Al Green

Some people reading this might not exist were it not for the smooth soul music of Al Green; such is the romantic power of the good Reverend’s yowls in songs like “Love and Happiness” and the immortal “Let’s Stay Together.” Green’s last album, the ?uestlove-produced 2008 outing Lay It Down, returned him to the Billboard Top 10, but even without a new hit, there’s plenty of evidence that he’s still got it. See, for instance, the gloriously bizarre yet perfectly performed version of “Let’s Stay Together” he did a few years back with Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.

‘Roger Waters: The Wall Live’

Pink Floyd maestro Roger Waters is resurrecting his 30-year-old midlife crisis masterpiece, The Wall, for its first full performances since the Berlin Wall fell. Since then, bands as diverse as the Pet Shop Boys and Kor, have covered songs from the album as they face their own crises. This tour’s singular demonstration of tearing down a wall: Waters’ Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour, with whom he’s shared some very bad blood over the years, will sing “Comfortably Numb” at one of these gigs.

Tue., Oct. 5, 8 p.m.; Wed., Oct. 6, 8 p.m., 2010
