If you go to one concert this week, make it: Public Enemy at the 9:30 Club on Saturday. The revolutionary rap group won't be one of the half-dozen acts revisiting a classic album at Rock the Bells later this month, but will perform its fiery 1990 call-to-arms "Fear of a Black Planet" at 9:30 this weekend.

If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: The trippy, frightening, mindbending "Oddsac," a "visual album" by Animal Collective that is released on DVD this week. It's about as far from as you can get from "Merriweather Post Pavilion" while still sounding like Animal Collective. Here's an interview we did with director Danny Perez back in April.

And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: When unfunny meets unfunny does it equal funny? Find out when Har Mar Superstar performs tonight on "Lopez Tonight."

Har Mar is still alive? Crazy.
