Earlier this month, the playoff-bound Cleveland Indians ran into a bit of trouble in the form of the last-place Minnesota Twins. The Twins teed off on Tribe pitchers in the first three games of a four-game series. They only lost the last game of the series. Given that it's the time of the season when every game matters, the Tribe needs to fare better against the lowly Twins this time around. The two teams conclude a three-game series tonight at 7:10 at Progressive Field. Tickets start at $13. (Niesel)
Also known as the Ragin’ Cajun, comedian John Morgan adopts a redneck persona for his standup routines. The fast-talking comedian uses plenty of jargon and slang as he talks about things like the trials and tribulations of getting older. “I ain’t one of those men who like to brag about things they ain’t doin’ no more,” he jokes, explaining why he no longer brags about his sexual prowess. While not quite as big of a redneck as, say, Jeff Foxworthy, the Ragin’ Cajun comes close. He’s also able to do a number of vocal impersonations that make for a lively standup show. He performs tonight at 7:30 at the Improv and performances continue through Saturday. Tickets are $17 to $20. (Niesel)
A summer tradition, Wade Oval Wednesday, which takes place every Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. at Wade Oval in University Circle, provides the opportunity to catch a free concert — jazz, swing, world music, and more. Between sets, check out the local food vendors, the beer and wine tent, the farmers’ market, and free kid activities — all laid out on the Wade Oval lawn that's adjacent to Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Cleveland Art Museum, and the Cleveland Natural History Museum. Tonight, the local alt-country act Brent Kirby and his Luck performs. A screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens follows the music. (Niesel) universitycircle.org.
The patio season is in full swing in Northeast Ohio and chefs like Ben Bebenroth over at Spice Kitchen are finding every excuse in the book to move culinary operations out of the restaurant and under the clear blue skies. He and his crew have created Pig + Whiskey Wednesdays; Bebenroth and his chef Josh Woo fire up the smoker and cook up a mess of barbecue. The items vary based on whim and weather. There’s always a seasonal whiskey cocktail or two to wash it all down. The events run from 5 to 10 p.m. and there will be live music at some dates. No reservations are required. (Douglas Trattner)
Walnut Wednesday is one of summer's great traditions. Today from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Perk Plaza at Chester Commons — at East 12th and Walnut Streets — food trucks gather to serve up lunch to area residents and employees. Follow the Downtown Cleveland Alliance on Facebook for weekly updates on vendors, entertainment offerings and more. Admission is free, but the food will cost you. (Niesel) downtowncleveland.com.

LEGACY is a live show featuring a mix of lively, fast-paced and upbeat songs (“A Place in The Choir,” “Galway Girl,” “Raggle Taggle Gypsy”) that represent the fun-loving nature of the Irish and slower classic ballads (“Danny Boy,” “Noreen,” “Buachaille On Eirne”) that portray a more nostalgic and romantic side. Continuing their tradition of paying homage to the musical culture and traditions of Ireland, Celtic Thunder’s latest show is a depiction of both their musical footprint over the past 8 years, as well as their amazing heritage of Irish and Celtic music. $10 - $71http://www.playhousesquare.org/events/detail/celtic-thunder-legacy
