Week ahead: Now we can all legally enjoy the new LCD Soundsystem album; Janelle Monae on your stereo and TV

janelle monaeWill this be the week Janelle Monae makes herself known to the world? (Evy Mages/TWP)

In concert: It's a chilly and overcast day, so that would make Eluvium a nice choice for tonight at DC9. Expect dreamy, minimalist soundscapes. Dave Matthews leaves the band at home and brings guitar buddy Tim Reynolds to Constitution Hall on Thursday. Country crooner Dierks Bentley will be at Sixth and I Synagogue that same night, with Hayes Carll opening. Jazz iconoclast Mose Allison performs at the Birchmere in support of his first new album in 12 years. It's pop-punk extravaganza at Merriweather on Friday with All Time Low, Boys Like Girls along with relative oldies acts Good Charlotte and Hanson. Weed rapper Devin the Dude comes to Rock and Roll Hotel on Saturday. Will any of his fans be able to put down the bong and make it out to the club? The always-entertaining Brad Paisley hits Jiffy Lube Live on Saturday and brings Darius Rucker along to open. And Saturday's DC101 Chili Cookoff is your chance to eat chili and watch Stone Temple Pilots and Alice in Chains.

In stores: The new one (last one?) from LCD Soundsystem is finally, officially happening. Read Chris Richards's review in the paper and on this blog tomorrow. "The ArchAndroid," the long-awaited album from Janelle Monae sure sounds like a breakout hit. Will the public agree? Other reviews tomorrow - Band of Horses, Damian Marley + Nas and the heavily-hyped Sleigh Bells. (We know, it came out last week.) Other notable new ones include albums by the Black Keys, "Love & Its Opposite" by Everything But the Girl's Tracey Thorn and that deluxe reissue of the Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street."

On TV: "Kimmel" looks to have the most interesting guests this week -- Reflection Eternal f. Estelle (Wednesday), Slayer (Thursday) and Massive Attack (Friday). Janelle Monae will be on "Letterman" Tuesday. He's also got Band of Horses on Thursday and Brooks and Dunn with Reba McEntire on Friday.
