MUSIC—There's never a bad time to see the Woolen Men, who sling catchy rock tunes like they're fast-food hamburgers: quick, hot, tasty, and consumed with a minimum of fuss. So grab a napkin and dig in, as they're joined by San Fran flower-power psychers Cool Ghouls, and Dogheart, the new band from former members of Pheasant. NL

FILM—Exceedingly rarely, an ambitious cinematic saga—say, Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather trilogy, or Michael Apted's Up series—can change the way we think about the world. But perhaps the most poignant film of all is Carl Reiner's 1979 classic The Jerk, following Navin R. Johnson (Steve Martin) on a thrilling, heartbreaking passage through this thing we call "life." Navin's journey is our journey, and ours is his. EH
