Gregg Allman, The Doobie Brothers 

When: Tue., Sept. 1, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: $49.50-$59.50
On paper, this pairing feels like a stretch. While the Allman Brothers’ mournful blues-rock amalgam and jammy proclivities brought the band a mythos along with sales, the Doobie Brothers, who morphed from boogie band to smooth blue-eyed soul platform, were mainstream to the core. Yet both bands started up within one year of each other, amid the dying embers of the ’60s, and they cemented their connection over the decades in co-headlined bills and with the Brothers thing. Let’s be clear though: Greg Allman and a crack backup band is not the same thing as the Allman Brothers, yet one imagines it to be a close second. Besides, the Doobie Brothers were never brothers, anyway. —David Klein
