Top weekend shows: Poi Dog Pondering, Jerry Lee Lewis

Jerry Lee Lewis

Poi Dog Pondering: The collective will give an overview of its two incarnations on consecutive nights in “A Tale of Two Cities: The Austin Years and The Chicago Years.” On Friday, the band’s original Austin-based lineup will perform songs from its early ‘90s albums, then the current Chicago-based lineup will focus on albums released since 1995, beginning with “Pomegranate” through this year’s “Audio Love Letter,” 9 p.m. Friday-Saturday at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., $25; etix.com.

Jerry Lee Lewis: One of the last of the ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll pioneers still standing is back at it. If he’s in the mood and feeling spry, he can still turn in a bench-kicking, piano-pounding performance worthy of his legend, 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Congress Theatre, 2135 N. Milwaukee, $30 and $95; ticketfly.com.
