Week ahead: Magnetic Fields, Lil Wayne's "Rebirth"
In concert: Grumpy pop genius Stephin Merritt brings the Magnetic Fields to Lisner Auditorium on Thursday. New album "Realism" isn't the band's finest hour (it would probably rank very last if we re-did these rankings), but you're guaranteed to hear plenty of great songs. Across town on the same night Alan Sparhawk-fronted Retribution Gospel Choir gets noisy at Rock and Roll Hotel. Sparhawk's best known for his other band, quiet as a pindrop slowcore heroes Low. And your uncle probably knows, but if not, let him know that Yes is in town.
In stores: Lil Wayne's
highly-anticipated long-delayed rock album "Rebirth" finally gets released. Allison Stewart weighs in with her opinion tomorrow. Throwback Texas rockers Midlake check in with their third album, "The Courage of Others." Tomorrow's reviews include "No Mixtape," the newest from Bun B and "Who I Am," the debut from Nick Jonas and the Administration, which is technically his second non-Bros album.
On TV: Electro-pop standouts Hot Chip will be on "Fallon" Thursday, the same night that R&B "Magic"maker Robin Thicke visits "Letterman." And Kimmel's guests for Friday are listed as Ozzy Osbourne and Barry Manilow. If it was the Grammys, they'd probably make them sing together. That doesn't seem likely in this instance.
