Lord Huron

Spotlight Show • Ben Schneider leads Lord Huron, a Los Angeles folk band with literary, detail-oriented songs inspired by the landscape and, not least, Lake Huron, on whose shores Schneider daydreamed during his Michigan childhood. The City of Angels isn't angelic to Schneider, who loves nothing more than to roam the country and Europe, painting the same sights he sings about. "I am more of a rural type of guy," he said in a phone interview. At least he has his friends on the road with him as they support Lord Huron's new album, "Lonesome Dreams." "Two of the guys, we had our first band in middle school," Schneider said. "At one point, we were playing ska-reggae." Night Moves is also on the bill.

Billy Joe Shaver

Spotlight Show • "I'm listening to Billy Joe Shaver / And I'm reading James Joyce / Some people they tell me I got the blood of the land in my voice." These lyrics are from Bob Dylan's song "I Feel a Change Comin' On," which means Shaver has joined the ranks of The Jack of Hearts, St. Augustine, The Blind Commissioner and Einstein (disguised as Robin Hood), all of whom have been immortalized in a Dylan song. Shaver's songs became country standards during the 1970s and have been covered by Elvis Presley, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and many others. As for being name-checked by Dylan, Shaver, 73, called it "sweet" and said, "I don't know what caused him to do it." He added: "I've never met Bob Dylan. He's the best. I hope to hear from him and tell him, 'Howdy.' "

MOVIES • Listings by Sean Means

As we count down to Halloween, the scares and shocks are leading off the movie list.

The two Hollywood titles vying for box-office glory are both R-rated thrillers. One is "Paranormal Activity 4," the latest in the found-footage horror franchise. This time, the setting is a Nevada suburb, where a family notices some strange goings-on after a single mom and a little boy move in across the street. (Hint to those familiar with the series: The single mom is named Katie.) Since it's set in 2011, cameraphones and laptop cameras get a workout. The movie was not screened for local critics, so here's a less-than-favorable review from USA Today's Claudia Puig..

The other Hollywood production is "Alex Cross," which returns thriller novelist James Patterson's forensic detective to the big screen. (A decade ago, the role was played by Morgan Freeman in "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider.") Cross is played here by actor-director Tyler Perry, who turns out to be a lousy action star – too kindly for the tough dialogue, and too doughy and slow for the action sequences. Worse, though, is the villain, a muscular skinhead played with too much crazy-eyed enthusiasm by a trimmed-down Matthew Fox.

It's up to the art-house list to provide the good stuff this weekend.

The week's best is "How to Survive a Plague," a compelling documentary that chronicles the depths of the AIDS epidemic in America – mostly through archival footage taken by the protesters who demanded action from drug companies and the Food and Drug Administration. The history told here is filled with high drama and some modern-day heroes.

Lastly, there's the Russian drama "Elena," a brooding tale of an ex-nurse (Nadezhda Markina) who fears that her inheritance (and the support for her adult son) will be in danger when her wealthy husband (Andrey Smirnov) decides to rewrite his will. Director Andrey Zvyagintsev creates a tense portrait of desperation and the class divisions of modern Russia.
