A very select shortlist of live music tonight because I’m a very busy man.

@ The Hanover Theatre: Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes | 7:30 | $24 to $34. Your poor man’s Springsteen and the E-Street Band, but they can still kick out some pretty good tunes.

@ Nick’s: Lisa Marie and All Shook Up | 9:00 | No cover. Blues, R&B, powerful singing. Best female vocalist in Worcester in 2006, actually.

@ Ralph’s: Switchblade Suicide, Sins of America, Bottlefight, The Pathetics | 9:00 | $5. If Bottlefight sounds half as good as their name, then I’m a huge fan. @ The Lucky Dog: The Vital Might, Go Gadget Go, Flock of Assholes | 8:00 | Cover. From their myspace page: “Go Gadget Go! is a cover band that plays high-energy party and dance songs from the 80’s & 90’s.”

@ Bocado: Eduardo | 9:00 | No cover. Salsa que bueno!
