Golden West Cafe has a handful of good shows this week, but the highlight is easily Joe Lally and Zomes on Saturday. While Fugazi has been on an indefinite hiatus for over eight years now, Lally, the band's founding bassist, has released three solo albums; the latest, "Why Should I Get Used to It," was released in April. Elsewhere this week: Wham City Comedy, Height with Friends, and the Smokers Club tour, starring Method Man and Curren$y.  On Monday , Manchester Orchestra, an indie rock five-piece, perform at the 9:30 club, 815 V St. N.W., Washington.

The latest issue of Spin is a celebration of "Hip-hop's DIY Movement" (with a great essay from Baltimore scribe and former b contributor Brandon Soderberg). There are so many micro-genres splintering in hip-hop that a magazine has to devote a whole issue to cover it properly. The Smokers Club Tour, which stops by Rams Head Live on Sunday night, fits perfectly within this "movement," mostly because of its headliner, New Orleans' stoner Curren$y. First, about that stereotypical "stoner" image - a zonked-out dude passed out with Doritos and "Cops" on TV: it doesn't fly in Curren$y's case.

Funny, I never thought of Cheech and Chong as cinematic auteurs. But based on How High, which casts rappers Method Man and Redman as stoners for a new generation, those pioneering '70s potheads really had their act together. Their movies may not have been masterpieces, but they were consistent and had a central anarchic vision that at least let you enjoy them without looking for a life lesson behind all the haze. How High, to the contrary, seems to be out to teach us something - about intelligence, about effort, about class distinctions.

It's hard to decide what comes through most clearly in "Backstage" -- the power of hip-hop or the anger underlying it. Filmed during last year's Hard Knock Life Tour, an all-star traveling rap and hip-hop festival featuring acts from Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam records, "Backstage" captures energetic performances from DMX, Method Man, Red- man, Ja Rule, Beanie Sigel and Amil. But the movie catches serious fire when Jay-Z commandeers the stage, working the crowd and talking about what's happening.
