MUSIC—If you haven't noticed, the rise of Compton-based rapper YG has been meteoric. Bouncing onto the scene in 2008, YG's breakout really got hopping with "Toot It and Boot It" (with LA's Ty Dolla Sign), and now Def Jam has released his debut album, My Krazy Life—whose lead single "My Nigga" is a bumping and wicked tribute to his... umm... you know. Needless to say, YG is on the real. WSH

MUSIC—The great progressive bluegrass (some people call it "newgrass," which I refuse to do, because I am not an idiot) trio Nickel Creek have been MIA since 2007, but they're finally back and they have a new album—and tonight, they're playing the Crystal. Due to the whole "seven-year hiatus" thing, it sold out fast—but c'mon. There are ways. EH
