Description: Combining fierce musicianship with intense energy, Trampled By Turtles infuse their "supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power" (Esquire). The band drags bluegrass kicking and screaming into the modern world. Helping them on this night is The Devil Makes Three, who traffic in "bluegrass…folk, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and ragtime, all played with a blazing punk-rock attitude" (SF Weekly). Thomas Paine-quoting Rhode Island duo Brown Bird, who favor a dark and dreamlike take on American roots, start the concert.
