When he’s not busy winning Grammys for producing records for artists like Taylor Swift and St. Vincent, Jack Antonoff keeps busy with his own projects, including Bleachers. The band, also featuring Mainer Evan Smith, put out its debut album, “Strange Desire,” in 2014, home to the feel-good anthem “I Wanna Get Better.” Two have followed, including last year’s “Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night.” Singer-songwriter Beabadoobee opens the show.

Boston-based guitarist and bandleader Johnny A. is bringing some of his musically astute friends with him to play an entire evening of Beatles tunes. After years of playing with other artists, including Peter Wolf, Johnny forged ahead with a solo career in 1999 and has released a handful of albums. For this night, however, it’ll be all about the Fab Four, and you can expect to hear tunes representing all the eras of Paul, John, George and Ringo.
