Week ahead: Purling Hiss hits DC9; the Fall’s 29th album; Drake celebrates release day on “Letterman”

If you go to one show this week, make it: Scuzzy and fuzzy Philadelphia psych rockers Purling Hiss at DC9 on Thursday. Get acquainted with the video above.

If you listen to one new album this week, make it: “Ersatz GB,” the 29th (official) outing by the Fall, arguably the greatest band of all time (as long as I’m one of the people in the argument). Here’s an entertaining profile of the band’s cranky constant, Mark E. Smith, from the Independent.

And if you stay up late to watch on artist on TV this week, make it: Drake when he visits “Letterman” on his album release day Tuesday night. I’m interested in what Dave says about the “Take Care” cover photo.
