Local rappers Tabi Bonney and Wale are road warriors who log thousands of miles criss-crossing the country on tour. They both make hometown stops in October: Bonney performs at DC9 on Oct. 13 in support of his new album, “The Summer Years,” and Wale visits Fillmore Silver Spring a week before the release of his new album, “Ambition.” Electronic music fans are certainly looking forward to November’s Fall Massive at RFK Stadium, and one of the hottest DJs in the world, Skrillex, visits Fur this month. It’s also a good month to take in some icy, female-fronted electro-pop because both Zola Jesus and Austra are in town. And Glen Echo’s Spanish Ballroom hosts a weekend full of Cajun and zydeco sounds with the Dancing by the Bayou Fall Festival.
