  • DURHAM — “American Idiot,” the rock opera by Green Day, took the stage Tuesday night at the Durham Performing Arts Center and showed that you don’t need to wait until a band is retired to make a musical, you just need to make it good. “American Idiot” is. Here in Durham for two nights, it’s the tour of the Broadway show based on the California band’s 2004 album of the same title. “American Idiot” is about the coming of age of three young men wanting out of suburbia. It’s a universal story of being an angst-ridden young man who needs to go on an adventure – good or bad – to come of age.

  • Record Store Day (RSD) shakes up Billboard's charts, as a bevy of albums and singles released for the indie retail event on April 19 overwhelm our lists.

    On the 25-position Tastemakers chart -- which tracks the top-selling albums at independent and small chain stores -- only three albums weren't specifically tied to RSD festivities. The chart (excerpted below) is led by Green Day's 18-track "Demolicious" album, which was released exclusively to indie retailers on CD, vinyl and cassette. (Yes, cassette.)

    It sold nearly 4,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

  • Ellen Fisher was in for a surprise.

    Determined to avoid a repeat of last year's Newport Beach Film Festival opening night — where she arrived a half hour before the start of the film — the Orange resident made her way to Edwards Big Newport with two hours to spare Thursday.

    "We were almost late," the 70-year-old recalled. "We were way down the street in line."

    Although Fisher and her husband, Bill, 66, expected to be quite a ways down the road, they found a spot right at the top of the queue.

    "Ta-da!" she remarked.

    The 15th annual Newport Beach Film Festival kicked off with a world premiere
