Except for his evident fascination with eccentrics, Robert Altman might seem an odd choice to direct a live-action film about the famous animated sailor. But in the end, this Popeye is another of Altman’s many investigations into the workings of a community. Plot and incident are less the point here than is the observation of Popeye and Olive Oyl, their son Swee’pea, their parents, their friend Wimpy and the other inhabitants of the seaside town of Sweethaven. While Altman tips his hat to the Fleischer brothers’ cartoons of the 1930s, Jules Feiffer’s screenplay resurrects the populist sentiment of E.C. Segar’s original comic strips. 35mm print courtesy of the Robert Altman Collection at the UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Performed in English, Martha contains two of the most famous arias in the operatic repertoire, sparkling ensembles, and the luminously tender "Goodnight" Quartet. The story is timeless.

In the unexpected twists and turns of plot that follow, all of them learn that appearances may be deceiving but that the language of the heart cannot be ignored.

with Bob Kendall Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album, "Indestructible Machine," Lydia Loveless emerges from the trenches of hometown Columbus, OH with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on "Somewhere Else." While her previous album was described as "hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart" (Uncut), this one can't be so quickly shoehorned into neat categorical cubbyholes. No, things are different this time aroundLoveless and her band have collectively dismissed the genre blinders and sonic boundaries that come from playing it from a safe, familiar place.Writing from this new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination, and openness. "Somewhere Else" is more elemental than any of Loveless's previous material; it's about longing for the other, whether that's something emotional, physical, or mental, all anchored by her arresting voice that sounds beyond her years. Creatively speaking, if "Indestructible Machine" was an all-night bender, "Somewhere Else" is the forlorn twilight of the next day, when that creeping nostalgia has you looking back for someone, something, or justanything.On "Somewhere Else" Loveless is less concerned with chasing approval she scrapped an entire album's worth of material before writing this set and more focused on fighting personal battles of longing and heartbreak, and the aesthetic that comes along with them. She might not steal your car after the relationship goes south, but you can be damn sure she'll still take a baseball bat to the windows on her way down the street. She might even smile about it.

With members from Mexico, Texas, Japan, California, and Norway, Night Lights brings together an eclectic assortment of sounds influenced by indie, rock, and soul music in an effort to make people dance and feel feelings. The Boston-based band met in 2012 and has since discovered a balance between profound lyrics, hooky melodies, danceable music, and intriguing harmonic progressions. Inspired by the likes of Mutemath, Two Door Cinema Club, and Friendly Fires, Night Lights released their debut EP, Here We Come, in July of 2014. Featuring indie pop/rock anthem singles "Make Me Smile" and "Hit the Water," it has earned them a live session show with Culture Collide, a feature as the third best band in Boston by Vents Magazine, and the honor of being named one of the bands to buzz about in fall of 2014 by Buzznet. Night Lights is set to release their first full-length LP in the summer of 2015.
Born in 2009, Boston-based Jet Black Sunrise traces its origin from a mutual love of nuts-and-bolts songwriting and an equally strong affinity toward bourbon-soaked evenings around an acoustic guitar. Their third release, Departures, has seen them rise to new levels artistically with a new batch of songs that are both harmonically dynamic and emotionally evocative.
An alternative pop band from Long Island, New York, Bohemians is Luke Lotardo, Eric Milton, Eric Pubins, and Perry Ladouceur. After playing in bands together during middle school, Lotardo, Milton, and Pubins joined together to form Bohemians in the summer of 2012 and immediately began creating catchy tracks that caught the ear of a producer who offered the group a chance to have professional studio time in Baltimore. After releasing their self-titled EP, they began to gain more fans and attention and Ladouceur, a longtime friend, joined the band on bass. Since then, Bohemians have released another single, made radio appearances, had songs placed in films, and most recently, played at the world-famous Webster Hall in New York City. Their debut LP, Settle Down, Carry On, was released on January 13, 2015.

with Joseph Silovsky Joseph Silovsky is an object-oriented performance artist known for his odd mechanical creations. Combining his passions for construction, history, and theory, he builds machines, contraptions, puppets, and stages, which he employs in productions that bring to life arcane figures and the minutiae that surround them. His works explore communication, driven by his underlying belief that nothing is more important than to keep trying to communicate. An active performer and creator since 1990, he has performed solo work at St. Anns Warehouse, PS122, Petes Candy Store, Dixon Place, and elsewhere. Silovsky has also been a technical director and performer with companies such as The Builders Association and Radiohole.
