Music Live Extra Jan. 13: A weekend at Garage on Beck

Two nights of local acts who engage in varying forms of the far-out.

Skeen, who not only serves up smoldering psychobilly all on his own, but pounds his drums and strums his guitar all dolled up in a suit.

Movie Reviews: 63 Up, The Grudge

63 Up ***1/2 Michael Apted’s monumental documentary experiment—begun in 1964 with a handful of 7-year-old British children, whom he has subsequently followed every seven years—long ago became something bigger than any individual installment.
