Jukebox the Ghost Plays Mr. Smalls; Carnegie Music Hall Hosts Pat Metheny; Buckcherry at Jergel’s (Sun., 3/24/19)

1) Jukebox the Ghost and the Mowgli’s co-headline Mr. Smalls Theatre. Jukebox the Ghost formed in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The trio has opened for Ben Folds and Motion City Soundtrack. Television appearances include the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Conan.” Jukebox the Ghost’s website cites that the band has played “almost a thousand shows.” It has also released five albums, including 2018’s Off to the Races. The highlights keep coming. “Everybody’s Lonely” charted on Billboard’s Alternative Songs—the first time a single charted for the band. The Mowgli’s, meanwhile, are from southern California, but the band members lost their “head in San Francisco, waiting for the fog to roll out.” The band has toured with groups such as American Authors, and its television appearances include “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Conan.”  The Mowgli’s latest LP, its fourth, is 2016’s Where’d Your Weekend Go? Look out for an EP, American Feelings, out this March. Twin XL opens. 7 p.m. 400 Lincoln Ave., Millvale. (CM)

2) Pat Metheny’s newest project, Side Eye, is coming to the Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland. The project will rotate members, but for now, it features James Francies on keyboard and piano and Nate Smith on drums. Metheny is a jazz guitarist, who released his debut album, Bright Size Life, in 1976. He formed the Pat Metheny Group in 1977. The group collaborated with David Bowie on “This Is Not America,” which was released in 1985. 8 p.m. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland. (CM)

3) Californian rockers Buckcherry, best known for their 2006 songs “Crazy Bitch” and “Sorry,” bring their tatted arms, loud voices, and instruments of rock to Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. Their new album, War Paint, comes out this March. Joyous Wolf opens. 7:30 p.m. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale. (RH, CM)
