Holy Ghost Tent Revival 

When: Wed., July 6, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $10

Well-traveled hellraisers Holy Ghost Tent Revival craft tunes that sound as if they had been written decades ago, but the septet's celebratory cross-genre cocktail makes their postmodern aims clear. Blending brass instrumentation and Beatles influences into raging ragtime tunes, the band takes listeners on a trip through time and tradition from Dixieland to bluegrass and doo-wop to classic pop/rock. Fortunately, there's enough calm in the swirling storm of compelling, shout-along choruses and rug-burning rhythms to latch onto a bevy of hooks. Tonight is part of the Music in the Gardens series, whose picturesque setting should provide a stark contrast for the music's unruly energy. —Spencer Griffith
