Whiskey Smugglers, Gambling the Muse

When: Fri., Dec. 17, 9 p.m. 2010

Country music is made for small clubs. With its tales of regular folks getting along as best they can and its sing-along choruses, you want to be jammed in as close together as possible for a sense of community. The eight-piece Whiskey Smugglers call on guitars, mandolin, fiddle, down-mountain-train energy and sheer numbers to put across their stories and get listeners to collide. Gambling the Muse, a comparatively compact five-piece, trades some of the rambunctiousness for atmosphere, resulting in Americana that you need to lean into a little more. In the middle of the bill, roots-pop trio the Pneurotics is country by association. —Rick Cornell
