Mugison, whose eclectic sound has earned him comparisons to Beck—and who we personally think has the craziest falsetto we’ve heard in a while—plays at DC9 with the local band Bellman Barker opening. Another one-man show in town this week is Ben Folds. Way to Normal, Folds’s latest album, goes on sale at the end of the month, and the piano man brings his blend of catchy pop tunes to DAR Constitution Hall.
At the Black Cat, Brooklyn takes the stage with fellow bands Oxford Collapse and Takka Takka on Thursday. Friday night, the Gossip Girl contingent—we’re hoping to spot (ha ha, get it?) a crowd of Blair Waldorf look-alikes—takes over the club as the Virgins open for the Black Kids.
