Aladdin Theater

[CELTIC ROCK] The Waterboys first appeared as would-be U2 clones, then incorporated overt Celtic folk influences. But today you won't find a better ’70s road warrior-style rock band. Leader Mike Scott is such a true believer, he remains the only artist I've ever seen who counted himself in—"1-2-3-4!"—at a solo show. With longtime compatriot Steve Wickham on psychedelic fiddle, plus guitars and keys, they tear it up onstage. Recent release An Appointment With Mr. Yeats isn't their best, but issued overseas next week is Fisherman's Box, an exhaustive six-disc revisit to classic 1988 album Fisherman's Blues, with liner notes by Decemberist Colin Meloy.
