With Bob Marley's 70th Birthday this month (February 6th), there's never been a better time to celebrate his life and music with his previous band The Wailers on this upcoming show.
If the Wailers are not playing near your area, you can also check out Bob Marley and the Wailers' Easy Skanking in Boston '78 live CD/DVD/Bluray, which came out this week (February 17th) via UMe.

at Cedar Cultural Center
Thursday 03/05/15, 7pm ($30)
Legendary Australian band The Church will be in Minneapolis this Thursday, March 5th at the Cedar Cultural Center.
We previously mentioned, The Church's latest album is called Further/Deeper, which came out earlier this month, February 3rd via +180 Records. Prior to this, I reviewed Untitled #23 (their 23rd album released in 2009).
The Sydney-based band will be in America to do a promotional tour for the new record.
NYC-based collective The Sharp Things (who previously played some gigs with one of my favorite bands The Tall Pines) will open the Church show; they're touring in support of Adventurer's Inn, which came out last year via Dive Records.

Friday 03/06/15, 8pm ($15)
The Parkway Theater is a movie theater, but they also book musical acts as well. Since it's seated, I suggest you show up early to grab a closer seat. Note: the front row are reserved at a higher price.
Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek will be playing in Minneapolis on March 6th. Although it's not listed officially, I think his sister Sara Watkins may be at this show?
Also on the bill is Dave Simonett of Trampled by Turtles.
