Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite: The pairing of Harper’s guitar and vocals with Musselwhite’s harp proves inspired on “Get Up!” (Concord/Stax). Harper sounds rougher and rootsier than he has in years, while Musselwhite conjures the electrified spirit of his rowdy ‘60s tenure in the Chicago blues scene, 8 p.m. Sunday at the Riviera, 4746 N. Racine, $49; jamusa.com.
