When you trace the musical family tree, you quickly realize that if it weren't for Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jon Knight, Danny Wood, and Joe(y) McIntyre — the late-'80s hormone-addling phenomenon known as New Kids on the Block — acts such as the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync never would have been as big as they had been a decade later. The Jonas Brothers might as well erect a shrine in their honor (or at the very least give them a cut of royalties). The grandfathers of the modern boy band (that just sounds wrong), the New Kids have grown up, coming back together after unsuccessful solo outings for some safe-paycheck nostalgia. Looking to remind you of your real age, the man-boy ensemble brings back the “Right Stuff” to the Richmond Coliseum on Wednesday, March 18, at 7:30 p.m. — with dance group Jabbawockeez.  For ticket information, call 800-745-3000. — Mike Hilleary
