Hear Banjo Music By Steve Martin

The career of "wild and crazy" Steve Martin consists of many movie favorites such as The Jerk, Three Amigos, Little Shot of Horrors, Roxane, Planes, Trains & Automobiles and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels... just to name a few. The comedic genius will be 64 years young on August 14.

SERIOUS BANJO: Funnyman Steve Martin is known for such classics as “The Jerk,” “The Three Amigos,” and the existential drama “Grand Canyon,” but he also has a knack for playing the banjo. Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers stop by the Cadillac Palace in support of Martin’s new album, “The Crow: New Songs For The Five-String Banjo.” 151 W. Randolph St.; Loop. 8 p.m. All ages.

FEED ME, SEYMOUR: And speaking of Steve Martin, the Hideout hosts a production of the musical comedy “Little Shop Of Horrors.”  So forget “Jersey Boys,” grab a PBR, and unwind to a singing plant. 1354 W. Wabansia Ave.; Noble Square. 8 p.m. $15. 21 and older.

RUN AWAY AND JOIN THE CAT CIRCUS: That’s right. The cat circus. The Amazing Acro-Cats of Chicago put on a Halloween-themed show at the Viaduct Theater, where they’ll ride skateboards and roll some pumpkins. 3111 N. Western Ave.; Roscoe Village. 7 p.m. $12.
