Bite of Las Vegas

Desert Breeze Park, Oct. 15

Of the 11 bands that performed on two stages—including Imagine Dragons, Avalon Landing, Mat Kearney, The Cab and O.A.R.—my two favorites were chanteuses Colbie Callait and Michelle Branch.

Callait is at her best when it’s just her voice and her guitar, and that’s what we got for most of her set. The crowd swayed to the soothing sounds of her new single, “All of You.”

Branch, who has been off the map for the last few years, gave a killer comeback performance. Wearing her usual floppy hat and hippie clothes, she sang fan favorites “Goodbye to You,” “All You Wanted” as well as her new single “Loud Music.”

Both ladies had fans off their blankets and dancing along with festival food in hand.

The Ides of March

By Tribune Media Services

In this political suspense film, Ryan Gosling is a spokesman for a Democratic governor (George Clooney, who also directs) seeking the nomination for president. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the campaign’s manager; Paul Giamatti plays his counterpart. Both covet the support of a sphinx-like senator played masterfully by Jeffrey Wright. Political skulduggery unfolds. The invented plot twists tax the abilities of Gosling, but the rest of the cast and the atmosphere dazzle.
