IRONIC—Sam Beam may have (slightly) trimmed his illustrious beard, but he hasn't trimmed back any of the rich musical potion he concocts with Iron and Wine, which has evolved from a whispery acoustic act to globe-spanning folk fusion. New record Kiss Each Other Clean has Iron and Wine revisiting the '70s soft rock of Beam's childhood. NL

LASER HANDS!—The brand-new Kung Fu Theater series at the Hollywood Theatre kicks off with the only known 35mm print of 1982's chop-socky flick Buddha's Palm. Organizer Dan Halsted promises that this one has "kung fu masters who shoot laser breams out of their hands" and "a giant friendly flying dog," so you should probably be pretty excited. EH
