St. Vincent, the War on Drugs, So Cow, Wayne Hancock, more: Acts on the Rise

In Sunday's Style & Arts section, a bunch of us who write those Live Last Night reviews you read on here every day picked some under-the-radar acts coming through D.C. in the next couple months that we think should be on your radar. Catch them now before they get big. Then when they do get big you can be the annoying person at the show who says, "Oh yeah? Well I saw them when they played for [24 people at the Velvet Lounge]."

St. Vincent - "Actor Out of Work"

The War on Drugs - "Needle In Your Eye"

(Listen to more after the jump.)

So Cow

Wayne Hancock - "Johnny Law"

Drake - "Replacement Girl"

Mika Miko - "Capricorinations"

Ha Ha Tonka - "Caney Mountain"

Jagjit Singh - "Tumko Dehka To"
