Tuesday To-Do: The Wailers

Posted By on Tue, Apr 21, 2009 at 12:30 PM


9 p.m., Revolution, $12 adv., $15 d.o.s., 18 and up.

First, clarification. The actual original Wailers were made up of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and several others. Then, in the early 1970s, members of Lee Perry's studio band the Upsetters, Ashton “Family Man” Barrett and Carlton Barrett, formed the Wailers Band, the backing band of the Wailers and later for Bob Marley solo. Confused yet? Following Marley's 1981 passing, his backing unit soldiered on with Junior Marvin, who after a decade long solo career, joined forces, without the Barretts, with Al Anderson, from both Tosh's and Marley's crew. Naturally, they decided to call themselves the Original Wailers. Shew! A recent addition to this bill is New Orleans soul diva Butterfly, who makes a quick return to Little Rock following last weekend's North Little Rock performance. Even for a Tuesday, expect a hefty turnout of tie-dyes, natty dreads and chamba-flavored incense to set the mood for this 18-and-up show. Try not to stand too close to the bus.
