Hoots & Hellmouth

Hoots & Hellmouth 

When: Wed., July 6, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

Road-seasoned revivalists Hoots & Hellmouth craft tunes that sound as if they were written decades ago, but the quartet's primal punk bent pulls them into the present. Folding fleet fingerpicking and rough harmonies into its mighty fine folk tunes, the band takes listeners on a roller coaster ride from loose, laid-back roots pop jangles to full-tilt bluegrassy breakdowns. Fortunately, there are ample breaks in the country madness, allowing the songwriting's soulful Southern edge, timeless lyricism and immediate melodies room to shine. The show, part of Natty Greene's Taste the South series, will feature the local brewpub's suds, which should serve as fuel for the music's stomp and stammer. —Spencer Griffith
