If you see one perfomance this week, make it: The opening set from New York metal quartet Liturgy at the Black Cat on Saturday night. The band is often praised for its enchanting brand of “transcendental black metal” — but that is what our editors call “burying the lede.” Here’s what you really need to know: Liturgy drummer Greg Fox is truly one of the best you could ever hope to see. And sadly, Saturday’s show will be his last with the band. Do. Not. Miss.

And if you stay up late to watch one artist on television this week, make it: Amos Lee, the singer who earned the dubious of honor of having the lowest selling number one album in history earlier this year. He visits Craig Ferguson on Monday. Give him a listen.
