MUSIC—Lee Fields can't stop. He's labored since the late 1960s on a catalog of rock-solid soul stretching all the way to last year's Faithful Man, a release that featured some of his more wistful, compelling songs to date. If you missed his last couple shows in Portland, go. If you caught them, you're probably already going. DVH

FILM—BFFs John Carpenter and Kurt Russell made three fantastic movies... and 1981's Escape from New York is one of 'em. In the far future of 1997, Air Force One crashes in Manhattan—which is now a brutal, no-holds-barred penal colony! Only one man can save the president: SNAKE PLISSKEN! Watch him do it with the Hollywood Theatre's slick new digital restoration. EH
