A visit from the UK on this rainy, dreary Monday: Leeds dubstep producer Rusko recently released his first full-length album, Songs, off Diplo's Mad Decent. Billboard reviews: "The 48-minute collection zooms through throwbacks to early Euro rave and house, reviving the unabashed, giddy quality of those first-wave years." The 27-year-old's not slowing down either, with a collaborative release with Cypress Hill scheduled for release June 5, and an EP of "ambient, minimal techno" out under an alias later this summer. Rams Head Live. Sigma opens. 8 p.m. $27.
SOLD OUT: The Cranberries at 9:30 Club.
California-based ALO's fourth album Sounds Like This, released off Brushfire Records, doesn't disappoint with creatively inventive tracks. Singer-songwriter Chris Kasper opens the show at U Street Music Hall. 7 p.m. $20.
