Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd: Madison Square Garden, February 19 and 20, $54.40
With constant Late Night appearances, an extended VMA tribute, and two new albums, Justin Timberlake may have been the most overexposed man in showbiz last year. Even so, there's nothing like seeing JT live, no matter how many times you've seen him goof around with The Roots. It doesn't hurt that R&B lothario The Weeknd is opening.
Wednesday and Thursday, February 19 and 20, 8 p.m., Madison Square Garden, 2 Penn Plaza (between 7th and 8th Avenues); 212-465-6741.
Angel Olsen, Cian Nugent, Jaye Bartell: (Le) Poisson Rouge, February 20, $15
Burn Fire Your Fire For Now Witness, Angel Olsen's new album, is a complete stunner. Don't miss your chance to see the songstress play her blend of chilly folk, fuzzed-out garage, and old-school country.
Thursday, February 20, 6:15 p.m., (Le) Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street (between Thompson and Sullivan Streets); 212-353-3474.
Earl Sweatshirt: Music Hall of Williamsburg, February 22, $25
Introspective, quizzical, often brilliant — Earl's raps just continue to get better. And, though it's our favorite Odd Future member's solo show, who knows who else might pop up on stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Saturday, February 22, 8 p.m., Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th Street (between Kent and Wythe Avenues); Brooklyn; 718-486-5400.
