Harbor. Free admission but passes, available at select Ralphs and Food 4 Less stores, are required. Information: (213) 485-ARTS.

Fresh off her recent rousing show at the House of Blues, Macy Gray brings her retro soul show to the Arcadia club on the Santa Monica Pier. Information: (310) 260-4807.
And what would New Year’s be without a Red Hot Chili Peppers party (along with 311 and the Bicycle Thief)? At 8 p.m. at the Great Western Forum. Information: (310) 419-3100.
