U2: "Pride" and "MLK." Crushingly obvious. Have a dream.

DAVID CROSBY stopped by World Cafe for a chat and mini-set.

THE FLAMING LIPS are streaming Oczy Mlody via Spotify.

OF MONTREAL is streaming the Rune Husk EP via Spotify and Apple Music.

DION: A vintage performance of "Abraham, Martin & John."

LAURIE ANDERSON tals to The Guardian about Buddhism, lide, loss and Lou Reed.

SMASHING PUMPKINS: Billy Corgan updated The Loop (97.9 in Chicago) on a possible reunion.

LIZ PHAIR is making a double-LP in Ryan Adams’ Pax-Am studios.

TONY ALLSUP, a guitarist best known for losing a coin toss that kept him off a plane that later crashed and killed rock 'n' roll stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "Big Bopper" Richardson, has died. He was 85.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Hidden Figures tops the chart with 20.5MM, a very leggy 10 percent drop from its debut, and likely a big profit for the studio.  La La Land placed with 14.5MM riding a 43 percent increas in biz after its Golden Globes sweep; this one's already well in the black against a 30MM budget.  Sing showed with 13.8MM on a 33 percent drop, and is approaching 400MM worldwide against a 75MM production budget.  Rogue One slipped to the fourth slot with 13.8MM on a 38 percent drop that's not bad considering it lost almost 1000 screens this weekend; it's also now the biggest-grossing film released in 2016.  The Bye Bye Man rounded out the Top Five with 13.4MM, which means a movie with bad reviews and abysmal Cinemascores may well make a tidy profit.  This is what happens when you go over a month without a horror film.  Below the fold, the expansion of Patriot's Day opens as a disappointing sixth with 12MM, though good reviews and an A+ Cinemascore suggests it might find its legs in the typically abysmal dumping grounds of January.  Monster Trucks had a seventh-place 10.5MM debut; the studio already took a 100MM writedown on this one.
