FILM—Starring the late, great Jim "Dragon" Kelly, 1974's Black Belt Jones is, without a doubt, the finest blaxploitation kung fu film ever made. When his karate school comes under fire from the mob, Black Belt (Kelly) fights back—with help from beach bunnies and Scatman Crothers! Don't miss your chance to see this under-appreciated epic on the big screen, courtesy of the Portland Black Film Festival. EH

MUSIC—The observant, charming songwriting of LA's Tom Brosseau will win you over in seconds flat. And Seattle's Shelby Earl can go from heartbreaking intimacy to CinemaScope-sized emotion in the space of the same song. These two singer/songwriters are some of the best at what they do, making tonight's double bill a true knockout. NL
