WEDNESDAY

Roughage Of “Fly,” the new release by Lettuce, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based, Berklee College of Music-trained funk band, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes said: “Lettuce is like a Learjet that wasn’t getting clearance from the tower, but we’re done just rolling around on the runway.

Paradise Rock Club, 967 Commonwealth Ave., Boston. 800-745-3000. www.livenation.com

Gore Place, 52 Gore St., Waltham. 781-894-2798. www.goreplace.org

At the Helm You probably associate Levon Helm with The Band, but the late drummer should also be associated with beating odds. In the late ’90s, Helm was diagnosed with throat cancer which resulted in damage to his vocal cords and a remarkable recovery that led to “Dirt Farmer,” his first solo album in more than 25 years. Sadly, the Grammy-winning musician died in 2012. Helm is the subject of Jacob Hatley’s 2010 documentary, “Ain’t in It for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm.” Sept. 4 at 7:30 p.m. (through Sept. 12). $11, $9 students, seniors (matinee prices available). Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston. 800-440-6975. www.mfa.org/film

Different strokes “We had to break up, though. We wanted different things — like he wanted kids and I wanted him to hear.” You can hear a lot more from Amy Schumer when the Comedy Central star pushes the comedic boundaries in Lowell. Sept. 4 at 8 p.m. $35, $25 students. Lowell Memorial Auditorium, 50 Merrimack St., Lowell. 866-722-8881. www.lowellauditorium.com
