Chris Brown -- Bieber collaborater, Love re-opener; free holiday presents from Gorillaz, Trey Anastasio, Yeasayer
- Chris Brown must love when the calendar flips to a new year, because each time that happens it gets him further away from his disastrous 2009. In early 2011 he is teasing a collaboration with Justin Bieber. Brown will end his 2010 and start his 2011 here in D.C., as he will be the first performer at the re-opened local mega-club, Love.
- The holiday season inspired plenty of musicians to give away some free music. Among the recent freebies to hit the Internet: an iPad-made album from Damon Albarn-led group Gorillaz (the download is only available for members of the group's fan club or anybody who knows how to use Google); a live, solo set from Trey Anastasio of Phish; a live album by indie jammers Yeasayer; an EP from Brit rockers Klaxons; and a new mixtape from rapper Rick Ross.
- Bernie Wilson, a member of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes during the group's mid-'70s heyday, passed away on Sunday.
