Janelle Monae @ Terminal 5 (more by Matthew Eisman)
Janelle Monae

As performing with Prince and a Grammy performance have recently shown, Janelle Monae is definitely moving upward. It wouldn't be surprising if Of Montreal, who she has opened for on tour in the past, eventually open for her. That won't be happening any time in the near future though, as Janelle will head out on tour with Bruno Mars in May, who she recently performed with at the Grammys.

The tour, which they're calling the 'Hooligans in Wondaland' tour, kicks off at NYC's Roseland Ballroom on May 4 with opener Plan B (who like Arcade Fire, recently took home a Brit, and not long ago played a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom). Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10am.
