WHEN singer-songwriter Jens Lekman was checking out apartments to rent in Kortedala, a suburban neighborhood of his Swedish hometown Gothenburg, one landlord made an odd case for Lekman to move in. The previous occupant died in the bathroom, he said, and it took three months for anyone to notice. "He drowned in the bathtub," Lekman says. "I asked the landlord 'Why are you telling me this?' They thought that I would like it. It was their key point in getting me to take the apartment."

For all of its high-energy sweetness, Drew Barrymore's coming-of-age roller-derby tale, "Whip It," might be one of the most rock 'n' roll-heavy flicks of the year. The film packs 75 songs into its 111 minutes, tracking the first taste of independence from Ellen Page's teenage character, Bliss, with a trail of contemporary music. Staples of teenage autonomy, such as the Ramones' punk-meets-bubble gum pop gem "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker," are represented as are current chart hits like MGMT's "Kids."

By now, lots of Angelenos have spent a Saturday evening watching movies in Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

But if you've ever snuggled on the grass with a favorite snuggler and wondered what it would be like to spend the whole night there, this Saturday is your big chance. This weekend, Cinespia's Movies til Dawn invites guests to grab their sleeping bags and experience an all-night psychedelic-themed movie extravaganza.

Popular music, common wisdom says, is the province of kids. In 1959 it still hurt to be "a teenager in love," but by 1965 the message had changed to "hope I die before I get old," and from that moment onward, pop's overt bias toward youth increased exponentially. Truthfully, though, pop has always made room for maturity. In 1965, the same year the Who recorded "My Generation," 49-year-old Frank Sinatra released the album "September of My Years" — a meditation on the notion of being past your prime that ranks among the great man's best work.

Staff writer Richard Cromelin sorts out the festival, hour by hour: NOON CATCH IT IF YOU CAN DJ MEHDI (Sahara, 12-2) 1 P.M. DON'T MISS AMERICAN BANG Aw, lookout! This Nashville group's rural throwback sound is as infectious as it is familiar. (Mojave, 1:15-1:55) ALSO ROGUE WAVE Atmospheric, sometimes meditative arty rock. They have their nice moments on record, but not a lot that stick. (Coachella, 1:30-2:15) 2 P.M. DON'T MISS REDD KROSS Look at it as a victory lap of sorts for one of the enduring bands from the L.A. rock scene.
