Hot tickets: Drake, Virgin Mobile FreeFest, Dirty Projectors

By Alex Baldinger

Drake comes to DAR Constitution Hall on Oct. 2 (Anthony Mandler)

Music critic Chris Richards already wrote about how awesome this year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest lineup is, so we'll just say that we totally agree and point you in the direction of the upcoming Drake show. The actor-turned-rapper's musical career has taken off in 2010 with the release of his critically acclaimed debut "Thank Me Later," which boasted appearances by Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy and T.I. After playing the 9:30 Club back in June, he will be moving up to DAR Constitution Hall on Oct. 2. Tickets are $50-$65 and go on sale sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
