Andra Day. Old-school soul with a retro Billie Holiday look, an Apple commercial with Stevie Wonder, and a flair for jazzy interpretations of hip-hop songs by Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. Sunday at Union Transfer.
"The Last Waltz." The Martin Scorsese-directed 1978 film chronicling the star-studded San Francisco final concert by The Band, whose promoter is the subject of the Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution exhibit. Prescreening "Highs in the '70s" party with WXPN DJ Dan Reed. 6 p.m. Wednesday at the National Museum of American Jewish History.
