Week ahead: Jamey Johnson smiles for the cameras; Best Coast comes east; Robyn drops album sequel
By Chris Richards
If you go to one show this week, make it: Well... Let us rephrase the question. If you didn't score tickets for Lady Gaga on Tuesday night, console yourself with a coin-flipper on Wednesday. Heads: Go see California slack-rocker Bethany Cosentino, a.k.a. Best Coast, when she visits Rock & Roll Hotel. Tails: Go see one of the greatest rappers walking this planet, Big Boi, when he performs solo at 9:30 Club.
If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: "Body Talk Pt. 2" by Robyn, her second installment in a trilogy of discs to be released in 2010. Ahem, Maxwell.
And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: The most powerful new voice in country music, Jamey Johnson. The bearded troubadour swings by Letterman on Thursday night.
