Roger Waters

When: Mon., July 9, 8 p.m. 2012

Roger Waters inhabits the similar airspace of psychedelic rock, but he approaches it from a different direction. Where Hot Tuna is somewhat reserved, Waters was the architect of The Wall. More than their early Barrett-inspired psychedelic underpinnings, Waters' conceptual art rock made Pink Floyd in the popular mind. He possesses a knack for epic Wagnerian moments, from the jaded rocker of "Comfortably Numb" to the wartime loss of innocence captured in "The Gunner's Dream." No prog rocker can match Waters' ability to pen lyrics as evocative and grandiose as the music accompanying it. Waters hasn't written new rock music in two decades, meaning he pulls into the arena on trailers made of his laurels. Still, this is The Wall, and tonight, it's enough to beat the lukewarm Tuna. $55–$199/8 p.m. —Chris Parker
