Tonight's top show: 'Flying Saucers Rock 'n' Roll'
“Flying Saucers Rock ‘n’ Roll”: If you know that’s the title of the rockabilly classic by Billy Lee Riley you’ll likely enjoy the new book of the same name by Jake Austen. The Rocktober magazine editor and “Chic-A-Go-Go” TV-show creator will read from his new book of interviews with unjustly obscure musical cult figures, and Milt Trenier of the Trenier brothers, who presaged rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘40s and ‘50s, will perform, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Claudia Cassidy Theater at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington St., free; ChicagoCulturalCenter.org.
