Their first full-length album, named after the band and released in late May, featured their hit “Perfect.” Opening the show are 7 Minutes In Heaven, The Big Time and Count To Ten.

Rusted Root & The Wailers
Rusted Root can be described as pop rock complimented by African, Native American, and Latin percussion along with many other influences. Their hit song, “Send Me on My Way,” although mainly consisted of illogical phrasing like “oombayseeyou” and “seemoobedeeyah,” was able to succeed because of its simplistic and ecstatic optimism. They’ll be performing along with Bob Marley’s backing band, The Wailers, who have continued to perform his greatest hits in all their full reggae-riddim mastery. The opening act is the Adam Ezra Group. The Paramount, 370 New York Ave., Huntington. paramountny.com $20-$45. 7:30 p.m. June 5.

Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny (Kevin Corrigan) would seem to be the perfect test subject for a definitive look at the relationship between money and happiness in this engaging new film. Danny’s well-funded ennui is interrupted by a momentous trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Guy Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Cobie Smulders). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally. Writer/director Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess) returns with a fun, intimate fable that’s utterly grounded in real life. As wrinkles turn into complications, then blow up into full-fledged issues, the talented ensemble keeps the pensive tone light and the complex plot breezy. The result is a charming shaggy-dog tale that’s been hitting the gym: taut, limber, and powerful. Soundview Cinemas, 7 Soundview Market Pl., Port Washington. soundviewcinemas.com $10 students, $15 adults in advance, $20 at door. 7:30 p.m. June 9.

The Paramount, 370 New York Ave., Huntington. paramountny.com $15-$45. 7:30 p.m. June 10.

Heaven Adores You
An intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of beloved singer-songwriter, the late Elliott Smith (1969-2003). By threading his music through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — “Heaven Adores You” presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians. The screening will be followed by a discussion and reception with director Nickolas Rossi.  Cinema Arts Centre, 423 Park Ave., Huntington. CinemaArtsCentre.org $10 members, $15 public. 7:30 p.m. June 10.
