Packway Handle Band

Packway Handle Band, The Corduroy Road 

When: Sat., July 7, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

This Americana doubleheader teams a pair of acoustic Athens quintets whose modern roots music resides in the space between country, bluegrass, folk and rock also occupied by the likes of the Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show. The versatile veterans of Packway Handle Band are equally entertaining whether they're playing casually humorous string-band jangles, energetically covering Madonna's "Like A Prayer," tackling traditional gospel tunes, or harmonizing on a hauntingly beautiful original ballad. The Corduroy Road adds drums to the mix, updating Western swing with a dose of rowdy rock 'n' roll and a dash of newgrass picking. Pay $8 at 10 p.m.; visit thepourhouse.com. —Spencer Griffith
