- Get ready for a hip-hop history lesson tonight at Lincoln Theatre. Adam Bradley, author of "The Anthology of Rap," will be joined by Common and Kurtis Blow for a roundtable discussion on the emergence of the genre as a social and political force over the last few decades. The event is free but tickets are required. They can be picked up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lincoln Theatre box office.

- The Beatles catalogue will finally be available on iTunes. Now you can buy "Hey Jude" for a 17th different time.

- Linkin Park survived the rap-rock era and are still going strong. The band's latest release, "A Thousand Suns," has received some of the best reviews of its career. Their 2011 tour will bring them to the Verizon Center on Feb. 10. Tickets go on sale Saturday. In not-quite-similar-but-similar-enough news, My Chemical Romance will make it to the 9:30 Club on May 10. Tickets are also on sale Saturday for that, and it'll sell out immediately.

- Are you more a post-punk than rap-rock or emo-rock person? We've got you covered, too. A pair of originals, Gang of Four and Wire will be hitting D.C. in 2011. Gang of Four will be touring behind, "C O N T E N T," its first new album in 16 years. Catch them at 9:30 Club on Feb. 9. The equally-revered Wire will play the Black Cat on April 7.

- Coachella headlined by the Rolling Stones?
