Vinyl is in

Take a stroll down Park Avenue in Worcester and smack in the middle of unique eateries you will find a hidden gem filled to the brim with graphic novels, video games, art supplies, movies and the classic vinyl record. That's Entertainment has been the place for rejoiced fandom for more than 30 years, providing Worcesterites with access to memorabilia and collectables. To no one's surprise, That's Entertainment will host the upcoming 4th National Record Store Day taking place on Saturday, April 21, 2012.

The Evil Streaks

The Evil Streaks hail from central Massachusetts and offer an interesting twist on some pretty classical direction. Their influences are as eclectic as The Sonics, The Go Go's, The Cramps, 5.6.7.8's, The Undertones, Blondie and Joan Jett; and the Evil Streaks wear those influences on their sleeve in the best possible way, effortlessly blending callous punk rock with some sugary pop and dark, almost surfy, grooves. They keep you bobbing your head waiting for the inevitably catchy chorus to come through and blow your mind.

Jiro Ono likes it raw

The title of this week's Cinema 320 film "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" is not meant to be ironic or hyperbolic. Jiro Ono, Japan's most treasured sushi chef, is indeed visited by images of bite-sized chunks of wasabi-glazed tuna, eel and octopus when he shuts his eyes at night.
