The staid performance hall at the Skirball Cultural Center isn't exactly prime territory for a dance party. But that's what happened Thursday night during the performance of Rob Curto's Forro for All ensemble. The dancing didn't kick into high gear until the program was half over, triggered by violinist-singer Eliano Braz's foray into the audience. Spotting a few eager enthusiasts doing steps at the rear of the auditorium, he dashed back and urged them to the front.

You will talk about: Superhero movies. We don't like silly spoof movies as a rule, but "Superhero Movie" at least got the timing right. With a summer full of powerful comic book fare flying at us fast and furiously -- a new Hulk, a new Batman, "Iron Man" and "Hellboy II" -- we've been wondering if the superhero flick has any legs left to fly with. (Friday) We will talk about: The B-52s. This week they release "Funplex," their first new album in 16 years. Music snobs hate this band, but we love them.
