A-Trak's Magic 8-Ball Tour Lands

Magic 8-Ball Tour: Before he became Kanye West's touring DJ, A-Trak won the DMC World Championships (arguably DJing's highest honor) at the very young age of 15. Tonight, the NYC-based beatmaker hits U Street Music Hall with pal Kid Sister and L.A. downtempo dude The Gaslamp Killer. Pre-sale tickets are sold-out but more will be available at the door, so get there early. $25; 8 p.m.

Goth-Pop Princess: With a string of accomplished EPs last year, Zola Jesus established herself as a rising goth-pop talent, recalling singers like Siouxsie Sioux, Kate Bush, and even Bjork. Backed by a live band, tonight Zola brings her big voice and dramatic stage show to the tiny Red Palace, sure to make for an interesting contrast. Aussie no-wave act Naked on the Vague open. $14; 8 p.m.

Politics and Prose: If it's political celebrity you're looking for, head over to Barnes & Noble in Tysons Corner for a reading by Caroline Kennedy. The attorney, author, and very brief Senatorial candidate will discuss and sign copies of her new book, She Walks In Beauty: A Woman's Journey Through Poems. The store expects a big crowd, so it's best to show up well before the 7 p.m. start time. Free.

Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck every day by peeping Play's Dance Card.
