Riders on the storm are approaching, lighting fires for fans of one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Billed as Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger of the Doors, the keyboardist and guitarist will perform Doors material with bassist Phil Chen, drummer Ty Dennis, and Fuel singer Brett Scallions, subbing for the still-dead Jim Morrison. While no one can replace the charismatic recklessness of rock’s poet laureate, beggars can’t be choosers. Manzarek is 71 and Krieger is 64, and these rock icons are still dynamiting the stage with some of the best psychedelic rock ever written. So feel free to scream “Light My Fire.” The band’s fusion of rock, blues, jazz, and poetry will time-warp you to the golden age of the hippie, where you can moon dance on the backs of Krieger’s spidery guitar fills and Manzarek’s reptilian organ riffs. The show starts at 8 p.m. at House of Blues. Tickets are $27.50 advance, $30 day of show. —Keith Gribbins
