Week ahead: Chuck Brown plays for free, releases 3-disc set; Pavement vs. Colbert for irony championship of world
By David Malitz
If you go to one show this week, make it: The finale of Live on Woodrow Wilson Plaza's three-month series, a free 5 p.m. concert with Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown. The weather and price will be perfect. I just saw him and his full band play a Not-So-Tiny Desk Concert at NPR last week and everything was sounding fantastic. You get to leave work a bit early. Should I go continue?
If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: A double Chuck week and pick up his brand new 3-disc set, "We Got This." It contains an EP with five new songs plus a CD and DVD from a recent 9:30 Club show.
And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: Pavement on "The Colbert Report" tonight. And you'll get another chance to catch see them in all their reunited glory on "Fallon" on Thursday. And definitely watch Superchunk - who were awesome at 9:30 Club on Friday - on "Fallon" tonight, too. It's what high school me (OK, and present-day me) would have wanted.
