PUNK ROCK—Breakneck rock at thunderous volumes is the name of Metz's game, so prepare to get blown to the back of the room by the sheer weight of the Toronto trio's sound.

FILM—After the forgettable Iron Man 2, hopes weren't high for Iron Man 3—until Marvel made the weird/great decision to hire director Shane Black. Don't be surprised if Black—the writer/director behind 2005's clever Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and the writer of action classics Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, and The Long Kiss Goodnight—supercharges Iron Man's repulsor beams.
