Kingdom may not be a Mind Reader (as his hit song attests), but I am: his party will be nuts.

Besides the voluminous reel around the fountain that constitutes our list of Valentines day events, there are some actually awesome non-single-predjudicial parties going on this week as well. Here are a few neatos for your dancin' feetos. (Gay!)

 

SOFT MOON AT NACHTMUSIK

We here at the Guardian kind of worship the dark wave-related atmospherics of this Oakland gothish shoegaze band. This is a precious live appearance that will draw everyone from the batcave for this Nachtmusik presentation. Thu/10, 9 pm, $10. Milk Bar, 1840 Haight, SF. www.milksf.com , Facebook: Nachtmusik Soft Moon

 

KINGDOM

The hot-hot NYC kid who mixes new school grime and vogue beats with an old school rave sensibility and then chops it all up will drive the stylish crowd bonkers at this 5th anniversary bash for the Lights Down Low party. He'll be joined by NGUZUNGUZU and Acid Girls. Fri/11,  10pm-3am, $10. SOM, 2925 16th St., SF. www.som-bar.com , Facebook: Lights Down Low 5 Year


PART TIME PUNKS

Absolutely rockin' no wave and post-punk hijinks from this cute (and smart) LA DJ duo. They'll be playing for a dancing crowd at Public Works -- and it'll be a night of sharp looks with the Archetype Runway and Trunk Show. Fri/11, 8pm, $10. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. www.publicsf.com , Facebook: Factory Direct

 

LINDSTROM

The Swedish king of space disco put on a great show last time he was here -- we danced, we cried, we flew. Don't miss his special return engagement with local abstract-rock faves Jonas Reinhardt and freestyle artist Corinne. Sat/12, 9:30pm, $15 advance. Mezzanine, 444 Jessie, SF. www.mezzaninesf.com , Facebook: Lindstrom Mezzanine

 


UPROOT ANDY AND JUBILEE

The Brooklyn duo (who perform separately but would make a nice sonic pair) span an international spectrum of dance beats from cumbia to dubstep, which is just what the party they're appearing at, Tormenta Tropical, is all about. And wild dancing! Sat/12, 10pm, $10. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF. www.elbo.com , Facebook: Tormenta Tropical Uproot
