Week ahead: Wild Flag's D.C. debut; "Gift"s from Chip Tha Ripper; reruns with Chuck Brown

By David Malitz

wild flagWild Flag - the most super supergroup of them all? (Merge Records)

If you go to one show this week, make it: The D.C. debut of the sure-to-be-super supergroup Wild Flag Thursday at the Black Cat. We've been pumped about this band featuring former members of Helium and Sleater-Kinney since we learned of its existence. The first official song has us even more excited.

If you listen to one new recording this week, make it: "Gift Raps," the new, free mixtape from Cleveland rapper Chip Tha Ripper.

And if you stay up late to watch one performance on TV this week, make it: Chuck Brown Friday night on "Last Call With Carson Daly." Sure, it's a rerun from last month, but still -- it's Chuck Brown!
