If you've been following Mad Men, you know that by now the stylish staffers at Sterling Cooper are heading pell-mell into the '70s, with those terrible sideburns and psychedelic prints to match. But to us, Mad Men style still connotes the show's beginnings in the early '60s – when men were men, women were their secretaries, and everybody was ready for a martini, a cigarette and a swinging good time. Crooner Cheyenne Jackson makes his Walt Disney Concert Hall debut tonight with Music of the Mad Men Era, which includes ditties made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and, yes, Amy Winehouse, because the L.A. Phil's Songbook series doesn't promise that all the songs originated in 1962, only that they'll sound like it. The show is an update of the one Jackson performed in 2011 at New York City's Carnegie Hall – only here he'll be joined by Jane Lynch and Rebecca Romijn, two gorgeous broads who know how to carry a tune. Lynch's guest spot is a closely guarded secret, but Jackson tells us that he and Romijn will take on the Sinatra-avec-Sinatra classic “Somethin' Stupid.” Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 S. Grand Ave., dwntwn.; Sat., April 26, 8 p.m.; $45-$108. (323) 850-2000, laphil.com.
