The Devil Makes Three, Phillip Roebuck

When: Fri., March 16, 9 p.m. 2012

An acoustic three-piece of guitar, banjo and stand-up bass, The Devil Makes Three scares up spirited string band tunes with distinctly gothic and vaudevillian themes. Though the band's members hail from New England and founded the trio in California, it may as well have been formed in some hellish underworld. Over primal thump-and-stomp rhythms, the three rabble-rousers harmonize maniacally on galloping, diabolical odes to graveyards, shipwrecks, Jack Daniels and the afterlife. Banjo extraordinaire and one-man band Phillip Roebuck opens with fleet picking and the frenzied stomp of tambourine and kick drum, together scoring his gruff folk-punk stuff. —Spencer Griffith
