Fast Five (PG-13)


As male power fantasies go, this fifth Fast franchise installment has an undeniable trashy charm. We join the original crew of road-racing bandits—Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster—robbing trains in Rio de Janeiro. With FBI agent Dwayne Johnson on their tail, they plan a $100 million caper. With crisp stunts that defy the laws of physics and a gritty atmosphere, this film is never dull. The extravagantly budgeted action scenes are so thrilling that you can forfeit its shortcomings.

Deep Dark Robot

Linda Perry, the former lead singer of 4 Non Blondes, sat down at a keyboard and led her band, Deep Dark Robot, through a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Angie.” It was midway through their April 22 set at Beauty Bar, and they crushed it, like they did their entire performance. This is a bar band that’s as tight as any I’ve seen recently, and with Perry’s knack for writing pop hits (happy customers include Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and Pink), there’s no reason they can’t break bigger.
