Panic! at the Disco, Haley Kiyoko
Even if alternative pop-rock band Panic! At the Disco’s music isn’t your thing, there’s no denying they’ve got an overflowing handful of bops—such as 2016’s Sinatra-like “Death of a Bachelor.” With powerhouse singer Brendon Urie as its frontman and lots of supplemental horns and strings, Panic! dropped its sixth studio album Pray for the Wicked earlier this summer. Standouts from the 11-track project include “Dancing’s Not a Crime,” “King of the Clouds,” and “One of the Drunks.” Come for the older hits, but stay to hear Urie’s soaring vocals on his jazz-influenced new material.

Spec Script: Entourage
I know little to nothing about the TV show Entourage. (It’s about leisure suits, right?) And I’m looking forward to knowing even less about it thanks to this month’s Spec Script reading, where a local comedian (in this case the super-funny Laura Anne Whitley) pens a script for an episode of a show they have never seen. Is John Stamos on Entourage? It sort of doesn’t matter. What matters is who Whitley THINKS is on Entourage. Minority Retort’s Julia Ramos and many hilarious others help table read the glorious creation. SUZETTE SMITH

Deafheaven, Drab Majesty, Uniform
It can be difficult to align Deafheaven with any one genre—the band’s soft, hazy tendencies don’t quite fit into black metal, yet their harshness alienates them from shoegaze. Regardless, Deafheaven's new record Ordinary Corrupt Human Love contains the best of both genres. Throughout the album, frontman George Lesage Clarke balances melancholy and delicacy while tackling songs that seethe with frustration and rage. CERVANTE POPE

The Princess Bride
This movie is 100 percent pure charm in film form. That’s not to say Rob Reiner’s adaptation of William Goldman’s bestselling novel isn’t also shot through with moments of real romance (“As you wish”) and cathartic satisfaction (“I want my father back you sonofabitch,”) but the reason this movie occupies such a precious place for so many is the charm radiating off its styrofoamy sets, through a score that sounds like it’s coming out of a Casio keyboard’s single built-in-speaker, humming under dialogue written so beautifully the actors can’t help but smile at the magic flowing out of their mouths. It proves you don’t need $200 million and two years of post-production to realize pure imagination. Not when you’ve got a big heart and all the charm in the world. BOBBY ROBERTS
