Music

The Holmes Brothers. On the first song of their new album, Brotherhood, the Holmes Brothers sing about staying at a party a little too late. In musical terms, it's hard to think of anyone who bridges Saturday night and Sunday morning - the secular and the spiritual - better. Brotherhood is another enthralling mix of the roadhouse and the revival - low-down rhythm and blues and uplifting gospel.

- Nick Cristiano


The Holmes Brothers perform at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Ardmore Music Hall, 23 E. Lancaster Ave. Tickets: $20. Information: 610-649-8389, www.ardmoremusic.com.

Film

New This Week: Draft Day (*** out of four stars). Somewhere between a feature-length promo for the NFL and a Moneyball-style look at sports franchise hiring and firing strategies, Draft Day swoops down (with a Sky-Cam?) into the world of Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner), the fictive general manager of the real Cleveland Browns. PG-13 (strong language and sexual references)
