The Wailers, Steve Martinez & the Give Thanks Band

When: Wed., April 14, 8:30 p.m. 2010

For all the reggae tribute acts and revivalists that roll through the Lincoln, don't miss the real thing. The Wailers—yes, as in "Bob Marley and..."—center around Aston "Family Man" Barrett, who played a chief role in defining the island sound as bassist of The Upsetters and bandleader of The Wailers for more than a decade. Barrett has helped perpetuate Marley's legacy ever since—this tour celebrates his 40th year as a Wailer. Expect the hits—like a live version of Legend, performed by a key figure in its creation, with some fine stand-ins. Marley disciples Steve Martinez & The Give Thanks Band open. —Spencer Griffith
