3. Gallery Talk: The Beatles, 1 p.m. Tuesday, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, 1100 Rock and Roll Blvd., Cleveland. www.rockhall.com.

 

It’s an intellectual look at the Beatles and their stuff! You know ’em, you probably love ’em, so take a tour of the rock hall’s large collection of Beatles-related items.

 

4. Y&T, 7:45 tonight, Tap House, 2215 Waterloo Road, Akron. $15-$27, 330-784-7177.

 

My Oakland homeboys come to Akron. Hard rockers Y&T came out of the Bay Area in the early ’80s and had a few radio hits with “Summertime Girls,” “Rescue Me,” “Don’t Stop Running,” “Contagious” and “Mean Streak.” The lineup still includes singer/guitarist Dave Meniketti, an original member, so that should be enough to get your fists pumping and beers hoisted as you sing/shout along.

Actor/comedian Mike Epps, known as “Day Day” from the “Friday” films, and a zombie fighter in a couple of the umpteen “Resident Evil” films, brings his brand of very blue urban-oriented comedy to Cleveland. Read more on Page E10.
