Mumford & Sons

Capital One Arena, Dec. 14, $44-$299.

Mumford & Sons’ third album, “Wilder Mind,” was the British folk band’s equivalent of Dylan going electric. “Guiding Light,” the first single from next month’s “Delta,” puts the acoustic guitar back at the forefront. But the band has said the new album adds jazz, hip-hop and electronic influences, too.

Get tickets: Friday at 9 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

An Evening with the Clintons

DAR Constitution Hall, April 27, $99.50-$250.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are the latest politicians-turned-private citizens hitting the road for a speaking tour. For this stop on their 13-city trek, the former denizens of the White House will discuss their political and personal lives, along with the issues of the day.

Get tickets: Friday at 10 am. through Ticketmaster.


9:30 Club, Dec. 29, $25.
