...with ROCKPILE, a band that featured old pals Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds cranking out the rootsy pub rock. They seem to be lip-synching o­n "Teacher, Teacher" and "If Sugar Was As Sweet As You," but I had to post 'em 'cause it's Bandstand, which strikes me as just plain odd. This clip of "Heart," featuring Billy Bremner, is also odd at the start.  For actual live performances, here's the band rolling through Lowe's "They Called It Rock," and "So It Goes," plus a cover of Elvis Costello's and "Girls Talk," which many associate more with Edmunds.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Logan went berserker atop the chart with 85.3MM, well ahead of studio projections of 60MM.  As March premieres go, Logan comes in behind only Batman v Superman, The Hunger Games, and Alice In Wonderland.  Given a production budget just under 100MM, this will be a big winner, as Wolverine plays big in international markets.  Get Out places with 26.1MM on a 22 percent drop, much less than the 55-60 percent drops for horror films or even the 35-40 percent drops for critical darlings. The Shack showed with 16.1MM; this faith-based movie attracted some known actors and will likely do pretty well against a 20MM budget.  The LEGO Batman Movie takes the fourth slot with 11.7MM on a 39 percent drop that seems a bit large considering the lack of competition for family films at the moment.  Before I Fall rounds out the Top Five with 4.9MM against a 5MM production budget.
