... with DAVID BOWIE! The 1980 Floor Show was really recorded live at the Marquee, circa October 1973.  It aired on The Midnight Special the following month. Your selist includes: "Sorrow," "Everything's Alright," "Space Oddity," "I Can't Explain," "Time," "The Jean Genie," and "I Got You Babe," ft. Marianne Faithfull.

BOB DYLAN streams selections from The 1966 Live Recordings.

SLEIGH BELLS advance streams Jessica Rabbit.

MARTHA WAINWRIGHT advance streams Goodnight City.

DANIEL BACHMAN advance streams his self-titled album.

HART VALLEY DRIFTERS, Jerry Garcia's pre-Dead folk troupe, advance streams Folk Time.

JON PRATT: Pate's frontman plays a solo version of "Situation" on a Silvertone, and writes about it on his blog.

WIRE's Colin Newman talks to PopMatters about his solo releases and the future of the band.

JENS LEKMAN talks to the Village Voice about Postcards, Ghostwriting, and his next LP.

SUZANNE VEGA talks to Salon about her tribute to Carson McCullers.

PETER GABRIEL: Ten of His Best.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Trolls, which is currently scoring 76 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Doctor Strange, which is currently scoring 90 percent; and Hacksaw Ridge, scoring 89 percent.

DOCTOR STRANGE: I'm not the first to observe that this latest origin tale has echoes of Marvel Studios' first origin tale -- 2008's Iron Man.  After all, Stephen Strange's personality, problems, and journey to heroics are not terribly different from those of Tony Stark, though set against a backdrop of mysticism rather than technology.  And there's a slight echo of the original Thor, insofar as it provides a bridge between the two.  It is thus a tribute to all involved that this film still seems fresh, both in its psychedelia-meets-Inception visuals and in the performances of a strong ensemble led by Benedict Cumberbatch (who manages a variation on brillaint-but-arrogant different from his turns in Sherlock and The Imitation Game).  There are two extra scenes, so be sure to stay past the credits.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Boo! A Madea Halloween repeats atop the chart with 16.7MM in what turned out to be a very scary weekend for cinemas.It could easily end as the second-biggest of the franchise behind Medea Goes to Jail.  Inferno placed with 15MM, well short of the 25MM gurus predicted.  That's...not good for a film with a 75MM production budget and likely the same amount in marketing costs.  It's doing god biz overseas, but the past few years have not been good to director Ron Howard.  Jack Reacher: Never Go Backshows with 9.6MM, and the 39.7MM domestic total so far is going to need help overseas against even its reasonable 60MM budget.  The Accountant took the fourth slot with 8.5MM and is doing alright as it slowly begins rolling out in other countries.  Ouija: Origin of Evil rounded out the Top Five with 7MM; you'd think this would have held better for Halloween, but it's already made 43MM worldwide against a 9MM budget.  Overall receipts were bad in this frame. Maybe folks are waiting on Doctor Strange.
