Twenty-one-year-old Grammy Award-winning R&B singer/songwriter H.E.R. will be one of the few new musical showings on TV this week, performing Monday on Austin City Limits.

On Wednesday, a performance by New York City rock band Parquet Courts from last year will be on the screen again on Last Call with Carson Daly, followed by a replay of a performance by Vampire Weekend — who made it to the top of The Current's Chart Show twice in one month for their latest album This Life — on Friday for The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon.

Other notable new showings this week include a performance by Megan Thee Stallion (Monday), Jaden Smith (Wednesday), and Taylor Bennett (Thursday) all on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
