- This might be the best $1.98 you’ll spend all week: Back in the ’80s, Washington go-go legends Junkyard Band released a couple tunes — maybe the band’s best couple tunes: “Sardines” and “The Word” — through Def Jam Recordings. Now, those songs are finally available on iTunes.

- In last Friday’s Post, David Malitz wrote about Beauty Pill’s “The Immersive Ideal,” an album that was recorded (in public!) at Artisphere last year. Now, the album is complete and will be streaming in the arts center’s black box theater until January 22. The event kicked off with an opening reception on Saturday night and the music sounded amazing. Go.
