The Waybacks 

When: Sat., July 24, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $15

Old and new don't always yield to better or best. Though The Waybacks started life as something of a traditional string band, the one-time quintet soon morphed into something else. They have a larger repertoire of pitches than a confidence man, ranging through acoustic styles from Celtic folk and bluegrass to gypsy jazz and country. They've covered Led Zeppelin II front-to-back and have added electric instrumentation and drums as they've evolved over the years. Between the felicitous tastes and irreverent attitude, they'll leave you flat-footed if you don't keep your expectations in check—and sometimes even if you do. —Chris Parker
