The Soft Pack's show last night with Oberhofer got rained out, but they play Union Pool twice this weekend. You can stream their new single "Saratoga" below.

Your movie choices this weekend include indie romantic/fantasy/comedy Ruby Sparks, suburbs-vs-aliens comedy The Watch (supposed to be bad, but it does star the brilliant Richard Ayoade), noir thriller Killer Joe, and the new Step Up film which promises to throw politics into the 3-D mix this time.

Or for something different and crazy violent, Nitehawk Cinema's midnight series "Summer in the City" is showing 1980's schlock vengance flick The Exterminator and you can watch the trailer for that below.

Watch video of Kendrick Lemar performing "She Needs Me" and "HiiiPOWER" live in Portland below.

I love that part in The Watch where the watch guy shoots the black kid eating Skittles. That cracks me up every time.

Is music these days so repetitive and boring because you kids have honestly run out of things to say, or have we just reached the inflection point in human evolution?
