Justin Bieber makes his acting debut on "CSI"; Rolling Stone snubs D.C. record stores
By Chris Richards
- Justin Bieber made his acting debut last night on "CSI." You can watch clips of his performance above but we're still hoping the Biebs forgets Hollywood and accepts his destiny as a new age drone shaman.
- Rolling Stone has selected the 20 best record stores in the U.S. and two of them are in Baltimore: True Vine and the Sound Garden. What gives, Rolling Stone? No love for D.C.? Someone invite Jann Wenner to Sunday's D.C. Record Fair at U Street Music Hall.
- Tonight, the NEA celebrates its 2010 National Heritage Fellows with a concert at the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda. Musical honorees include Ghanian drummer Yacub Addy, Texas-style fiddler Jim “Texas Shorty” Chancellor, Irish flute player Mike Rafferty, Afro-Cuban drummer Ezequiel Torres and bluegrass icon Del McCoury.
- Or if ear-splitting clatter of the highest spiritual order is more your thing, Japanese noise musician Merzbow performs at La Maison Francaise tonight with guitarist Richard Pinhas. It's the penultimate gig in this year's Sonic Circuits festival of experimental music. (Click Track had a review of Fennesz's gorgeous Sonic Circuits performance earlier this week.)
- And as a festival winds down, a conference winds up. The tenth annual Future of Music conference returns to Washington on Oct. 3. This year, organizers are hosting a benefit concert for victims of Hurricane Katrina at the Black Cat on Oct. 4. Performers include Damian Kulash of OK Go, Jenny Toomey and Franklin Bruno, Hank Shocklee of Public Enemy fame, and others.
