Ed Sheeran: Yet another twenty-something British star, whose strong new album X and especially the single “Sing” finds this erstwhile folkie rapping and singing in falsetto as if he were the British version of Justin Timberlake. We’ll take it! Budding new British band Rudimental opens.

Jamie XX

Jamie XX: Jamie Smith from the hot British indie-pop band the XX drops by the 9:30 Club to DJ a show, presented by U Street Music Hall, expected to be filled with haunting electronica, and including a couple new tracks by Smith himself.

Friday, Sept. 5. Doors at 10 p.m. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V St. NW. Tickets are $20. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com.
