WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales tops the holiday weekend chart with 77MM, but that's below even the low end of projections (80MM). But it's doing quite well abroad, already past the 200MM mark, which means Disney may yet make money, while Johnny Depp may yet get bad publicity. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 placed with 25.1MM; this may not be as high as Disney wanted for the fourth weekend, but it's still outpacing the original at home and crushing the original in foreign markets, even keeping an outside shot at a billion total. Baywatch shows with 23MM (27MM since opening), which may be The Rock's first stumble in years against a 69MM production budget.  Alienn: Covenant plunges 64 percent to the fourth spot with 13.1MM and suddenly looks like an endangered species. Everything, Everything rounds out the Top Five with 7.4MM, but 22MM total looks alright against a 10MM production budget.

Memorial Day 2017; Gregg Allman, RIP   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

MEMORIAL DAY has become -- in the minds of some -- a day devoted to uncovering their swimming pools and barbeques. So take a moment (preferably at 3 p.m. local time) to remember what it's really about.You can read about "The Meaning of Memorial Day" with selections from American authors and statesmen, including Herman Melville, Ernie Pyle, Louisa May Alcott, Frederick Douglass, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Joyce Johnson and the "Arlington Ladies" who attend every funeral in Arlington National Cemetery, to ensure no soldier is buried alone, take more than a moment.  Re-read "A Death in the Family," as powerful as it was when Christopher Hitchens wrote it in 2007.  Revisit William Wyler's footage of the last mission of the Memphis Belle, or check the Tube for Alfred Hitchcock's footage of the liberation of the Belsen concentration camp.  The Wikipedia entry for Memorial Day notes a race track connection unrelated to the Indy 500.  It's a good day -- as good as we are likely to get -- for Sgt. Barry Sadler's No. 1 smash, "Ballad of the Green Berets."  or the movie adaptation of Gen. George S. Patton's "Speech to the Third Army."  As "Greyhawk" once wrote at the Mudville Gazette, "This is Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy it. Celebrate it - the people who died to give you that right would appreciate it. But they didn't die peaceably in their beds, these dogs who fell protecting sheep from wolves."

GREG ALLMAN, a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, the incendiary group that inspired and gave shape to both the Southern rock and jam-band movements, died on Saturday at his home in Savannah, Ga. He was 69.  The NYT will also hook you up with 10 definitive Gregg Allman songs.  Allman's manager, Michael Lehman, told NPR News Allman had finished a new album, which would be released in September.

THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

 

...with THE SWEET!  The bubble-glam rockers are probably best known for the trifecta of "Little Willy," "Ballroom Blitz" and "Fox on the Run," though they also charted with the harder-edged "Action" and the more ballad-y "Love is Like Oxygen."  All of those clips also feature the band's rather unique fashion sense, but you have to see the clip for "Wig Wam Bam" -- complete with headdress -- to see the band at its most ridiculous.  BONUS: "All That Glitters" is a BBC documentary originally broadcast in February 1974 charting a day in the life of The Sweet.

DAN AUERBACH advance streams Waiting On A Song.

AMBER COFFMAN (Dirty Projectors) advance streams City of No Reply.

CHASTITY BELT advance streams I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone.

BENJAMIN BOOKER advance streams Witness.

LUKE COMBS advance streams This One's For You.

NICK LOWE shares a country cover, "Walk On By,"  (Leroy Van Dyke,not Burt Bacharach.)

SGT. PEPPER'S: I don't often link to reviews, but this from Alexis Petridis is insightful about what people miss.

TALK TALK: Ten of Their Best.

MAGNETIC FIELDS: Stephin Merritt talks to Pitchfork about his career, his latest album, and more.
