Voodoo Glow Skulls

The fountain of youth burst open May 6 at the Bunkhouse Saloon when the Voodoo Glow Skulls took the stage. After a very aggressive, pleasantly violent start full of moshing and all-in-good-fun heavy pushing, the rowdy crowd was given a break to skank (ska dance style) with “Left for Dead.” As the show carried on, I felt not a day past 15. The fountain’s waters were rejuvenating. Classics such as “Charlie Brown,” “El Coo Cooi,” and “Love Letter” made the set list a fan-pleaser. Closing out the performance, they played with the same ferocity and intensity as the first time I saw them more than 10 years ago. Obviously, these guys bathe in the fountain of youth frequently. After singing my heart out to the final song, “Fat Randy,” I left feeling new, euphoric and a little wet.

Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil. (PG)

By Tribune Media Service

In this failed sequel, Hayden Panettiere voices Red, who has taken time off from the Happily Ever After enforcement agency to train with the Sisters of the Hood, a variation on the Green Berets. In her absence, a villainous crone (Joan Cusack) makes off with Hansel (Bill Hader) and Gretel (Amy Poehler). It’s up to Red, teamed with her nemesis, the wolf (Patrick Warburton), to straighten everything out. This film plays like a jaded rehash of other pictures.
