“The Soundtrack Series.” Who doesn’t like to hear a story? Especially a confessional more than slightly self-revealing about a pop song that — for better or worse — sparks an unforgettable life episode. Staged cabaret style in the Long Center’s intimate Rollins Studio Theater, “The Soundtrack Series” launched in an alt New York City club before making a foray last year into the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the World.” Disclosing their deepest pop music secrets are Jay Byrd, Chris Apollo Lynn, Holly Lorka, Carrie Clark and Julie Gillis. Hosted by the series exuberant creator, Dana Rossi. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Rollins Studio Theatre, Long Center, www.thelongcenter.org
