Crosby, Stills & Nash
Pared down to just David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash (Neil Young is now touring with Crazy Horse), a night with these three geriatric strummers whose list of influential cuts starts with 1969's "Marrakesh Express" is a good way to knock a few legends off of your concert bucket list at once. As the baby-boomer supergroup ages and mellows with their audience, these songs ("Our House") sound more like sturdy lullabies than folk-rock landmarks. The harmonies are still there in spades, and you can hear where acts like Fleet Foxes got their marching orders. CSN also finds time to spotlight its members' solo work just in case you were wishing and hoping to hear "Love the One You're With."
