The end of the year is approaching, which means — if you’re not stuck in the house watching popular music show “Kohaku Uta Gassen” with Grandma — it’s time to party hard. For those who like beats, there are tons of dance-music events across the country. We’ve sifted through the press releases and found the ones worth checking out.

Before the new year starts, m-flo (who has announced a new album for February 2013), FPM and Perfume producer Yasutaka Nakata will kick off the end-of-year-party rush at m-flo Bonenkai 2012 at ageHa in Koto Ward, Tokyo, on Dec. 21 (11 p.m.; ¥4,500 in advance; www.ageha.com). For Tokyoites who don’t want to head to Koto Ward for the night, Metronomy member Gbenga Adelekan, aka Olugbenga, will be coming back to Trump Room in Shibuya Ward for a one-off set on Dec. 21 (10 p.m.; ¥2,000 with Facebook discount). Also appearing will be Boys Get Hurt, Give Me Wallets and more.
