Hoots & Hellmouth, Barefoot Truth

When: Thu., Nov. 4, 8 p.m. 2010

Giving the old-time string-band format a kick in the teeth, Philadelphia's Hoots & Hellmouth have been singing and stomping their way across America since 2005. From the beginning, the band's coupled punk histrionics, folk arrangements and three-part harmonies into a signature roots primacy. Indeed, it's their rowdy live shows that have kept audiences captivated. These boys may tote mandolins, guitars and upright basses, but it's all manner of acoustic bedlam and country jubilee once they get up there. Barefoot Truth, hailing from the far reaches of Connecticut, opens the show with their reggae- and jazz-influenced folk-pop. —Ashley Melzer
