The Devil Makes Three 

Wednesday, Apr 29 2009

The Devil Makes Three draws on rural blues, folk, and bluegrass in equal measures with rock 'n' roll. While many of the Santa Cruz trio's songs display a punk attitude and play up the virtues of gambling, drinking, and carousing, its take on excess isn't exactly over the top. Back-porch vocals, acoustic guitars, upright bass, and a touch of fiddle and banjo make for a down-home sound that's infectious for its lack of pretense. And yet on the band's new album, Do Wrong Right, there's plenty of preacher-speak on performing your dirty deeds with distinction.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
