The Fevertones is a local folk band that is inspired by such artists as Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and Jack White. The band began as a blues group, but soon after transitioned to a bluegrass-inspired, alternative-folk sound. Fevertones uses a wide range of instrumentation, including trombone, upright bass, mandolin, and violin, to create a sound that is reminiscent of alt-folk bands such as Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Man Man. Fevertones released its debut album, "Barefooted & Still Breathing," this past September.
The Fevertones will perform with Folkfaces on Saturday, March 29, 9:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $5. Abilenebarandlounge.com.
