- That Dave Grohl sure loves his secret shows. The Foo Fighters frontman has given his share here in Washington: A surprise appearance at the 9:30 Club anniversary party here, a full-blown rock concert on the White House lawn there. On Tuesday, Grohl and his bandmates test drove some new material at a small Los Angeles rock club.

- Tomorrow's WaPo Weekend section looks back on the year in local music, highlighting the best local rap, rock and metal releases.

- In other dead-tree local music journalism news, the Washington City Paper's "2010 Music in Review" issue lands on street corners today and there's some excellent stuff inside.

- Taylor Swift didn't top too many critics' best-of lists this year, but her latest album "Speak Now" did manage to bounce back into the top position on Billboard this week. Susan Boyle dropped down to No. 2, while Michael Jackson's vexing new posthumous album debuted at No. 3.
