“All Screwed Up”

The Italian title of Lina Wertmüller’s 1974 dark comedy, Tutto a posto e niente in ordine, translates roughly as “Everything is ready, but nothing really works.” The film follows the slapstick adventures of two bumbling country boys from the south as they move to Milan, find work in factories and restaurants, live in a rough worker’s commune, fall in love, and embark on a farcical life of crime. — Michael Harrington

7 p.m. Saturday at International House's Lightbox Film Center, 3701 Chestnut St., $10; $8 seniors and students, 215-387-5125,

“Rogue One”

"Rogue One" at the Water Tower Recreation Center on Saturday.

Here's the dark secret behind Star Wars: not all the films have the same, ah, stature. So, this 2016 not-quite-a-prequel, telling how the rebels found that flaw in the Death Star, was a pleasant surprise, joining the original (a.k.a. A New Hope) and The Empire Strikes Back (and, maybe, The Force Awakens) as a top-tier entry in the series. The film screens outdoors, so be prepared (lawn chair, light saber, droid — bring what you need). — M.H.

8 p.m. Saturday at Water Tower Recreation Center, 200 E. Hartwell Lane, free, 215-248-8810,

Yoga Day at the Aquarium

Did you ever want say namaste to a narwhal? It turns out you can't, because there are no narwhals in captivity.

After the session, check out the eels, angelfish, sea turtles, penguins, and hippos. — M.H.

Rave of Thrones

Get down with Hodor: Kristian Nairn, who played the character on “Game of Thrones,” will be at the Foundry on Saturday.

Game of Thrones fans may know star Kristian Nairn as Hodor. But with his beloved character's death on Season Six of the show (sorry, spoilers), the actor has been free to focus on other pursuits. Namely, DJing. And he's coming to Philly. Nairn will be in town this week as part of the appropriately titled "Rave of Thrones," a live tour featuring music from Hodor himself, plus a few friends. Sure, it might sound weird that someone we all know as a simpleminded (and now dead) stable boy of Winterfell is spinning some records, but the guy actually has some serious history. A native of Northern Ireland, Nairn formerly served as the house DJ of Kremlin, a popular gay club in Belfast, according to the actor's website. Nairn was not in Game of Thrones' fifth season, and he spent his hiatus from the show DJing Rave of Thrones events as well. So, safe to say, this is not the Game of Thrones live concert that came through Philly earlier this year. It just might be a little more fun. — Nick Vadala

9 p.m. Saturday, the Foundry at the Fillmore, 29 E. Allen St., $20,

Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer at World Cafe Live on Friday.

The sensational sibling singers have finally teamed up for the fine album Not Dark Yet, featuring covers of tunes by Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, and Townes Van Zandt. Their heartfelt version of the Louvin Brothers' country classic "Every Time You Leave" is worth the price of admission itself. — M.H.

8 p.m. Friday at World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St., $40, 215-222-1400,

Sheer Mag

South Philadelphia punk band Sheer Mag.

Anyone who cares about the real punk rock of Philadelphia — from Sadistic Exploits to Dead Milkmen to Ink & Dagger to Cayetana — must care about the delicious Sheer Mag. Born out of the South Philly house-show scene, their initial sound was mean, lean riff rock — a three-legged sack race between Thin Lizzy and the New York Dolls — with a dramatic edge. By the time Sheer Mag recorded its second EP, gruffly soulful vocalist Tina Halladay had begun to politicize her lyrics based on her interactions with rotten landlords and smug cops and came up with a towering sense of rage to match Kyle and Hart Seely's riffage. Now, on the band's just-released debut LP, Need to Feel Your Love, Halladay's politics are pushed way up front in the mix (songs about Stonewall and early anti-Nazi hero Sophie Scholl), with Sheer Mag's melodies following her R&B heft, as much of the record is informed by disco and its funky, discordant twitches. Nicely done. — A.D. Amorosi

8:30 p.m. Saturday at Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., $12, 215-232-2100,

Aretha Franklin

The Queen of Soul is coming to Philadelphia. Do we need to say more about one of the most powerful, recognizable voices in pop, soul, and R&B? Just go bow down to her highness. — N.V.

8 p.m. Saturday, the Mann Center, 5201 Parkside Ave., $59.50-$129.50,

Lilly Hiatt at Boot and Saddle on Tuesday.

"I get bored so I want to get drunk / I know how that goes / So I ain't gonna touch it," Lilly Hiatt sings on the title song of her new album. "Trinity Lane" sets the tone for an autobiographical set in which the daughter of acclaimed singer-songwriter John Hiatt confronts her life with unflinching honesty. It's all set against equally raw rock that at times incorporates rootsy elements. — Nick Cristiano

8:30 p.m. Tuesday at Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., $10. 267-639-4528,

Washed Out

For all practical purposes, Ernest Greene's Washed Out (or Washed Out's Ernest Greene; save for live shows, his albums, to a point, were all him) sounded loud the (faux) trumpets for indie electronica in the 21st century. With their muted, old-school sounds (Optigans, Mellotrons, first-gen sequencers), new-school tones (glitch hop, micro-house), shoegaze dreaminess, and gauzy production, Within and Without and Paracosm were the sound tracks to any sad, romantic interlude you had planned. Add Greene's aching, tremulous vocals, and all that was left were the teardrops. Washed Out's newest album, Mister Mellow, isn't radically different from his first two — there's still a yearning whoosh that sounds happily like early Tears for Fears — but his stage ensemble's live showcase looks pretty cool. Using Microsoft Kinect software, images from Mister Mellow will be triggered and controlled by the band's movement. Which means this time out, Washed Out had better move a little bit. — A.D.A.

8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., $25. 215-232-2100,
