I’m not sure if it was more hootenanny or ho-down. What I do know is that it was one hell of a good time. Any time The Devil Makes Three comes around, it is guaranteed to be that. I could not think of a better venue for them to play than the Social. The intimate size of the stage was perfectly suited for the trio. There was no separation between the artists and the crowd. We were all in it together for a grand ole time.
The Devil Makes Three has an interesting vibe and scene. It is comprised of equal parts folk, Americana, punk, tattoos, and whiskey. Well, maybe a larger allotment of whiskey. Any fan knows exactly which whiskey, too; Jack Daniels. Old No. 7. And spirits were running high that night!
The trio had a good long set which included songs from their entire discography with a slight emphasis on their newest album, I’m a Stranger Here. They opened with “Stranger,” and continued to play songs old and new, tried and true. Amongst these were fan favorites “Old Number Seven,” “Forty Days,” “Hallelu,” “St. James,” and even one of my personal favorites “Uncle Harvey’s Plane” (below).
These songs got the crowd moving. On the floor we were all just one big mash of sweaty drunken revelry; dancing and moving to every half step. It was a folk-punk mosh pit/dancing circle full of denim, drinks, and happy folks.
