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

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.

Regattabar at the Charles Hotel, 1 Bennett St., Cambridge.
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.
