AMY WINEHOUSE recently went to rehab, but she's dead, dead, dead -- of undetermined causes so far.  However, the Daily Mail claims she bought ecstasy, cocaine and ketamine on the night before her death.  She was 27, the same age as Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix. Here's your full NYT obit, icymi.  Rolling Stone has her tumultuous life in pictures.

RICHARD BUCKNER is advance streaming Our Blood.

THE BLACK ANGELS stopped by the World Cafe for a chat and mini-set.

OTHER LIVES stopped by Oregon Public Broadcasting for a session.

THE GRATEFUL DEAD with THE BEACH BOYS: Live at Fillmore East, NYC,  April 27, 1971.

ARE WE NOT NEW WAVE? Modern Pop at the Turn of the 1980s, excerpted at PopMatters.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Captain America upsets Harry Potter at the cineplex with 65.8 million, possibly edging otu Thor as the biggest-opeing for a comic book movie this summer (the actuals may put Cap in 2nd).  I think Marvel has to be happy that a late bloomer did this well here, as it may not do the same business Thor did overseas.  Deathly Hallows plummeted 72 percent with 48 million as it seems fans poured out to see it last weekend.  However, Part 2 has already passed the total of 2 other Potter movies and may well be the first to crack a billion at the box office.  Friends With Benefits took the third slot with 18.5 million, slightly less than No Srings Attached, but not bad considering that most people interested in this type of story likely went and saw No Strings Attached recently.  Transformers: Dark of the Moon comes in fourth with a decent 12 million, setting up a potentially close finish with Potter for the year's top grosser.  Horrible Bosses rounds out the Top Five in leggy fashion with 11.7 million, for a 82.4 million total to date against a 35 million budget.  Below the fold, it's worth noting that Midnight in Paris at No. 10 is quietly becoming the biggest success Woody Allen -- or Owen Wilson, for that matter -- has had in a while.

ARNOLD & MARIA: Schwarzenegger and Shriver's 13-year-old son is in serious condition in a Los Angeles-area hospital following a surfing accident on a beach in Malibu. Also, Arnold is filing a revised divoce petition that won't ask the judge to deny spousal support.

LINDSAY LOHAN ended Saturday night crying, screaming and barely able to walk. Alcohol may have been involved.

BEAVIS & BUTTHEAD RETURN: Your Sneak Peek.

TERROR in NORWAY: The 32-year-old suspected of gunning down scores of young people at a summer camp and setting off a bomb in downtown Oslo that killed at least seven is a mystery to investigators: a right-winger with anti-Muslim views but no known links to hardcore extremists.

TERROR in the USA: A jury convicted Mohammed Wali Zazi of conspiring to obstruct the investigation of a terror plot and destroying bomb making materials. Mohammed attempted to cover up a plot by his son, Najibullah, to carry out bombings on New York City trains.

YEMEN: Tribesmen stopped a convoy of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula fighters from reaching Zinjibar; one AQAP fighter was killed.

IRAN: The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps denied that it shot down an unmanned US spy plane over a nuclear enrichment plant. An Iranian nuclear scientist and his wife were murdered in front of their home in Tehran.
