IGGY POP stopped by Morning Becomes Eclectic for a session.

THE TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND plays a Tiny Desk Concert.

HAYES CARLL atreams Lovers and Leavers.

DAVID BOWIE got tributes from (among others) Michael Stipe, Pixies, Debbie Harry, J Masics & Sean Lennon, and The Flaming Lips (with Wayne Coyne riding Chewbacca) at Carnegie Hall.

CHRISTOPER WALKEN turned 73 a few days ago, so of course one's mind goes to Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice."

EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY talks to All Songs Considered about The Wilderness.

PJ HARVEY is profiled by The Guardian.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Batman v Superman repeated atop the chart with 52.4MM, but that's off a steep 72 percent from its opening. Word-of-mouth is apparently not as good as DC and WB hoped. Given the continuing pricey marketing campaign and similar drops overseas, the picture looks like it could be in some trouble.  Not in trouble is Zootopia, which placed with 20MM, which ranks among some of history's biggest grossers in remaining at 20MM+ for five weekends.  It still is unlikely to be as leggy as Frozen, but may come within the ballpark. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 showed with 11.1MM, off an expected 38 percent; next weekend will tell the full tale of whether it fades like a sequel. God's Not Dead 2 took the fourth slot with 8.1MM; it's trailing the original by about a million, but (like MBFGW2) it remains to be seen whether this one will have the original's legs.  Miracles From Heaven rounded out the Top Five with 7.6MM on a 22 percent drop, which is quite good consdiering the competition for God's Not Dead 2.  Below the fold, Eye in the Sky expanded wide, rose into ninth place, and took in 4MM; afaik, it's your last look at the great Alan Rickman.

DREW BARRYMORE & WILL KOPPELMAN are divorcing.

AMANDA BYNES is turning 30 healthier than ever.

SEAN YOUNG talks to the Hollywood Reporter, and it's very Sean Young.
