Young rockers add more bricks to ‘Wall’

Every year, it’s just another brick in “The Wall” for the more than 70 School of Rock locations around the country; it’s become a tradition to open their seasons with a recreation of Pink Floyd’s landmark 1979 album and mammoth stage show.

But this year, Wilmington School of Rock director Eric Svalgård and his new batch of rock warriors will mark the show’s fifth year in Delaware with elaborate staging, sampling and arranging to help bring the album to life.

Get your education at 8 p.m. Saturday at the School of Rock Garage, 484 Century Boulevard, Prices Corner; and at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at World Cafe Live at the Queen, 500 N. Market St., Wilmington.

Tickets $8 in advance and $10 at the door Saturday; $10 at the door only Sunday.

Three big events for music fans

Local music fans will be busy this weekend with three big shows of note: a big outdoor music festival, a concert pairing local bands with films and a release show for one of Newark’s most popular acts.

We’ll start with the annual RamJam Music and Arts Festival Saturday at Uncle Bob’s Western Corral, 565 Kirk Rd., Fair Hill, Md.

Headliner Mad-Sweet Pangs will be among the 14 bands that will play on two stages from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Other Delaware acts include Spokey Speaky, The Bullbuckers, 61 North, New Sweden and Splashing Pearls. Yellow Dubmarine, a unique Beatles/reggae act from Rockville, Md., is also on the bill.

Tickets, $45, can be purchased at www.ramjamming.com, where a full schedule is posted.

Also Saturday night is the first Cinema Jams battle of the bands, put on by Wilmington’s Film Brothers at World Cafe Live at the Queen, 500 N. Market St., Wilmington.

Reasons to feel sunny about Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Transformers 3, aka Transformers: Dark of the Moon, is going to be brilliant. What’s that you say? Even Michael Bay admitted the last one was rubbish, so why should the next one be any different? Well, let’s just look at the facts.

First of all, DOTM very nearly has a Pink Floyd album in its title. And everyone knows that movies with Pink Floyd albums in their titles are usually great. Just look at 1987′s Bafta-winning Wish You Were Here starring Emily Lloyd, or the Floyd’s own The Wall from 1982. Bay has clearly chosen well here – even if he’s missed out a word in what is clearly a penny-pinching attempt not to pay Waters and Gilmour their due.

Second, instead of Megan Fox, Transformers 3 stars Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Fox, apparently dumped after comparing Bay to an “awkward Hitler”, has received some pretty mixed reviews for her acting performances over the years. Huntington-Whiteley, on the other hand, is an underwear model. And everyone knows that models make great actors. Bay is clearly so confident in her acting skills that in the trailer he doesn’t even need to get her to actually say anything. The look of fear on her face as giant bundles of steel and pixels smash their way randomly around the screen is enough to convince us this is a titan of the thespian profession in waiting.

Third, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, if the trailer is anything to go by, looks very different to the last instalment, which was pretty much just a load of preposterously enormous, utterly unidentifiable (except for the racist ones) robots throttling each other for nearly three hours. In part three, they’ll be doing all this in 3D. That’s twice the pain and torture for a mere £3.50 or so extra. Like I said: brilliant.

We don’t need no education We dont need no thought control No dark sarcasm in the classroom Teachers leave them kids alone Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
