even less room for error. At Briarwood: 12:00, 2:30, 5:00, 7:30, 10:00; at

MeoR LEAGUE 2 Even Wesley Snipes, who will star in anything, skipped out
on this one. We doubt it was a scheduling conflict. At Briarwood: 12:25,
2:30, 4:40, 7:40, 9:45; at Showcase: 12:10, 2:40, 4:55, 7:15, 9:35, 11:50.

4:30,7:00.

2:50, 4:55, 7:10, 9:20, 10:00, 11:30, 12:05.

at Showcase: 12:00, 2:25, 4:40, 7:05, 9:30, 11:55.
FARAWAY, So ClosE Although the sequel to "Wings of Desire" looks
promising, what's with the bungee shit? At State: 2:00 (Saturday & Sunday)
7:00.
GUARmiN Tas "In the Line of Fire," the comedy. Why isn't Nicholas Cage
working with the Coen Brothers anymore? At Briarwood: 12:30, 2:45, 4:45,
7:15, 9:10.
LIGHTNING JACK So fast on the draw that it's almost out of the theaters. At
Briarwood: 9:00.
MONKEY TROUBLE No one would care about this loser if Harvey Keitel
wasn't in it. Wait, Harvey Keitel? Yeah. At Showcase: 12:00, 2:00, 4:00,
6:15.
NAKED Believe the hype, folks. This is Mike Leigh at his best and his worst.
Have fun. At State: 4:30, 9:30.
NAKED GUN 33 1/3 Not to be confused with "Naked," this film is about the
intellectual struggles of a man trying to get over starring in "Surf Ninjas."

Showcase: 12:10, 2:30, 5:00, 7:25, 9:55, 12:20.
THE PIANO This film will not go away. It isn't human; it can't be stopped.
And it wasn't shut out at the Oscars. Aaahhh! At the State: 2:00 (Saturday
& Sunday) 4:30, 7:00, 9:30.
PHLADELPHIA No, no, no. Not Philadelphia, PA, Philadelphia, P.C. At
Showcase: 8:00, 10:20, 12:15.
REAuTY BIES Fantastic, yet another witty comedy about suffering as a
twentynothing. Get ready folks, there are at least 20 of these "new" com-
edies on the way. Just think of it as "21 Candles," or "The Brunch Club." At
Showcase: 12:45, 3:05, 5:20, 7:40, 10:10, 12:20.
THE REF This movie must be good, Denis Leary and director Ted Demme

10:05, 12:10.
SCHINDLER'S LisT Seven Oscars later this masterpiece still holds up. At
Showcase: 12:30, 4:15, 7:50, 11:15.

CANTO A LA VIDA (1990)
Australian documentary about
women in exile. MLB 3 7:00 Free.
ONE FLEw OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
(1975) Before films like "Man
Trouble" and "A Few Good Men,"
Jack Nicholson used to get off his
ass and act. Here's a great examnle.

AFGHAN WHIGs Some say "Gentlemen" is a masterpiece, a brutally frank song
cycle about the modern male psyche. Some say Greg Dulli and the gang are full
of horseshit. Read the article on Page 3, listen to the record, see the show and
make up your own mind. At St. Andrew's Hall.
CROWDED HOUSE & SHERYL CROW Damn it! If Crowded House isn't the most
underrated pop band in all of pop music, we don't know who is. Neil Finn is a
beautiful, sublime songwriter with hooks and melodies better than anything
McCartney has come up with since "Band on the Run." Sheryl Crow is also a
divine songwriter, with wonderful lyrics that match her R&B-influenced rock.
They're at the State Theatre, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 and $19.50
in advance, for listeners of all ages. Yeah, it's expensive but the music is
splendid.
UTAH PHILuPS He's kooky. He's folk. And he ran for President on the "Sloth
and Indolence" ticket; no joke. He's coming to the Ark for an 8 p.m. show.
Tickets are $10.75. You make the call.
ANTON WEBERN - FURTHER FES A multi-media show celebrating the music
of the 20th Century Composer Anton Webern in all of his brilliant glory. It's
showing tonight, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 or $7 for
students; Thursday, it's pay-what-you-can night, so bring what you can. The
show is at the Performance Network.
THE MAYTRICKS All right, they've gone unheard long enough - it's time that
Ann Arbor's best local band gets the attention they deserve. "So Chewy," the
group's latest album, is a quirky power-pop bonanza full of undeniable hooks
and melodies - it's great. So, head down to the cozy Half-Way Inn in East
Quad at 9:30 and hear their sweet pop delights. Besides, it's free so there is no
reason at all not to go.
F R I D A Y
MELISSA FERRICK Don't pigeonhole her as a folkie or as just another female
singer-songwriter; Melissa Ferrick is just a damn good songwriter and since it's
free, you have no reason not to go. It's at Espresso Royale on State Street and
it starts at 8 p.m.
MAJESTY CRUSH A slice of Detroit right here in Ann Arbor. They're noisy and
danceable, and they're at the Blind Pig.
RFD BOYS It's the bluegrass band that just wouldn't go away. They playing
the Ark for the third week in a row. Same deal: the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets
are $8.75 for the rabble and $7.75 for the regulars.
AFTER HASH BASH PARTY After Hash Bash? It must be Hash Bash every day for
Trinidad Tripoli Steel Drum Band. Anyway, it's almost Hash Bash and it's
reggae, so you know what to do. Bring these guys a calendar while you're at
it. At the Heidelberg.
RESTROOM POETS Get a caffeine fix and check out the band that's on every kiosk
and telephone pole in Ann Arbor. Cava Java, $3.
CHAMEuON'S DISH Catch them at Wherehouse records at 7 p.m.
THE KIND A night of alternative rock and booze at Rick's.
KELLER/KOCHER QUARTET They're coming to the Bird of Paradise for $5. Catch
them at Wherehouse Records at 7 p.m.
ANTON WEBERN - FURTHER FIRES See Thursday's listing.
S A T U R D A Y
Liz PHAIR Forget all the hype - Liz Phair truly is a goddess. Not only was
"Exile in Guyville" the best album of 1993, it was the best album of the century!
OK, maybe that' s overstating it a little bit, but Phair's songs are sublimely
crafted gems that grow better on each listen. We've listened to the record over
100 times (and we're not exaggerating) and we're not sick of it yet. So go see
her, 'cause she's the best. At St. Andrew's Hall; tickets are $8.50 in advance;
doors open at 9 p.m.
AUSTIN LOUNGE LIZARDS Yes, there's a high probability from some full frontal
floral shirtage. They're doin' that swing thing, with a touch of bluegrass.
Tickets are $8.75; the show starts at 8 p.m. at the Ark.
MARY JANE'S THRASH BASH An evening of all-female hardcore cacophony from
Whiptail and Inside Out. Come on feel the noise at the Blind Pig. Doors open
an 9:30 p.m.
LI.' SIsTER WITH JUNCTION Lil' Sister came all the way from Austin with their
"earthy-funk" sounds so they'd appreciate a crowd I'm sure. They're rock on
the same label as Vanilla Ice and Wilson Phillips What a bummer that must be.
They're going to be at Rick's.
SCoT'S PIRATES The new band with two local legends - the Stooges' Scott
Asheton and Rationals' Scott Morgan - are celebrating the release of their
new album for SchoolKids Records at the Heidelberg.
MICK VRANICH AND WORDBAN'D Remember Mike Myer's profession in "So I
Married an Axe-murderer?" See some poetic rambling at Cava Java. Could be
deep.
KELLER/KOCHER QUARTET See Friday, Bird of Paradise.
ANTON WEBERN - FURTHER FIES See Thursday's listing, please.
