Tonight (April 18) kicks off Boston’s On The Beach’s Blue Tuesdays, with singers and bands and the blues. And food like garlic-braised short rib penne or marinated steak tips. And brews like Boston’s A1A IPA. Or a Nucklebuster Smash Cocktail. The first performer is Annika Chambers, nominated for 2015’s Best New Artist Album at the Blues Music Awards, as well as others. Stage performances are from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
