Punch Brothers are in town tonight, and that can only mean one thing: concertgoers are about to be blown away, yet again, by the quintet’s accomplished musicianship. Led by front man Chris Thile, the five-piece bluegrass band has been described as progressive, modern, old-timey, and spontaneous. But, don’t take my word for it. It’s an experience that must be seen (and heard) to be believed. These dapperly dressed gentlemen are known for their unique spin on both classic bluegrass songs and contemporary music for the modern listener’s enjoyment. To really understand Punch Brothers’ aesthetic is to not understand it at all. Think of a combination of Earl Scruggs and Radiohead, dressed up with classic instrumentation, all performed with jaw-dropping timing, and you have a perfect recipe for a perfect evening with Punch Brothers. They play tonight at Town Ballroom. Doors open at 7 PM. Tickets are $23.
