As Talking Heads co-founders, husband-and-wife rockers Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth certainly have had their influence on music since that band’s debut album (Talking Heads: 77) was released in 1977. When they decided to pursue a side project as the Tom Tom Club, their 1981 self-titled debut became a post-disco new wave phenomenon anchored by songs like “Wordy Rappinghood.” Ask many a music fan the question: “What you gonna do when you get out of jail?” and their likely response will be “I’m gonna have some fun,” a line from “Genius Of Love.” With its sprightly groove and lyrics that name-drop Kurtis Blow, James Brown, and Smokey Robinson, “Genius” remains a dance-floor favorite of DJs all around the world. Tom Tom Club performs with I&I at 8 p.m. at Sellersville Theatre; tickets to the show are $35.

Also playing: The Baseball Project and The Bigger Lovers at the North Star Bar. 8PM. Tickets to the 21+ show are $15.
