The Devil Makes Three will be making an appearance at Mr Smalls on Tuesday, 9.25. The band is originally from Vermont but now resides in Santa Barbara, California. The band plays what can be described as folk punk, with a bit of bluegrass, country, folk, ragtime and rockabilly. NPR depicts the music as "whisky-drenched, ramshackle fury". The group has released four LP's, the last back in 2009 entitled Do Wrong Right on Milan Records. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name to enter.
From their press:
With a slightly punky perspective on vintage American blues, The Devil Makes Three is a breath of fresh musical air on its eponymous Milan debut. Laced with elements of ragtime, country, folk and rockabilly, the critically praised, drummer-less trio – consisting of guitarist/frontman Pete Bernhard, stand-up bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean – brings forth a genuine approach to acoustic music that is deeply steeped in rhythm. With the goal of being “an acoustic band but to play our shows like a rock show,” the band changed notions of what acoustic music could be. “A lot of it is really calm, and performances are sort of a ‘sit down, don’t talk, don’t move’ kind of an event. Thinking back to the old blues, ragtime and jug band music, it was house music, party music. That was what we wanted to do. And there really aren’t any other bands doing that.”
Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $13 and can be found here. More about the band can be found at these sites:
