Music: All Tomorrow’s Petty
“Buy me a drink, sing me a song. Take me as I come ’cause I can’t stay long.” —Tom Petty
All Tomorrow’s Petty is a loose-knit, all-star collective that gives Tom Petty songs a postmodern twist via all manner of late-20th- and early-21st-century indie rock filters. Affectionately covering selections from the vast Petty canon rendered with a variable degree of interpretive license, the core group includes members of Halloween Alaska, the Pines, Gramma’s Boyfriend, Ginkgo, and Rogue Valley, among others.

“A witty homage to the Dynamic Duo’s exaggerated exploits.” —New York Times
Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) must battle sharks, a submarine shaped like a penguin, and the Penguin himself when they are lured to a yacht to save the Commodore Schmidlapp. This spirited adaptation of the 1960s television series features most of the original cast members and other familiar enemies, including Catwoman, the Joker, and the Riddler. The “Dynamic Duo” delivers hilariously straight performances amid outlandish scenarios. 1966, video, 105 minutes.
