The Weeknd at House of Blues

Friday, June 15, at House of Blues

Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, has been mysteriously brewing since he started recording and uploading songs to YouTube in 2010. Drake gets a lot of credit as the tipping point for his popularity, but I'd argue The Weeknd's trilogy of free releases — House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence — speaks for itself. It's sex, drugs and R&B, and I could go on and on about the production value, but the best description I have heard is this: "The Weeknd is music to have sex to ... with someone you shouldn't be having sex with."
