Scream 4 (R)

★★☆☆☆

I scream, you scream, we all scream for … more Scream? The fourth installment of the seminal ’90s horror franchise (and the first in more than a decade) follows poor Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now a best-selling author, as yet another copycat killer in an Edvard Munch-inspired mask picks off her nearest and dearest. The formula no longer feels fresh, but at least Ghostface knows enough to call victims on their smartphones now.

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.
