Marshall Crenshaw

7 p.m. • Dakota Jazz Club • $25

He’s been an actor (the movie “La Bamba,” the musical “Beatlemania”), an author (“Hollywood Rock: A Guide to Rock ’n’ Roll in the Movies”) and a radio DJ. But Crenshaw is best known as a creator of indelible power-pop music, including the hit “Someday, Someway.” His songs have been covered by Bette Midler, the Gin Blossoms, Ronnie Spector and others. An incurable record collector with exquisite taste, he continues to release new music, by launching a subscription service in 2014 for new EPs featuring at least one new original, a cover and a reworking of a Crenshaw oldie. Opening is Kevin Bowe, the Minneapolis singer-songwriter who has collaborated with Etta James, Paul Westerberg and others. Jon Bream
