The Doobie Brothers

When: Wed., April 10 2013

It's easy to forget that the Doobie Brothers already had a half-dozen hits before Michael McDonald came onboard to sail them into shallower yacht-rock waters. The California band began its career playing Hell's Angels hangouts, where you can imagine early songs like "Jesus Is Just Alright" and "Long Train Runnin'" fitting in a lot better than second-incarnation hits like "What a Fool Believes." With founding frontman Patrick Simmons and Tom Johnston leading the band these days, McDonald's dulcet tones shouldn't really be missed. And since 2010's Ted Templeman-produced World Gone Crazy album actually went Top 40, there's a good chance the band will be more energized than anyone has a right to expect. Find out tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., Tickets are $48.50 to $68.50, and showtime is 8 p.m. — Bill Forman
