Brandon Wardell live + Yes, but still podcast in the U Street Music Hall: Comedian Brandon Wardell, 26, grew up in Fairfax and began his career as a stand-up in D.C. In 2013, he moved to Los Angeles to devote himself to full-time comedy. He soon opened gigs for Bob Odenkirk, Todd Glass and Bo Burnham and appeared in the Comedy Central stand-up shows. Wardell often deals absurdly with his stand-up and has found a following through social media (his embrace of Mem culture has made him a favorite among younger fans). In June, Wardell released "An ASMR Album," in which he basically whispers his jokes. For this homecoming Wardell will give two shows at U Street Music Hall: a stand-up set and a live recording of his podcast "Yeah, but Still" on Tuesday, which he co-hosts with comedian Jack Wagner. Until Tuesday The doors are open for both shows at 19.00. $ 15

Yaeji at Black Cat: To get a perfect distillation of Yaeji's music, "Raingurl" is just right for you: a rubbery house groove with soothing synths, half-sung and half-whipped in English and Korean, full of hip-hop blues and much, what the musician offers is called "Introspection at the club". The dualities are part of the package for the 25-year-old, also known as Kathy Yaeji Lee.
