Week ahead: Puscifer plays D.C., Raheem DeVaughn releases his "MasterPeace"
In concert: Is our old friend Arizona Bay still around? If so, he'll probably be at the Lincoln Theatre on Friday and Saturday because that's where Puscifer, the new band from Tool frontman James Maynard Keenan, will be. Monday's big show is the sold-out Muse/Silversun Pickups battle of bombast at Patriot Center. Young Jeezy and Trey Songz will join Jay-Z at Verizon Center on Wednesday. Under the radar pick of the week is Philadelphia's Blood Feathers - alternately jangly, fuzzy, psychy and rompy - at the Black Cat on Thursday.
In stores: Sunday Arts & Style cover boy Shooter Jennings releases "Black Ribbons." Peter Gabriel gives us his lame covers album, "Scratch My Back," on which he plays songs by the likes of Bon Iver, Arcade Fire and Regina Spektor. Did you know post-grungers Lifehouse were still around? They are and they've got a new album, "Smoke and Mirrors." And local R&B star Raheem DeVaughn's "The Love and War MasterPeace" finally gets released. Look for a review on the blog tomorrow morning.
On TV: Jay Leno's back in late night and he's got Brad Paisley, Adam Lambert and Avril Lavigne on tap this week. Sounds about right. Highlights from elsewhere: Phoenix on "Carson Daly" Tuesday, Erykah Badu on "Fallon" Wednesday and Spoon on "Letterman" Thursday. And Vampire Weekend plays "Saturday Night Live."
