If you want to dance, go to a Janelle Monáe concert. The Electric Lady's live gigs are like an otherworldly well-dressed performance art piece, much like her music videos. And the best part of her shows is that sprinkled in between her three album's worth of songs are often impeccable Prince, Michael Jackson, and The Jackson 5 covers. She also tours with a talented backup band who somehow manage to keep up with her insanely fast-paced energy. You'll probably sweat off a few pounds just from watching.
