Love or hate reggae, there aren't many people that I know who, at some point in their formative years, didn't own and obsessively listen to Bob Marley's "Legend." Tonight, you can hear the album played in full at the Belly Up when the Original Wailers take the stage. Nobody does it better. Around town, Pinback return to the Casbah with a sold-out show, Ecstatic Union bring a "psychedelic dance party" to Soda Bar, and Ken Club hosts a rare midweek show with a lineup of rockabilly acts, so bring your dancing shoes and get your weekend started right.
