A night of dangerous old-timey music. Combining fierce musicianship with an intense energy, Trampled by Turtles invest their “supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power” (Esquire) that’s dragging bluegrass kicking and screaming into the modern world. They’re abetted here by The Devil Makes Three, who traffic in “bluegrass, folk, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and ragtime, all played with a blazing punk-rock attitude,” (SF Weekly) and the Thomas Paine-quoting Rhode Island duo Brown Bird, who favor a dark and dreamlike take on American roots.

In Surf's Up, a surfing penguin currently riding the wave of success enters his first professional competition in this computer-animated family-oriented comedy from directors Chris Buck and Ash Brannon. Cody Maverick (Shia LaBeouf) may be a relative amateur when it comes to hanging ten, but he's sure he has what it takes to surf his way to superstardom. With a little help from his cantankerous King Penguin mentor, ex-surfing legend Big Z (Jeff Bridges), and a little encouragement from star Pen Gu Island lifeguard Lani (Zooey Deschanel), there may be hope for this tuxedo-clad wave twister after all. James Woods, Jane Krakowski, Michael McKean, Jon Heder, Mario Cantone, and Brian Benben all lend their voices to this inspirational tale that proves anything is possible when you put your heart and mind to it.

In Brave, Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.
