Light City 2017 to feature Biz Markie and Dirty Dozen Brass Band, new art installations



Vanessa Hudgens aims to move beyond her "High School Musical" image, and largely succeeds, in this familiar-feeling but enjoyable comedy-drama. A school newcomer (Gaelan Connell) inspires a novice rock band to shoot for big things ... particularly the championship in a showdown of amateur music groups. Hudgens plays the guitarist who appeals to the fellow, her group's new manager. David Bowie turns up as himself in a cast that also includes Lisa Kudrow and Alyson Michalka (of Aly & AJ fame). *** (PG: P) (Also on Blu-ray)
