Steven Swift

Spotlight show • Steven Swift, one of the most high-profile singer-songwriters in southern Utah, will headline a concert marking the 20th anniversary of the independent record store Groovacious, owned by Tim and Lisa Cretsinger. On Nov. 9, 1992, Groovacious opened its doors for the first time in Oregon, and after eight successful years , the couple said they fell in love with southern Utah and decided to move their store to Cedar City in October of 2000. In honor of the occasion, the record store will offer a 20-percent discount all day Friday, with Swift's show at the store at 7 p.m. "It's going to be a fun day," said Tim. Of the couple, Swift said, "God knows, they've helped me a lot over the years." To repay their kindness, he said his show will include only songs from 1992, from the likes of Nirvana, Loudon Wainwright III, the Jayhawks, Pearl Jam, Tom Waits, Phish and Peter Gabriel, among others.

When • Friday, Nov. 9, 7 p.m.

Milo Greene

Spotlight show • This Californian group with a sound that harkens back to the gauzy Laurel Canyon folk sound of the 1970s will make its second visit to Utah after its high-profile opening for The Civil Wars in May at The Depot. It will also be the band's second visit to Kilby Court. "It's hard to forget that place," said singer and multi-instrumentalist Graham Fink. The band's rapidly ascending career got the inevitable boost from its debut album being released in July. "It's been a pretty fun six months," Fink said. But, like any new band, Fink and his bandmates are enduring life criss-crossing the country in a 12-passenger van, with Fink's duties including reminding his mates to change their socks on a regular basis. But the band loved the change from Daylight Savings Time this past weekend: they all received an extra hour of sleep, a godsend for a band on the road again. Bahamas is also on the bill.

MOVIES • Compiled by Sean P. Means

This weekend's moviegoing excitement can be summed up in three words: Bond. James Bond.

The 23rd installment of the Bond franchise, "Skyfall," ranks up there with some of the best. (The Cricket ranked all 23, from best to worst — so let the arguments begin.) Daniel Craig returns as Bond, who faces not only an implacable cyber-criminal (Javier Bardem) with a vendetta against MI6's boss M (Judi Dench), but also his own self-doubts after a mission goes bad and he's left for dead. Director Sam Mendes ("American Beauty") explores Bond's character and personal backstory, while also serving up plenty of exciting action scenes and sensual moments (including new Bond girl Berenice Marlohe), and winking nods to 007's history. The fine supporting cast includes Naomie Harris ("Pirates of the Caribbean") as a rookie agent, Ben Whishaw ("Cloud Atlas") as the computer genius Q, and Ralph Fiennes as the new intelligence minister who butts heads with M.

The rest of this week's movie slate can be found at the Broadway and Tower, and one in particular stands out: The animated "It's Such a Beautiful Day." Director Don Hertzfeldt employs his stick-figure drawing style to tell the story of Bob, an average guy dealing with loneliness, terminal illness, memories of his mother and the prospect of mortality. Hertzfeldt juxtaposes his simple animation with complex visuals, for an experience that's surreal, deeply sad and profoundly moving.

Director Andrea Arnold ("Fish Tank") brings some grit to Emily Brontë's classic "Wuthering Heights," and pushes the always-tense relationship between working-class Heathcliff and noblewoman Catherine by casting black actors (James Howson and Solomon Glave) as Heathcliff. The results are sometimes moving, but frequently obtuse.

Lastly, "The Details" plays like a bad Coen brothers farce. It's a dark comedy about an obstretrician (Tobey Maguire) who gets in over his head with adultery, murder and raccoons. It's painfully unfunny, though Laura Linney gives the film some spark as a crazy cat-lady neighbor.
