Peter Wolf at Bearsville Theater

February 22. Before they found mainstream MTV success in the early '80s with the hits "Centerfold" and "Freeze Frame," the J. Geils Band were purveyors of tough, Stonesy, blues-based rock 'n' roll. Fronted by Peter Wolf, the Boston band cut the classic studio LPs J. Geils Band (1970), The Morning After (1971), Sanctuary (1977), Bloodshot (1978), and the storming live sets Full House (1972) and Blow Your Face Out (1976). Artistic differences with his songwriting partner, keyboardist Seth Rudman, led Wolf to pursue a solo career in 1984, although the group has occasionally reunited over the years. For this date at the Bearsville Theater, it's a cinch Wolf will revisit some of his Geils gems. (See the Blind Boys of Alabama with Nicole Atkins February 15; Les Claypool's Duo De Twang noodles around February 28.) $55, $35, $25. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com.
