Acoustic Syndicate, Town Mountain 

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-14

Since dialing down its tour schedule several years ago, Acoustic Syndicate has largely remained the same, though the quintet substituted longtime sax player Jeremy Saunders with slide guitarist Billy Cardine around a year ago. They now have plans for a new album later this year. The family ties of the founding trio of Steve, Bryon and Fitz McMurry are apparent in their tight-knit harmonies, while the open-minded quintet's rootsy tunes stretch into frenzied bluegrass flurries or serve as a launching point for spacey electric-banjo explorations. Stellar Asheville quintet Town Mountain's contemporary bluegrass is lively and taut in the opening slot. —Spencer Griffith
