Genya Ravan, the classic rocker behind Goldie and the Gingerbreads and Ten Wheel Drive, is still a presence in the music community thanks to her twice-monthly DJ-ing responsibilities on Little Steven’s Underground Garage on SiriusXM. The singer, whose band once toured with the Rolling Stones, has also told her remarkable story in the autobiography Lollipop Lounge: Memoirs of a Rock and Roll Refugee, portions of which have been made into a new musical.
Rams, playing New York City’s Film Forum, is the new movie from Icelandic director Grímur Hákonarson. The film charts the troubles of two sheep farmers in the remote countryside of Iceland. These two men, both bachelors and brothers who haven’t talk to each other in decades, love the sheep they raise. They may not talk to each other anymore, but the two men certainly talk to their beloved farm animals. When a deadly infection threatens the brothers’ herds, plus the sheep throughout the valley, their 40-year standoff is put to the test.
