The Weeknd

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Under the moniker the Weeknd, Canadian hip-hop crooner Abel Tesfaye is to hip-hop what Nine Inch Nails is to rock -- all debauchery and drum machines and prone to confessing too much about addictions both narcotic and romantic. Couple that with a falsetto as thrilling as Michael Jackson's, and it's not surprising that the one-time American Apparel employee is one of the genre's most compelling acts. The Weeknd began as an anonymous bedroom project, but this month Tesfaye released his first official album, "Kiss Land," and has embarked on a tour of theaters with a three-piece band.
