THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... with THE BYRDS! To everything there is a season, and when the leaves start turning, my thoughts turn to this rare live threefer of "Turn! Turn! Turn!", "Bells of Rhymney" and "Mr. Tambourine Man", introduced by... David McCallum? There are more screaming girls, plus go-go dancers when they hit Shivaree for "All I Really Want to Do" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better."  There are even more dancers when they cover "Not Fade Away" for Shindig! on June 23, 1965, while I'm pretty sure that's Ed Wynn introducing "Chimes of Freedom."

SHEER MAG visits KEXP.

JEFF TWEEDY talks to Stereogum about his friendship with Nick Offerman, Chipotle employees thinking he wrote "I Gotta Feeling," producing, being a TV weather reporter, and more.

THE ZOMBIES: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview. Or is it interviews?

THE NUMBER ONES looks at the Steve Miller Band's charmingly halfassed road-trip jam, "Rock'n Me."

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Rambo: Last Blood, which is currently scoring 36 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Ad Astra, which is currently scoring 80 percent; and Downton Abbey, scoring 85 percent.

THE SONS OF JOHN RAMBO: Stallone created a genre of movies that grappled with post-Vietnam America by returning to the scene, revising history, and blowing up stuff.

Ric Ocasek RIP, Eddie Money, RIP   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

RIC OCASEK, the idiosyncratic songwriter, singer and guitarist for the Cars and producer for bands like Weezer, Bad Brains, No Doubt, and Guided by Voices to name a few, has died. He was 75 (That's right, he was as old as Roger Daltrey and Ray Davies). Rolling Stone has the obit. So let's do this. Some of The Cars' hits were sung by the late Benjamin Orr, but Ocasek wrote virtually all of them, mixing influences from the Velvet Underground to Buddy Holly to Suicide to the Ohio Express: "Good Times Roll," "Best Friend's Girl, "Just What I Needed," "Bye Bye Love," "Moving In Stereo," (Hello, Brad...) "I'm In Touch With Your World," "Don't Cha Stop," "Let's Go," "Candy-O," "The Dangerous Type," "Touch and Go," Shoo Be Doo and Gimme Some Slack," "Since You're Gone," "Shake It Up," "I'm Not The One," "You Might Think,""Hello Again," "Magic," "Drive," and "Heartbeat City." The Cars were inducted into the Rock Hall last year.

EDDIE MONEY, the prolific singer and songwriter whose songs “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Shakin'” and “Take Me Home Tonight” soundtracked popular music in the 1980s, died Friday. He was 70. I'm also partial to "Gimme Some Water."

HOT CHIP, Live at First Avenue, including a cover of the Beastie Bouys' "Sabotage."

NEW RELEASES: Pitchfork will point you to albums from Jenny Hval, Alex G, Charli XCX and more.

ALL SONGS CONSIDERED will point you to tracks from Thom Yorke & Flea, Jim James & Teddy Abrams, Ride, and more.

LIAM GALLAGHER will invite Noel to his wedding.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at Wild Cherry's deeply silly disco jam, "Play That Funky Music."

 

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: It Chapter Two tops the chart with 40.7MM on a 53 percent drop, busting the 300MM mark worldwide (and the franchise past a billion). The real story of the weekend may be Hustlers placing with a strong 33MM angainst a 20MM budget, proving a solid pic for adults can still bring in a crowd, particularly with a diverse cast bringing in multiple fan followings. That said, the B- CinemaScore raises the question of whether this lands closer to Magic Mike or to Striptease. Angel Has Fallen shows with 4.4MM on a 27 percent drop; it has crossed 60MM domestic against a 40MM production budget, but it has yet to debut in foreign markets.  Good Boys takes the fourth slot with 4.3MM and over 90MM worldwide.  The Lion King rounds out the Top Five with another 3.6MM added to its giant pile of money.  If Hustlers is this weekend's good news story, The Goldfinch is its bad news story, debutingat number eight with 2.6MM against a 45MM budget. Also, with 329MM, One Upon a Time... in Hollywood has now passed Inglourious Basterds to become Quentin Tarantino's second-biggest grosser behind Django Unchained.

FELICITY HUFFMAN has been sentenced to 14 days in prison for federal crimes stemming from the massive "Varsity Blues" college entrance scam, plus a fine and community service.
