Terry Adams, Free at the Kimmel

Terry Adams is one of the great rock and roll piano players, a wildly proficient combination of Jerry Lee Lewis and Thelonius Monk who spent decades as one quarter of the elegantly masterful bar band NRBQ. Adams is calling his new band - which features Pete Donnelly of The Figgs on bass - the new NRBQ. Today, Adams and the new Q play a WXPN Free at Noon show, relocated from the World Cafe Live to the Kimmel Center in conjunction with the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts. The next three Free at Noons will also be at the Kimmel - Eilen Jewell is next week - and XPN is also putting on free Wednesday night at 5 shows at the Kimmel during PIFA, with none of the three - Bobby Long, Franz Nicolay and John Wesley Harding - having any apparent French connection. More info on that here.
