Monday: Kings of Leon
These musicians from Tennessee—three brothers, in fact—play rollicking guitar music with a Southern rock flair. Bonus: they put on a huge live show. Extra bonus: They’re playing with two other great bands, We Are Scientists and the Whigs. Certainly a show worth checking out. Tonight at DAR Constitution Hall. 7 PM; $37.50

Tuesday: Mates of State
You don’t get more pure pop than Mates of State, the husband and wife duo that churns out addictively tasty melodies with lush layers. Hear them for yourself live tonight at the Black Cat. 8 PM, $15.
Wednesday: Coming Attractions Trailer Night
Let’s be honest: A lot of times when we head out to the theater, the trailers end up being our favorite part of the experience. Lucky for us, we can head to the D.C. Film Society’s Coming Attractions Trailer Night at the E Street Cinema, where they’ll screen trailers from upcoming movies like “Quantum of Solace,” and “Twilight.” $8; 7 PM.

Thursday: Post-Election Win Party
