If you haven't taken a trip to the Museum of the Moving Image yet to see "Spectacle: The Music Video"—its dazzling, sensory-overloading overview of the song-length form—do so quickly, especially before the weather gets too nice. You can easily spend an entire afternoon soaking up sounds and still leave without seeing all of the 300-plus featured videos.


There is a lot to love about the show, which is up until June 16, from a human-size version of the animated milk carton in Blur's "Coffee & TV" video to a red-lit side gallery that screens controversial clips through peepholes. And the museum pairs the exhibit with a screening series titled Play This Movie Loud!, which revisits some classic feature-length movie films (through June 9). Look for gems like the Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter (May 11), the Band's The Last Waltz (May 18, 19) and Radiohead's Meeting People Is Easy (June 1).
