Music: Rock duo Deaf Poets have a sound all... Music fans wouldn't usually associate Miami Beach with a hard rock scene as that sizzling vacation mecca is more noted as an epicenter of dance pop, Latin grooves and electronic music.But Deaf Poets is the band devoted to classic garage rock, punk rock, and even grunge that made their name in Miami Beach regardless of the prevailing stylistic winds. Eventually, to be sure, Deaf Poets did decide to move to a more rock-friendly base of operations, also closer to more of the East Coast [...]

PILGRIMS' PROGESS: Clark exhibit devoted to... WILLIAMSTOWN - The expression on Elizabeth Nourse’s face says it all: She’s going to kick some ass. And so is this exhibit.Nourse is a fitting greeter at “Women Artists in Paris, 1850-1900,” a lovely, thoughtful, informative, inspiring, summer-long (through Sept. 3) exhibit at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown. Featuring about 70 works by an international cross-section of artists, the show should be included in any Berkshire itinerary.The [...]

Movie review: 'Tag' along for a fun ride On paper, the high-concept comedy “Tag” shouldn’t work at all, but for the first hour, the movie is a gas. It centers on a group of childhood buddies who have been playing an ongoing game of tag every May for 30 years. The cast – Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Hannibal Buress, Jake Johnson -- is great. The humor is wicked raunchy and the pace is brisk. But director Jeff Tomsic, working from a script by Rob McKittrick and Mark Steilen, fumbles the ending with a [...]

Movie review: Riseborough is riveting in 'Nancy'   From the first time I saw her as Wallis Simpson in Madonna’s ill-fated “W.E.,” Andrea Riseborough became an instant favorite. I figured if she could be this good in a movie that bad, stardom was hers for the taking. That was seven years ago … and I’m still waiting for her to breakout. But I have a feeling those days of anonymity are about to end after a banner year in which she dazzled as Billie Jean King’s lover in “Battle [...]

Movie review: Celebrating the timeless Gilda...  No movie can do justice to “Saturday Night Live” legend Gilda Radner, but Lisa D’Apolito’s funny, moving “Love, Gilda” sure comes close. Like a lot of celebrity biographies of late, revealing, autobiographical tape recordings provide the backbone in telling her story, which began in Detroit in 1946 and ended much too soon in Los Angeles in 1989. She was just 43, and as the film poignantly reminds, we didn’t just lose Gilda, we [...]

Paul Simon biographer digs into the Sound of... Music journalist Robert Hilburn tends to pick out the most intriguing subjects for his books, like Johnny Cash (2013), but his finely detailed portraits present the subjects in all their many shadings, good and bad, and that can make their cooperation a delicate matter.Which made his decision to write a biography of the notoriously private Paul Simon more challenging yet. Hilburn eventually struck an agreement with Simon that he would get access to the songwriter, but Simon would not [...]

Movie review: 'The Incredibles 2' is not-so-super Wonder Woman has nothing on Elastigirl when it comes to kicking butts in the male-dominated world of superherodom. She’s strong, sexy and smart as a whip. And as voiced by Holly Hunter in Pixar’s long-awaited “Incredibles” sequel, she’s refreshingly humble; a gal who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to get it - as long as it doesn’t infringe too much on her main role as Mom. And did I mention that bountiful booty? Eat your heart out, Kim [...]

Music: Four chances to see guitar ace Jimmy Vivino  Jimmy Vivino knows a few people. “Duke Levine. So good. I feel like he’s famous among the guitar community, unknown more broadly than that like Danny Gatton was for so long, and the nicest cat. I know his brother Buzz, too, he deals me guitars. We haven’t played together, so this will be fun.” “Mike Welch will be at my ONCE show. I knew him when he was 12 years old. I remember him, and people like Derek Trucks and Duane Betts [...]

Hamlet opens his own detective agency when... Hamlet has been portrayed as a textbook schizophrenic, the patron saint of procrastination, a goth hero and a female.Now he’s Humphrey Bogart.Framingham playwright John Minigan offers up a Melancholy Dane who looks a lot less like the Prince of Denmark and a lot more like Sam Spade.Minigan smashed together two of his passions – Shakespeare and the noir genre – and the result is (no surprise) something starkly original, “Noir Hamlet,” [...]

SOUNDS AROUND TOWN: Newton native John Cate... There’s no proper, all-encompassing term for the music of John Cate, the Newton native who spent the past five years in Los Angeles, but recently moved back east, settling in Waltham. Cate would probably be fine with the umbrella label “pop-Americana,” as that’s a good description of the set of original songs the singer-guitarist will be presenting with his trio members – guitarist Paul Candilore and bass man Clayton Young – at the Burren in [...]

Movie review: 'Hearts Beat Loud' is a sweet but... Brett Haley is steadily carving out a reputation has the go-to guy for depicting men and women of a certain age negotiating various forms of midlife crises. For Blythe Danner in “I’ll See You in My Dreams,” it was a widow’s second chance at love. In last year’s “The Hero,” it was a dying Sam Elliott longing to reconnect with his estranged daughter. Haley’s latest, the Sundance darling “Hearts Beat Loud,” is a sort of a [...]

Triple play: Earle, Yoakam and Williams kick... One of the summer's most anticipated tour packages kicked off its multi-city run in Boston Tuesday night, as "The LSD Tour," featuring alt-country/Americana pillars Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam took over Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. All three stars played sets of about an hour apiece, with mostly good results and warm responses from the 3,800 or so fans in attendance. Such combinations of more or less like-minded artists do, however, almost by definition heighten [...]

Meet Framingham's own 'Tom Sawyer,' author C.D.... As he walked to his favorite fishing hole, his spotted pointer by his side and stick pole in hand, a young C.D. Peterson met a writer for Ford Times magazine. It was the early 1940s, and the resulting article - topped with the headline "Meet Tom Sawyer" - told the story of a boy growing up on a New England farm.Carl Douglas "Doug" Peterson, who still bears well the comparison to the boy in Mark Twain’s "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and other novels, grew up on Hillcrest [...]

Saturday night was more like a living room jam session, [...]

GET REEL: Casting a vote for political thrillers To say we live in contentious political times right now would be an understatement along the lines of calling the sun’s surface toasty.Whether you swing from the right or left side, you might find some common ground with your opposite number at the movies when the subject is the political thriller.Of course, some political thrillers do lean one way more than the other, but the more important factor, in this scribe’s opinion, is whether they provide the [...]
