Staff Pick

Ann Arbor’s London Beck is a perfect storm. Burlesque-pop and hip-hop come together with loungey dance-floor jams for Beck’s recently released six-track Drift EP, on which Beck channels the Weeknd and Ariana Grande with hip-rolling musings on intimacy and late-night decisions. Curiously, their background is a bit more traditional, as Beck has spent most of their life playing piano by ear and close to nine years playing the viola — and a brief stint at New York University as a viola performance major, which might explain Beck’s penchant for complex and lush arrangements. Atlanta-based artists Mebo and Myleage are also on the bill.

Doors open at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7; 208 S. First St., Ann Arbor; 734-996-8555; Tickets are $10.
