MUSIC—There's much more to '70s songbird Anne Murray than her anemic hits. Her 1968 debut album What About Me is a expertly crafted country classic—which makes it worthy of this month-long cover show, What About Us: An Anne Murray Tribute. Featuring members of Sallie Ford, Viva Voce, and Point Juncture, WA (and tonight's guests Emily and Jamie from Great Wilderness), it's Anne Murray like you've never heard her! WSH

FILM—Mel Gibson is batshit insane. This is known. The only thing more known is that he originated the role of Max Rockatansky, a vengeful cop with a badass car. 1979's Mad Max is must-see big-screen viewing, not just for the way George Miller's post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland swallows audiences whole, but also to watch Gibson's gas-huffing descent into madness.
