I have always loved The Devil Makes Three.  I was thrilled to see them on the list at SXSW in 2013 but didn’t get a chance to catch any of their shows; I’m sure they impressed the Austin crowds.  Despite being an acoustic trio of three, their sound is rich and dynamic.  Their music at live shows rolls over the theater like a thunder and offers my favorite breed of bluegrass: mandolin-less.

The trio is made up of  frontman Pete Bernhard, upright bassist Lucia Turino, who returned for their encoure with a really awesome trucker hat and a smirk, and guitarist Cooper McBean.
