DECEMBER 13

The revolution won’t be televised, and Public Enemy’s latest album didn’t do very well on the charts either; the “Race Against Time” of its recent, underrated Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age now seems out of time.

With Justice System at 7:30 & 11 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $20. (202) 393-0930. (Mark Jenkins)
