NRBQ

1005 Main St, Pawtucket, RI   (view map)

Joey lives on the Cape and plays music with Johnny under the name the Spampinato Brothers. Al lives in Nashville and writes hits for country dudes. Tommy passed away in 2012. Terry bounced back from severe health battles and is carrying on with his well-regarded Terry Adams Rock & Roll Quartet — ’cept he changed its name to NRBQ. It was a gutsy move, and quite a legend to live up to, of course: the ’Q was one of the most revered rock groups around, so it’s no wonder eyebrows were raised about the nomenclature thing. The new crew — guitarist Scott Ligon, bassist Casey McDonough, and drummer Conrad Choucroun — just released Brass Tacks, which the LA Daily News says is “as accomplished and as spirited an album as the band has ever made.” One thing’s for sure: Adams is a charismatic bandleader who turns the stage into a hotbed of grooves — jazz here, rockabilly there, pop all over the place. He knows a mess of tunes and is a sage filter when it comes to connecting the dots. You’ll get a kick out of the action — jumping and fun, odd and entertaining — at the Met, 1005 Main Street, Pawtucket, at 8:30 pm | $20 | 401.729.1005 | themetri.com
