The Felice Brothers, Spirit Family Reunion

When: Thu., Oct. 9, 7 p.m. 2014

2014's Favorite Waitress is the first album folk-rockers The Felice Brothers have recorded in a real studio, but you almost wouldn't know it—and that's a good thing. The album retains the untethered, earthy sound of the band's 2008 self-titled major-label debut: raspy Bob Dylan-like vocals; dour topics of drugs, brothels, guns, heartbreak and murder; and backwoods-y instrumentation provided by fiddles and accordions—but the kind that predates the suspenders-and-banjos gimmickry that currently scores every sappy insurance commercial. The five-piece (two of the current members are actual Felice brothers) has undergone some lineup changes since its birth deep in the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, but a raucous show is always guaranteed, usually involving a singalong to "Whiskey in My Whiskey." Spirit Family Reunion will start off the night with its "open-door gospel" music. (Rachel Piper)
