Bruce Prophets
8 p.m. Thursday. One Longfellow Square, 181 State St., Portland, $15 in advance, $20 at the show.
In 1976, a band then called the New England Blues Prophets began rehearsals in the basement of the Fairfield home. Nearly 50 years later, the band is still going strong, albeit with a short name. Based in Portland and Waterville, The Blues Prophets feature Doug Wainoris, DW Gill, Jack Turkey, Jamie Isaacson and Jeff Davison. Get ready to dig some bluesy rock with these guys.

Imagine – The Beatles Solo Years
8 p.m. Friday. City Theater, 205 Main Street, Bidford, $25.
Here’s how to listen to the best non-Beatle Fab Four songs. Nick Pires plays drums, with Joe Boucher, Gary Backstrom, and Chris Eastburn trading off on piano, guitar, bass, and lead on his vocals. All four Beatles released a fair amount of music after the band’s demise, so there’s plenty of music to choose from. Get ready to hear the best of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. In addition to the four musicians, it will be joined by a saxophonist, a string quartet, local jazz students from his band, and several choruses.

7 p.m. Friday. Cadenza, 5 Depot St., Freeport, $21 in advance, $25 on show day.
Cadenza’s Freeport reopens after a short winter break with Old Orchard Beach-based singer-songwriter Annie Clark’s shows. Clarke’s latest album is the pandemic-inspired “Will It Ever Be the Same,” along with several albums released before that. With an engaging stage presence and a poignant array of songs, Clarke is worth a trip to Freeport. If you can’t attend the show in person, it will be streamed live from the Cadenza Facebook page.
