This weekend’s local entertainment offerings include two note-perfect explorations of the vast Beatles repertory.

The first, scheduled for tonight at the Two River Theatre, is by a band of local musicians with a taste for off-the charts Fab Four stuff such as “Martha My Dear.”

Both shows are fundraisers, so the sonic high comes with the good feeling of doing something nice to help out — in one instance, the Red Bank Charter School, and in the other, a Lincroft woman with a rare disease.

It won’t be long before these opportunities pass, so run for your life on over to Red Bank oRBit for your ticket to ride…
