TROUBLE IN THE WIND
From Carlsbad, California, a stone’s throw from the beaches of San Diego, come Trouble in the Wind, a surf-rock-folk-Americana band with a warm, poppy, fun-in-the-sun sound that’s won them a strong following in SoCal and produced a string of peppy albums crammed with original songs packed with heart, ear-tingling musical hooks, and emotionally satisfying lyrics. Catch them when they roll through Petaluma this weekend. Also on the bill: The Mike Saliani band. The Big Easy, 128 American Alley, 8 p.m. No cover. BigEasyPetaluma.com.
WALTER SALAS-HUMERA & JEFF CROSBY
The prolific singer-songwriter-artist Walter Salas-Humera, Cuban-American master of the growling pop-rock, Americana-tinged aria, will be teaming up with Jeff Crobsy and a full band for an afternoon/evening of groove-heavy tunes served up with a touch of tuneful, rocker-tastic attitude and some serious dance-till-you-drop musical power. In the wake of his latest album, “Walterio,” he’ll be dropping in at Lagunitas Brewing, where he will (probably) be showcasing some of his popular abstract dog paintings, too. Cause that’s how Walter rolls. 4:20 p.m. Lagunitas Brewing Company, 1280 N. McDowell Blvd.
Locally-based Grateful Dead tribute band Loving Dead return to The Big Easy for a night of mellow, dance ready covers of the Dead’s greatest tunes. The Big Easy, 128 American Alley, 8 p.m. No cover. BigEasyPetaluma.com.

MEL BROOKS’ ‘YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN’
“Roll! Roll! Roll in ze hay!” “Werewolf! There wolf!” “YES! YES! Say it. He vas my... BOYFRIEND!” Arguably Mel Brooks’ most oft-quoted film (and one of the few not written by Brooks; it was actually Gene Wilder who penned the script), the 1974 comedy classic “Young Frankenstein” gets the Flash-back Cinema treatment (show times 12:30 and 6:30 p.m.), and again on Wednesday, at Cinemawest’s Boulevard Cinemas, 200 C.
