Having recently released a collection of Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis covers, Beyond the Sun, roots-rock crooner Chris Isaak will be attempting to cheer up travelers today in JetBlue’s Terminal 5 at JFK airport. Unfortunately, this is the only “area appearance” on his current tour (go Queens!), so unless you’re buying a ticket or winning a contest, you’ll have to sweet-talk your way through security to see this show. Our suggestion? Recite “Wicked Game,” complete with Isaak’s beguiling yodels and you might just charm your way through. 12:30 p.m. FREE John F. Kennedy International Airport, Terminal 5, Jamaica.
