Wayzata hockey teen’s interview on “Kimmel”
 
As “The Mighty Ducks” taught us, Twin Cities suburbs are no stranger to high school hockey feats. When Wayzata senior Mark Senden’s team skated to state championship victory over Eden Prairie last week, however, the teenager’s use of the phrase “everything like that” overshadowed the victory itself. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” put up a post-game interview with Senden repeatedly using the phrase with a counter in the corner, making light of what Kimmel called Senden’s “MVP-caliber interview.”

Kendrick Lamar
 
Remember Kendrick Lamar? Wait, never mind, that question’s redundant. The Compton rapper topped almost every major music publication’s best albums of 2015 list with last year’s “To Pimp a Butterfly,” and last week, the rap god dropped his latest “untitled unmastered” as a surprise release. Well, on Twitter he posted a lyric contest inspired by the album — though it’s too late to win that T-shirt, check it out and see if you grade high in your Kendrick knowledge.
 
 
 
Mourn this:
 
Beatles producer George Martin
 
Say what you will about The Beatles, it’s hard to deny the band’s influence on modern music. But beyond the band’s legendary songwriting, George Martin — who passed away this week at age 90 — captured the group’s magic and innovated the role of music producer. Contributing the string arrangements that underscored classics like “Yesterday” and “A Day in the Life,” Martin will be remembered forever as the “fifth Beatle.”

Hannibal Buress
 
You might remember stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress’ name after he called out Bill Cosby’s rape accusations in 2014, leading to Cosby’s arrest in December. Well, aside from being a crusader of justice, Buress is one of the funniest comedians alive right now, and he’s bringing his signature relaxed delivery to Acme Comedy Co. for a surprise show Thursday. It’s another in a string of Buress shows in Minneapolis, after taping his Netflix special, “Comedy Camisado,” in Dinkytown last year.

Protomartyr
 
Some bands get popular through a shtick. Even though it’s fairly unique that Protomartyr’s lead singer Joe Casey is, at 38, a decade older than his late-20s bandmates, the age gap isn’t the only thing interesting about the Detroit post-punk four-piece. Together, Protomartyr create driving, intense noise that opens a perfect space for Casey’s voice to cut through with his bleak, Detroit-bred perspective. They’re wonderful, feel-bad jams that anyone can freak out to. Local psych-rockers DIIE and the Cult of Lip open.

Trajal Harrell
 
The Walker Art Center’s a pretty reliable place to find “out-there” performance art. If you’re hankering to liven your Sunday evening by consuming abstract concepts through choreography, look no further than artist Trajal Harrell’s new performance, “The Ghost of Montpellier Meets the Samurai.” The latest in Harrell’s series of “dance-fiction” pieces, “The Ghost” hints at obscure people from history, including dance pioneers from France and Japan.
