Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes

When: Fri., July 27, 6 p.m. 2012

Justin Robinson and the Mary Annettes aggregate an eclectic array of instruments and ideas to create their skewed take on string-band music. More orchestral than jug, more hip-hop than bluegrass, the music is an unexpectedly hypnotic melanage of sounds. For proof positive, one need listen no further than the band's 2012 debut full-length, Bones for Tender. The album's rich textures depend on violin, viola, banjo, acoustic and electric drums, marimba and the jangly chirp of an Autoharp. Their showmanship and sense of adventure on record reflects the live show, a typically theatrical affair sometimes featuring costumes and always featuring flair. —Ashley Melzer
