Week ahead: Walkmen saunter into 9:30 Club; Ron Isley returns with new names; Deerhunter prep for top-ten list ubiquity on "Conan"
If you go to one concert this week, make it: The pride of St. Albans, The Walkmen, when the local-boys-done-good bring their billowy rock songs to the 9:30 Club on Saturday night.
If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: "Mr. I," the first solo album album from 69-year-old Ron Isley, better known as Ronald Isley, best known as the leader of the Isley Brothers, also known as Mr. Biggs and perhaps someday known as the Lauryn Hill's duet partner in this fantastic rendition of "Close to You."
And if you stay up late to watch one performance on TV, make it: Georgia rock weirdos Deerhunter when they visit Conan on Thursday. Then prepare to see them on rock-crit top-ten lists through Dec. 31.
