Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Dirty Bourbon River Show

When: Sat., Aug. 13, 9 p.m. 2011

Tallying the instruments in tow at any given concert should provide a pretty decent indication of the sound of things to come, at least theoretically. When faced with a band like Holy Ghost Tent Revival, though, that logic is as messy as the sound of this Greensboro six-piece. Their standard operating orders rely on brass meeting banjo meeting drums meeting keys, but it's more complicated than that. They meld old-time influences with wild pop panache, folk melodies with energetic horn bursts, plucky lyrics with soulful harmonies. It's a nice fit for openers Dirty Bourbon River Show, whose own brand of New Orleans Gypsy folk and circus rock will have you up and moving before you can say "Old-Timey Afropop Jibberish Junction." —Ashley Melzer

Price: $6-8
