Future days: Wye Oak plays D.C., Mary J drops a new one, Darlene Love visits Letterman
Welcome to Future days, our weekly Monday column tipping you off to the week's big concerts, album releases and late-night TV performances.
Baltimore duo Wye Oak returns to the Black Cat Sunday, bringing its shimmering folk-shoegaze hybrid to the club's intimate backstage... Tonight at the Velvet Lounge, former Husker Du drummer/songwriter Grant Hart performs in support of his new album, "Hot Wax." Our buddies at Express Night Out got in-depth with Hart, talking about each song on the album... On Friday, jazz-loving merry-makers won't want to miss the annual All-Star Christmas Day Jazz Jam, now in its 12th year at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage.
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige, returns with "Stronger withEach Tear." The usual hodgepodge of producers is present, including Ryan Leslie, The-Dream and Raphael Saadiq. Not much else on the new music front. Unless you're a Mudvayne fan.
This week's "can't-miss" is Darlene Love's annual visit to "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday where she'll perform her timeless seasonal hit, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." Strokes-gone-solo frontman Julian Casablancas visits "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" tonight; if you approve, you can catch him Jan. 12 at the 9:30 club. And wait-is-he-still-controversial? Adan Lambert does his thing on "Jay Leno" tonight. Well, not literally, we don't think. If so, that would certainly be controversial.
