...with JOE STRUMMER and THE POGUES!  People will be getting their drink and dance on, so enjoy Joe, Shane and the band putting a Celtic spin on "London Calling" and "I Fought The Law" for St. Patrick's Day, 1988. Follow that up with the Dropkick Murphys' videos for "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" (which you may have heard in Martin Scorsese's The Departed) and "The Wild Rover."  Round it out with an Old Grey Whistle Test of my fave Pogues song, "Sally MacLennane," and a Shamrock Shake.

THE WEEKEND BOX OFFICE was the lowest since Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 1998.  That's right; lower than after 9/11.  Pixar's Onward repeated atop the chart with 10.5MM on a 73 percent drop from last weekend.  I Still Believe placed with 9.5MM against a 14MM budget.  Bloodshot showed with 9.3MM (and 10.5 total with Thursday sneaks) against a 45MM budget.  The Invisible Man took the fourth slot with 6MM on a 60 percent drop that looks to be the smallest drop on the chart.  The Hunt rounded out the Top Five with 5.3MM (5.8MM with sneaks) against a 14MM budget (and likely significant marketing cost, given that the movie was already canceled once).

...with ROCKPILE, a band that featured old pals Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds cranking out the rootsy pub rock. Let's start with "Teacher, Teacher" and "I Knew the Bride," along with this clip of "Heart," featuring Billy Bremner, which is odd at the start.  And here's the band rolling through Lowe's "So It Goes," and "Heart of the City," plus a cover of Elvis Costello's and "Girls Talk," which many associate more with Edmunds.
