Coda: More and more McCartney

paul mccartneySir Paul McCartney: Gershwin Prize winner, Detroit Red Wings fan.

When Paul McCartney is in town to receive an award and perform - along with many famous fans - at the White House, you can expect that to dominate the week's coverage. First there was a Tuesday performance at the Library of Congress. Then there was the proper awards presentation at the White House on Wednesday. A-list performers such as Dave Grohl, Herbie Hancock and the Jonas Brothers offered some extra thoughts on Sir Paul. And we checked in on the accuracy of last week's predictions on who would play what. In non-McCartney news there were some other big shows in town. The 9:30 club celebrated its 30th anniversary with a very memorable bash featuring the likes of Grohl, Ted Leo, Bob Mould and Trouble Funk. (View a full photo gallery.) And Taylor Swift was in town for two shows at Verizon Center. In between standing and staring a the crowd for minutes at a time, she played all of her irresistible pop-country hits. (Full photo gallery.) And we ended McCartney week the only proper way - with a Backstreet Boys interview! See you next week.
