Sasha Sloan @ Troubadour [Tickets]
Sasha Sloan may have penned for the likes of Camila Cabello and Charlie XCX, but she’s certainly made a way of her own with the delivery of a personal collection of songs entitled Loser back in November. She also appears on Kygo’s popular song “This Town.” Sloan’s voice as well as the intimate stories she shares in her music are more than reason enough to catch this rising singer live.

Young Nudy @ Novo [Tickets]

Hippie Sabotage @ Hollywood Palladium [Tickets]
In 2014, EDM duo Hippie Sabotage made a dent in the music atmosphere with the remix to Tove Lo‘s mega hit “Habits (Stay High).” Their own discography sounds just as good and it’s filled with their signature airy, yet electrifying trap-inspired production. Hippie Sabotage’s “The Beautiful Beyond” trek has been a mostly sold-out affair and their shows are usually packed-filled with pulsating energy.

Summer Walker @ The Fonda Theatre [Tickets]
