WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  The Conjuring 2 tops the chart with 40.4MM, which means it should make a profit in theatres if it comes anywhere close to the original's global sales, despite doubling the original's budget to 40MM. Warcraft places with 24.4MM, which looks like a bomb against a 160MM budget... but it's taken in a massive 261.8MM in overseas markets already, so maybe not.  Now You See Me 2 shows with 23MM against a reported 90MM budget, placing it in the ranks of so many underperforming sequels this year. You know, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which skidded 58 percent to take 14.8MM in the fouth slot. And X-Men: Apocalypse, which rounds out the Top Five with 10MM on a 56 percent drop; although I thought it was alright, it may end up the second-lowest grossing installment of the series (First Class, which is ironically one of the better installments).

... with THE BANGLES!  There's no better way to start than with these live takes on "Hero Takes A Fall"  and Kimberley Rew's "Goin' Down To Liverpool" for Dave in 1984. It was that sort of rawk (and the hotness of Susanna Hoffs) that got Prince to give them "Manic Monday," their first mainstream hit, from the A Different Light album, which included Jules Shear's "If She Knew What She Wants," Alex Chilton's "September Gurls," and -- inevitably -- Liam Sternberg's "Walk Like An Egyptian."  Nevertheless, their fondness for the genres of the mid-60s was still evident in their take on Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter" for the Less Than Zero soundtrack, and the psych-garage-bubblegum of "In Your Room" on the Everything album, which yielded their final No.1 hit, "Eternal Flame."  The draw from the 60s is a constant I saw them in a club, on a big stage and in a club again -- the last time was at a House of Blues, where they covered the We Five's "You Were On My Mind."  However, I'll confess that I put off featuring the band for about a bit, until the Susanna Hoffs solo cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" popped back up on the Tube after an absence. That woman knows how to shake her tambourine.
