PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Calling all Berkshire musicians: BOOM has arrived.

The Berkshires may be brimming with musicians, but for whatever reason, few venture far from their favorite open mic or music venue — leaving a sometimes stagnant local music scene.

"The issue with the Berkshires is it is just a spread-out area ... and there is no central place to go," BOOM co-founder Sandy McKnight said. "A lot of people are not aware of what is going on past Pittsfield if they are from South County and vice versa if they are from North County ... we want to change that mentality."

So the Berkshire Organization for Original Music was born to help connect musicians with

Tax Freedom Day, which typically occurs in late April, according to the Tax Foundation, is the day when the nation as a whole has earned enough money to pay off its total tax bill for the year. So you may want to use this opportunity to determine if you can liberate yourself from some investment-related taxes in the future.

Actually, Tax Freedom Day is something of a fiction, in practical terms, because most people pay their taxes throughout the year via payroll deductions. Also, you may not mind paying your share of taxes, because your tax dollars are used in many ways – such as law enforcement, food safety, road maintenance, public education, and so on – that, taken

A tragic dilemma confronts director Malcolm D. Lee's "Barbershop: The Next Cut," the fourth in the "Barbershop" film series if you count the spin-off, "Beauty Shop" (2005). While it is a heartfelt and generally successful attempt to lay bare and ponder solutions to the rampant murder rate in urban America (in this specific case, Chicago), the filmmaker also attempts to deliver the rollicking trademark humor that viewers have come to expect from the franchise. The unfortunate result is two disparate natures that never quite meld.

Like a cartoon train that jumps back and forth from one set of tracks to another, one marked serious, the other funny, the

It has been suggested that Melissa McCarthy's scurrilous business tycoon in director-husband Ben Falcone's "The Boss" is a female Donald Trump. Indeed, there are similarities, the main difference being that McCarthy's robber baron is likeable. While equally egocentric, delusional and selfish to a fault, we sense there's a moral core there somewhere. Fact is, real-life people rarely repent and change their spots. So we count on fictitious Scrooges to seek redemption and please our innate sense of right and wrong.

A prologue detailing a childhood scarred by abandonment explains the psychology that went into creating McCarthy's Michelle Darnell, the mogul

In director Michael Showalter's "Hello, My Name Is Doris," Sally Field as the loveably quirky Doris Miller manages, in one fell swoop, to deliver a treatise on individualism, joie de vie, grace in aging and how to battle the challenge of unrequited love. It is a tour de force that entertainingly reminds what a national treasure this now older gal next door has become.

We meet the eccentric, 60-something lady on the sad occasion of her 91-year-old mother's funeral, and soon gather that the title character has spent the better part of her life devotedly caring for Mom. Commuting from Staten Island to her New York City accounting job in some non-descript new age company
