The Devil Makes Three/Joe Fletcher

When: Thu., April 24, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Alternative Americana is on the rise, and the Devil Makes Three offers a fine contribution to the genre. The members of the trio were raised in Brattleboro, Vt., by “sort of hippie parents.” They grew up on a steady diet of jugband music and punk rock and ultimately developed a unique genre-bending neo-bluegrass sound. The band’s latest album I’m A Stranger Here, is full of barnburners, road songs and heartbreak ballads. A somber banjo distinguishes the tune “A Moment’s Rest” as band members sing about finding the answers to life while worrying and running from trouble. The Devil Makes Three doesn’t need a drummer as they create driving rhythm through their chugging guitar strums and fancy fingerpicking you can hear on “Dead Body Moving,” a surprisingly uplifting tune about dying. Expect a little old-school country mixed with a scuffling rockabilly sensibility. 8:30 p.m., $15. Grog Shop. (Eric Gonzalez)
