Infamous Stringdusters, Trampled By Turtles 

When: Wed., Nov. 17, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $15

This tour, dubbed "Fly Palomino" after the titles of both the Infamous Stringdusters' and Trampled By Turtles' 2010 albums, seems like an odd pairing. After all, the Dusters are from the bluegrass bedrock of Nashville and play polished (though hardly traditional) acoustic tunes that demand technical virtuosity. The Turtles, on the other hand, hail from the unconventional bluegrass base of Minnesota and thrash away at their instruments, delivering ragged, raging 'grass-rooted howlers. "To be honest, I don't really know how the seed got planted," Turtles frontman Dave Simonett told No Depression when asked about the tour. "But we're very happy it's happening." Agreed. —Spencer Griffith
