If you go to one concert this week, make it: One of the young, bizarre, up-and-coming rappers visiting our city. You've got on-the-verge superstar Nicki Minaj performing at DC Star on Saturday; it should be a good opportunity to see her on her own instead of as part of her many, increasingly annoying collaborations. And then there's the Based God himself, Lil B who is scheduled to perform at Fur on Friday and at go-go hotbed CFE Event Center on Saturday.

If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: The latest in the absolutely essential Bob Dylan bootleg series, "The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964," the 47-track, two-disc, ninth volume that features stark takes on many of Dylan's best-known early songs. Read Allison Stewart's review.

And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: Those new masters of head-scratching, Die Antwoord on "Kimmel" Wednesday.
