Jessie Ware, Mikky Ekko: Irving Plaza, November 4, $29.40
U.K. pop sensation Jessie Ware's live show just keeps getting better and better. Her upcoming gig at Irving Plaza should be a great chance for new fans to see her in person. Supporting Ware is Mikky Ekko, who has become quite a big name in his own right. This is a double bill you shouldn't miss.
Monday, November 4, 7 p.m., Irving Plaza, 17 Irving Place (between 15th and 16th Streets); 212-777-6800.
Justin Timberlake: Barclays Center, November 6, $54.50
JT returns to NYC still riding high on his massive 20/20 Experience successes. Timberlake's performance at the MTV VMAs was the best part of the night. Imagine what he can do when given two hours. We couldn't be more excited.
Wednesday, November 6, 8 p.m., Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue (at Flatbush Avenue); Brooklyn; 212-359-6387.
