If you go to one concert this week, make it: The battle of the pop starlets, Rihanna and Ke$ha, when they land at Jiffy Lube Live on Friday. Could this show possibly be un-fun? (B.Y.O. fluorescent face paint.)

If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: The new disc from Michigan techno maestro Matthew Dear. Dark, ominous stuff -- and you can dance to it.

And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: The much-anticipated return of Interpol. What will the troupe sound-slash-look like now that bassist-slash-mascot Carlos D. is no longer in the fold? The band performs on Letterman, Tuesday.
