The Wailers at Cat's Cradle; Patty Hurst Shifter at Tir Na Nog

CAT'S CRADLE—Now 26 years after Bob Marley's death, it's possible to argue that the touring Wailers—an ever-evolving cast of players and singers—is just shy of being a cover band. They've released nearly a dozen albums of their own, but their musical legacy is nil. Aston "Familyman" Barrett, now in his 60s, is The Wailers' salvation, then: Still filling the pockets of the rhythm, Barrett's swollen, steady march—underappreciated but essential—remains perfect. He doesn't hire slouches to play the music he's spent a lifetime with, either. With The Movement at 9:30 p.m. for $23-$26.—Grayson Currin

TIR NA NOG—The guys in Patty Hurst Shifter bristle a bit when called alt-country. Sure, their Beestinger Lullabies, an anthemic and occasionally dirt-roady debut, was within spitting distance of that tag, but the songs on subsequent releases feel more compact and coiled. Part of WKNC's Local Beer, Local Band program at 10 p.m. —Rick Cornell
