PICK OF THE DAY

Four plus one Do you remember a sitar or string section when you were staring at John, Paul, Ringo, and George? If you do, perhaps you were smoking something, because neither was part of the Beatles band. Not so for the five members of the Fab Faux. The New Yorkers who describe themselves as more than a cover band like to tackle the Beatles’ most challenging material including “I Am the Walrus” and “Strawberry Fields Forever.” 7 p.m. $35-$95. The Wilbur Theatre,
246 Tremont St., Boston. 800-745-3000. www.thewilbur.com

Hot, hot, hot Africans who settled in Boston and Jamaica are credited with perfecting the jerk-style technique and the spice. Saturday’s indoor/outdoor Boston JerkFest celebrates hot and spicy with Caribbean-style food, entertainment, and a rum and brew tasting.
11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 4-8 p.m. $15 and $35, $6 under 12 (check website for additional prices). Benjamin Franklin Institute,
41 Berkley St., Boston. 617-395-7680. www.bostonjerkfest.com

Soul train In addition to the Freedom Trail and chowduh, Boston can claim Barrence Whitfield and the Savages as its own. The rock ’n’ roll and R&B on “Dig Thy Savage Soul” features tracks with delicious names like “Daddy’s Gone to Bed” and “Turn Your Damper Down.” 9 p.m. $5 cover. Smoken’ Joe’s BBQ & Blues, 351 Washington St., Brighton. 617-254-5227. www.smokenjoesbbq.com

When Sonny gets blues Elvis Presley’s guitarist made an impression on a young Sonny Landreth, as did Chet Atkins and the Ventures and Robert Johnson. But, according to the Louisiana-based blues slide guitarist, writers like William Faulkner influenced his lyric writing. Landreth’s latest album is “Elemental Journey.” 7:30 p.m. $30. Regattabar at the Charles Hotel, 1 Bennett St., Cambridge.
617-395-7757. www.regattabarjazz.com

SUNDAY

Boy toys Too bad Father’s Day has come and gone, but for the next occasion in your guy’s life, how about a copy of “Memoirs of a Hack Mechanic.” Rob Siegel writes a monthly column for the BMW Car Club of America’s Roundel magazine, and his book will clue you in on how to purchase, fix, and drive very cool cars without going broke or getting divorced.
