[NOSTALGIA] FRIDAY, JULY 19
Frankly, we’re not sure about seeing The Wailers perform Bob Marley’s Legend without, you know, the titular legend. Pretty sure Grave Dancers Union by Soul Asylum didn’t hold up the second time we heard it, and won’t 20 years later. And who outside of a fraternity in 1993 would pine for Big Head Todd and the Monsters?
But what would totally justify buying a ticket to the nostalgia-packed LP Tour, where four acts give their biggest album a live airing, is Matthew Sweet playing his 1991 power pop classic Girlfriend front to back. Get there early. 8 p.m.; Mandalay Bay Beach, www.mandalaybay.com, $42.50.
