be Brown, it favors a very accessible, groove-driven form of house music -- the kind based around hip-hop or reggae samples, with that bedrock "thwump" beat that bleeds into everything. Adventurous, but still tasteful, the DJs find ways to stitch together songs from a variety of genres. Overall, their style is a little more austere than that of the DJs at Bass Time Continuum or Free the Robots, but it's also profoundly addictive. People Party now happens every month at The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland) and usually draws enough people to form lines around the block. Next edition is Saturday, June 25. 10 p.m., $5 before 11 p.m.
