VOICES OF UGANDA BENEFIT: He's played a dreamy-eyed doctor and inspired legions fans to simultaneously yell his name and sing along and rock those sleeveless t-shirts that are probably due for a revival right about now. Now Rick Springfield is lending his guitar and stage-rockery to an organization that helps people impacted by war in Northern Uganda. The Aussie musician has a new album out, but bet he'll revisit "Jesse's Girl" and other favorites. Rocking out for a good cause is just good all the way around. Thursday, March 19, 8PM. $50. The Key Club, 9039 W. Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood. 310-786-1712
THE EARLY DAYS OF "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE": When you have Al Franken for a writing partner, you have to be wicked-sharp and insanely funny and dripping with irony. Tom Davis, one of the first writers during the golden days of SNL, had and has all those talents, as evidenced in his new book "39 Years of Short Term Memory Loss" (we'll remember that title for sure). Not only will comedy buffs see all the big names in the tome, but there's plenty of bad behavior (read: sex-and-druggery) to boot. Live from New York indeed. Tom Davis Chats -- A Writer's Bloc/Book Soup Event. Thursday, March 19, 7:30PM. Writer's Guild Theatre, 135 S. Doheny, Beverly Hills.
