More details have emerged about the Travis Scott film Circus Maximus, which is heading to theaters in tandem with the release later this week of his new album, Utopia. Scott co-wrote and co-directed the project, having shared the latter responsibility with five notables: Gaspar Noé, Nicolas Winding-Refn, Harmony Korine, Valdimar Jóhannsson, and Kahlil Joseph.

Phish has added Aug. 25-26 shows at SPAC in in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., with proceeds benefiting flood recovery efforts in Vermont and upstate New York. The group has long been rooted in Burlington, Vt., which was hard hit by recent storms.
