Beyond the runways, a smattering of musical acts should also provide fashionable entertainment this week, beginning with Cat Power’s — aka Chan Marshall’s — gigs around town. Marshall’s haunting voice and tough chic style provide an antidote to all last season’s polish. Meanwhile, Dopo Yume, one of the city’s sexier boy bands, plays directly to the fashion crowd with their poppy, flirty rock ’n’ roll.

This week will also see the release of two stylish albums: Courtney Love’s long-anticipated comeback, “America’s Sweetheart,” and Kylie Minogue’s “Body Language,” her ninth studio album, which is already climbing pop charts in the U.K.
Cat Power: Feb. 13 at Northsix, Feb. 15-16 at the Knitting Factory.
Northsix, 66 North Sixth Street, Brooklyn.
Knitting Factory, 74 Leonard Street.
Dopo Yume: Feb. 12 at Mercury Lounge, 217 E. Houston St.
