New Town Drunks, Red Hot Poker Dots, Curtis Ellis

When: Sat., July 23, 9 p.m. 2011

They might be New Town Drunks, but they've turned into fixtures. When they're on, they combine footloose ramshackle fun ("Autumn's Truck"), wry humor ("Down With the Poor") and gentle ruminative sway ("Lost"). Diane Koistinen's husky vocals are inviting like a backyard barbeque while hubby Roberto Cofresi's plucked acoustic skips between a flamenco vibe, country-blues swing and ringing folk. They've released a fine pair of studio albums and are celebrating the release of their second live disc, Live. Arrive early to inhale the spunky roadhouse twang of Aussie transplants, the Red Hot Poker Dots. —Chris Parker
