Week ahead: Tribute to TCB's Polo, Jay-Z on "SNL," Canadian supergroups release new albums
In concert: On Monday night there will be an All-Stars of Go-Go Tribute and Benefit for Polo of TCB at Marygold's in Lanham, Md. The singer for the local go-go stalwarts remains in a coma since falling ill during a show on April 10. Experience an emo flashback with Thursday on Tuesday (don't get confused) at the Black Cat. Many of this week's most interesting shows are already sold-out: Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek) Monday at the Black Cat, OK Go Wednesday at 9:30 club, Local Natives Wednesday at Rock and Roll Hotel and Josh Ritter Saturday at 9:30 club.
In stores: You'll find reviews of the following new releases on the blog tomorrow: Court Yard Hounds (two-thirds of the Dixie Chicks), the Hold Steady, Deftones, Toni Braxton and an up-and-comer called Barbra Streisand. In much more exciting news, the greatest band in the history of music - the Fall - has a new one, "Our Future Your Clutter." And it's very, very good. The New Pornographers rebound nicely from a lackluster previous effort with "Together." Broken Social Scene release "Forgiveness Rock Record," making it official Canadian supergroup day. And electronic music mind-bender Flying Lotus drops "Cosmogramma."
On TV: Jay-Z stops by "Saturday Night Live" for the very special Betty White episode. Vegan pizza enthusiast Common performs on "Jimmy Fallon" Friday while Wale keeps going and going, this time stopping by "Letterman" on Friday. And you surely don't want to miss Michael Bolton on "Leno" Tuesday.
