area: Sam Smith, Bootsy Collins and more. Singer Sam Smith brings his sound to an even bigger venue, but alas, still sells it out. (Photo by Neilson Barnard/Getty Images for iHeartMedia). It’s January: Let’s not act surprised that the music calendar seems slow to warm up in the new year.
Instead, expect a slew of acts coming through for another go after a successful 2014. The good news? You’ll have another chance to see breakout star Sam Smith before the Grammy Awards and catch Zola Jesus indoors for a change. This month’s hot shows:. “Stay With Me,” the infectious, four-on-the-floor number that in 2014 closed out every spin class and grooved from the speakers in every coffee shop, not only put Britain’s soulful Smith on the pop-music map, but also won the baby-faced crooner a handful of Grammy nominations. Before the awards show, find two tickets — and a date you want to cozy up with — and catch him at the Patriot Center this month. Buzz factor: 10.

Smith, who’s making his second visit to Washington since the release of his debut, “In the Lonely Hour,” sold out his last performance in D. at Echostage in September. Patriot Center is bigger, obviously, but word is that Smith’s voice holds up well even in large venues.

After the requisite holiday-music shows, the erstwhile Judd will be hitting the road in the new year with her husband, Cactus Moser, and the rest of her band for her “Wynonna and Friends” tour. The country singer is hitting smaller venues, promising a deeply personal, chatty evening filled with tales from her three-decade career in addition to the usual songs. Buzz factor: 9.
Judd doesn’t have an album coming out for a while, though one is in the works. But both of the intimate performances she has planned in the area have already sold out. J an.

With Clinton’s blessing, Collins formed the Rubber Band in 1976 to showcase his own talents, be it delivering funky Christmas music or concept records that blended funk with hints of Frank Zappa-esque esoterica. Buzz factor: 5. The “Tear the Roof Off the Sucker” co-writer doesn’t have a new album to promote (his most recent, “Tha Funk Capital of the World,” was released in 2011), but nevermind that: Collins is a legendary live performer who will know how to bring some heat in January.

$39. 50-$75. Nika Roza Danilova, the artist known as Zola Jesus, last landed her musical spaceship in Washington in October, when she unveiled her hooky, dance-centric new album, “Taiga,” in the courtyard of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. In some ways, it was an ideal setting, given that Danilova’s sound (and stage show) is as experimental and artful as it is pop.
But the acoustics? Terrible for those who were hoping to hear the singer’s soulful, classically trained pipes at work. You’ll be able to get a better listen when she performs at the Black Cat. Buzz factor: 6.
This time, Zola Jesus rolls through town with Deradoorian, the solo project of Dirty Projectors multi-instrumentalist Angel Deradoorian, whose ambient, mildly Gregorian-chant music should pair perfectly with Danilova’s reliably arty sound. Jan. 29 at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St.
