In Time

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

In this sci-fi thriller, time is the new currency, spent and borrowed like money. Each person’s forearm is digitally stamped with a countdown clock. Just before committing suicide, a stranger gifts Will (Justin Timberlake) 100 years. A lawman (Cillian Murphy) suspects Will of murder. On the run, Will takes a rich man’s daughter (Amanda Seyfried) hostage and the duo goes Robin Hooding. Writer-director Andrew Niccol has a good premise, but his technique is lacking.

Deer Tick and Dusty Sunshine

Deer Tick is fucking awesome. The Rhode Island indie rock quintet—whose music ranges from country to soul to frat rock—had the packed house in awe during their 100-minute-plus performance. Lead singer John McCauley has one of those voices that is perfect for loud, raw guitar-driven rock music. And he displayed it on sing-alongs “The Bump,” “Walking Out the Door” and “Main Street.” His talents also include songwriting, guitar strumming and the ability to down copious amounts of alcohol, if the huge bucket of beers onstage was any indication.
