The main run of NRBQ's career lasted from 1967 to 2004, and while the new lineup features only one original member, keyboardist Terry Adams, it's still exciting to see the NRBQ name back up on club marquees. The show this Saturday at StageOne comes just two weeks after the death of longtime drummer Tom Ardolino, who was too busy battling illness to be involved with the newest incarnation of the band. Adams spent some time fighting disease himself (throat cancer), and now that he's healthy enough to rock out once again, now seems as good a time as any to get lost in the music and enjoy life (and good health) while you've still got it. Proceeds will benefit Shakespeare on the Sound, so that we can see Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth and whatnot for free in area parks next summer.
NRBQ, FTC's StageOne, 70 Sanford St., Fairfield. Sat., Jan. 21, 7:30 p.m. $50-$100. (203) 259-1036, fairfieldtheatre.org.
