Week ahead: Heavy Cream congeals in D.C.; DJ Quik visits Fallon; the triumphant return of the band whose name we can’t print

If you listen to one new album this week, make it:David Comes to Life,” the new album from that Canadian punk band whose name we still can’t print. David Malitz has the full review tomorrow morning on Click Track.

If you go to one show this week, make it: Nashville smoke bomb enthusiasts Heavy Cream when the band performs at the Black Cat on Sunday. Check out the video for “Watusi” above. Summertime!

And if you stay up late to watch one artist on television, make it: The great DJ Quik when he visits Jimmy Fallon on Friday. Unlike the folks behind this annual serving of YouTube wonder, NBC will hopefully spell the man’s name correctly.

Chris Richards has been the Post's pop music critic since 2009. He's recently written about the bliss of summer songs, the woe of festival fatigue and a guide on how to KonMari your record collection.
