The Buzz List: What’s Hot in September?

Lifestyle presents five late-summer events to add to your calendar.

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes: The soulful, hard-driving band with Jersey roots takes the stage at The Parker on Sept. 23. The group’s first three albums in the 1970s were arranged/produced by Steven Van Zandt of E Street Band fame—and Bruce Springsteen and Little Steven wrote songs for those releases. The night before (Sept. 22), two other rock legends, virtuoso guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen and Deep Purple’s Glenn Hughes perform at The Parker. (parkerplayhouse.com)

Trolley stops include Cove Brewery, American Social, Sushi by Bou and famed The Boca Raton. Tickets are $150 per person. (bocahistory.org)
