Mixing traditional folk genres together with an almost punk rock style swagger, The Devil Makes Three is one of the most popular bands in the modern roots music revival. The three piece formed in Santa Cruz, California, deciding to utilize a raw, stripped-down instrumentation setup of just guitar, upright bass and banjo. On its 2002 self-titled debut, The Devil Makes Three displays its knack for crafting old-timey bluegrass jams full of rockabilly elements and high-energy showmanship. The trio's tales of hard drinking and soul searching have struck a chord with fans of several different genres throughout the US and beyond.
Worcester, Massachusetts band Four Year Strong was formed in 2001 by four high schoolers infatuated with the 90s. While the now five-piece refuses to accept any genre classifications, it basically makes pop punk with elements of hardcore and emo. Citing Blink 182 as its biggest influence, the band wears this influence on its sleeve. In fact, if you're nostalgic for the long lost days of Blink 182, seeing a Four Year Strong show is probably the closest you can get to being transported back to those carefree days of immature 90s punk.
