MAY 7 & 8

With Rounder having recently repackaged for U.S. consumption the 1992 French collection of live tracks by the young, loud, and confrontational Modern Lovers, Jonathan Richman may be in the mood to own up to “I’m Straight” and “She Cracked.” Then again, don’t rule out “I’m a Little Airplane.” At 8 p.m. Sunday & Monday at the Birchmere, 3901 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. $15. (703) 549-5919. (Mark Jenkins)
