The music of California by-way-of Vermont trio The Devil Makes Three makes it easy to dance with the devil. Or is it to the devil? There is plenty to admire in the band's folksy blues, whether it's the fiendishly deployed acoustic guitars, bluegrass-evoking banjos, or the demonically cool stand-up bass. They say idle hands are the devil's workshop, but in this case, failure to witness The Devil Makes Three when they come to town is just the same.
The Devil Makes Three is set to play with Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons on Wednesday, April 23, 8:30 p.m. at Zeppa Auditorium, 315 Gregory St. Tickets are $15. Waterstreetmusic.com
