Rusted Root, The Wailers

When: Sun., Feb. 22, 8 p.m. 2015

Sure, a tour shared by The Wailers and Rusted Root makes musical sense: The former is the lingering ghost of the band that once backed Bob Marley and toured last year on the 30th anniversary of Legend, the hits compendium released after the leader’s death. The latter is the Pittsburgh band that, off and on for a quarter-century, have treated reggae like a hacky sack or tie-dye shirt—a signifier of the global inspirations and aspirations that decorate their folk-rock bluster. On the other hand, it’s 2015, and not only are The Wailers touring, but they’re traveling with Rusted Root, who last had a hit 20 years ago. That must only make financial sense. —Grayson Haver Currin
