Week ahead: Khaira Arby for free; Super Wild Horses great debut; The Specials visit "Letterman"
By David Malitz
If you go to one concert this week, make it: Malian singer Khaira Arby, who is currently on the first American tour of her 20-year career. Backed by a full band her sound combines the desert blues of her home country along with some sizzling electric guitar freakouts. It's a free show Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Millennium Stage.
If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: "Fifteen," the crackling debut from Australian duo Super Wild Horses. Amy Franz and Hayley McKee play stripped-down guitar and drums rock that recalls the best of the Vaselines and the Breeders. The title track is a shoo-in for top 10 of the year.
And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: The Specials on "Letterman" Thursday night. Wear your checkered pajamas for this one.
