Week ahead: Aeroplane helps open U Street Music Hall, another album from Drive-By Truckers
In concert: Sold-out shows all over tonight -- Janelle Monae, John Hiatt, Megadeth -- so why not check out Click Track faves YACHT at the Rock and Roll Hotel? Spot David and win a prize (TBD). Dreamy French electronic duo Air plays 9:30 club on Wednesday but our Euro-electro pick for that night is Belgian DJ duo Aeroplane, who will christen D.C.'s latest nightlife hotspot, U Street Music Hall. Garage rock rabblerousers Black Lips are at the Black Cat Friday; get there early for Box Elders. And heavy metal underdogs-turned-winners Anvil rock the 9:30 club on Saturday.
In stores: Look for reviews tomorrow of new ones by Southern rock torchbearers Drive-By Truckers, gospel star Marvin Sapp and Australia's finest, Eddy Current Suppression Ring. "Under Great White Northern Lights," the live set from the White Stripes also comes out this week. And check out the self-titled debut from Vermont fuzz-pop trio Happy Birthday. Their "Girls FM" song is all kinds of catchy.
On TV: Philly rapper Freeway is on "Fallon" tonight; moody U.K. blog darlings the xx appear on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday, Free Energy will play their fantastic single "Free Energy" on "Letterman." The song is 4:40 long; they get 3:30 on "Letterman." Anybody who was at DC9 last night got a sneak preview of the snipped version that will air on Wednesday.
