While some of the vintage-sounding cuts like opener "I'm Torn Up" and "That Glow" hew closer to the slow-burning style of Al Green or the late O.V. Wright, the band's ripping performance at last year's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival proved they have no shortage of funk and grit to their material. The septet headlines the Fillmore for two nights this weekend with alt-folk singer/songwriter Sean Rowe opening the shows.
