Fabulous Flea Market Band

When: Thu., Aug. 11, 10 p.m. 2011

Here in the Triangle, home to plenty of bluegrass and old-time bands worth your attention and a few hours away from the western homes of both fiddlers' conventions and the string-rock hybridists The Avett Brothers, there's really no need for Flea Market. After all, these four Oslo musicians play bluegrass like four kids still learning how to do it and sing it like four punk rockers who will never learn how to do it. But as they churn and howl through tunes about, as they put it, "love, insanity, murder, natural disaster and three-legged dogs," it's hard not to feel charmed by their guileless enthusiasm and strained delivery. Don't go tonight expecting to soon have some Mumford-or Avetts-like I-saw-them-when tales, because this band will likely never be those bands; do expect to have a good time. —Grayson Currin
