The Haymarket Squares/Andy Warpigs - Sunday, April 13 - Crescent Ballroom

While it would be easy to lump The Haymarket Squares and openers Andy Warpigs, Flagstaff's Wall-Eyed, and Florida-based musician Amigo the Devil into the same category, since each offers a hybridization of Americana and punk in some fashion, please don't. Not to split hairs or anything, but there's actually differences both subtle and significant between each of the acts on this here lineup.

The Squares craft more sociopolitical-oriented protest music in the punkgrass vein, contrasted by Warpigs' more chaotic and clamorous folk that's simultaneously amusing and anarchistic. However, Wall-Eyed's songs are more melodic and catchy pastiches of "gutter-folk, rock 'n' roll music, alt-country, [and] punk," while Amigo the Devil infuses his dramatic and banjo-driven murdergrass ballads with twang, torch, and emotionally torturous lyrics.

See if y'all can hear the differences for yourself during this free gig at the Crescent's concert hall. -- Benjamin Leatherman
