Druthers: Hiatus Picks the Week's Best Bets

    Awesome: I Fuckin’ Shot That

    8 p.m. March 23 at United Artists horton Plaza and Edwards Mira Mesa

    Three MCs, one DJ, one concert, many cameras. One awesome documentary. The Beastie Boys’ “Awesome” is the first concert movie to come from the legendary hip-hop trio. In 2004, Adam Yauch, aka MCA, had the idea of passing out several camcorders at the Beastie Boys’ Madison Square Garden show. The result is the first concert documentary shot entirely by audience members. The Beasties put on a helluva show — sampling the best from their eclectic career (the boys even donned baby blue tuxes for the instrumental set). But to mix it up, the doc also features footage of some backstage foolery and a few celebrity cameos. The film, fresh from the hype from its premier at Sundance, was directed by Nathaniél Hornblöwer (Adam Yauch’s lederhosen-laden alter-ego). (CC)

    The Dirtbombs

    March 25 at the Casbah $15 21+

    The kings of the dirtiest, fuzziest rock ’n’ roll this world has ever heard, the Dirtbombs will get your booty shaking and your ears bleeding at the same time. There are two drummers, two bassists and a black man (Detroit legend Mick Collins, who is cooler than you). Listen to the amazing Ultraglide in Black, a collection of soul brotha covers. They’re known to be better than a Thunderbird wine buzz when live, and I’ve been waiting 6 years to find out. (CBN)
