EGG BABIES ORCHESTRA: Catching an Egg Babies set is like being given a grab bag of songs that speak directly to you. You never know what you're going to get from this local supergroup, but there's usually something from your prom or your favorite movie in the mix. This time, the cover band says it's performing a show of "greatest hits," but it's anyone's guess what they really mean by that. Mark Eitzel and May Cat also play. The show is at the Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St., at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12. Go to themetrogallery.net.
