Common performs at The White House without incident; My Morning Jacket and Neko Case visit Merriweather; Lil Wayne gets unplugged


President Obama and Common last night at The White House. (The Associated Press)
- Our tireless Style superstar Dan Zak reports from last night’s poetry event at The White House: “Despite the protestations of some media figures, a rapper performed in front of schoolchildren Wednesday evening at the White House. Somehow, the Earth kept turning.” A sampling of his lyrics from last night: ““Destiny’s children — survivors, soldiers — in front of buildings their eyes look older,” he rapped. “It’s hard to see blessings in a violent culture.” Here is some video of the event.

- The summer concert calendar keeps filling in nicely. The latest addition is Southern-rock-jam-band-alt-indie behemoths My Morning Jacket, who are pretty much the perfect band to see on a humid August night at Merriweather Post Pavilion at this point in their career. Neko Case opens on Aug. 12.

- MTV will relaunch is on-again, off-again “Unplugged” series on June 12 with none other than Lil Wayne. Consider our interest piqued.
