Drake, Miguel, Future: Barclays Center, October 28, $59.75
If you're looking for a massive hip-hop event that doesn't involve an actor dressed up as Jesus, then Drake's Barclays Center appearance is for you. (The "Would You Like A Tour" title is basically the bashful anti-Kanye of tour handles.) With help our favorite awesomely coiffed R&B star Miguel and the rapper Future, this promises to be a good night out in Brooklyn.
Monday, October 28, 8 p.m., Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue (at Flatbush Avenue); Brooklyn; 212-359-6387.

Chance The Rapper: S.O.B.'s, October 30, $22
The up-and-coming Chicago MC/James Blake collaborator hits the stage at the Soho club S.O.B.'s this Tuesday. Prepare for serious verbal fireworks from one of this year's most talented upstarts.
Tuesday, October 29, 9 p.m., S.O.B.'s, 204 Varick Street (between King and W Houston Streets); 212-243-4940.
M.I.A.: Terminal 5, November 1, $35
Maya Arulpragasam is dropping her much-hyped fourth album, Matangi, on November 5, and we couldn't be more excited. Friday's show at Terminal 5 will likely offer a selection of new tracks and old favorites from the fiery Sri Lankan.
