South Side Johnny & The Asbury Jukes Play Jergel’s; Night Two of Steve Martin and Martin Short at Benedum (Thurs., 3/16/17)

1) Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes are bringing their wall-of-sound to Jergel’s Rhythm Grille tonight. The band features a New Jersey rock sound complemented by a talented horn section. Southside Johnny’s first three albums were arranged and produced by the co-founder of the band and Bruce Springsteen associate Steven Van Zandt. The albums were mainly composed of songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen. They are known for songs “Trapped Again,” “Without Love,” and “We’re Having A Party.” Silent Partner opens. 8 p.m. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale.

2) Two Martins, two nights. If you enjoyed Martin Short and Steve Martin’s witty banter in films such as 1986’s Three Amigos and 1991’s Father of the Bride, then check out their joint performance, “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Lives,” at the Benedum Center. The two will discuss their respective lives in show business. The evening will also include film clips and stand-up comedy. Short was a “Saturday Night Live” cast member for only one season (’84-’85), but he is credited, along with other members of that cast, with helping to revive the series. In addition to film, he has also performed on Broadway, including a one-man show, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me. Martin is an accomplished writer and actor, and he has hosted “Saturday Night Live” 15 times, second only to Alec Baldwin, who has hosted 17 times. Martin plays banjo and has frequently collaborated with Grammy-winning bluegrass band Steep Canyon Rangers. The group and Jeff Babko will perform with both comedians this evening, so, yeah, forgettable? Hardly. 8 p.m. 237th 7th St., Cultural District. (CM)
