Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile

When: Fri., Feb. 18, 8:30 p.m. 2011

Expect big surprises from this radical acoustic quintet. Starring the mandolin virtuosity and high, melancholic vocals of Nickel Creek's Chris Thile, the Punch Brothers match the bold instrumentalist with an equally agile quartet. Flashing technical brilliance on complex neo-bluegrass numbers streaked with classical and jazz sensibilities, the Brothers' 2010 sophomore effort, Antifogmatic, is still uncommonly accessible—marrying Thile's tender songwriting with inventive arrangements, incredible melodies and instrumental grace. On stage, the group dips into an eclectic well of covers that includes everyone from Radiohead to The Strokes, The Beatles to Bach. —Spencer Griffith
