Critics' Picks: The Mavericks at Hartwood Acres




The above label is supposed to describe the genre of music played by the band we’re writing about. But after 28 years, the Mavericks have built a catalog of music that defies our instincts as music consumers to label a band’s style. Any one record could have songs that vary from Western swing and honky-tonk to blues and fast-paced, tight Latin rhythms. The Mavericks swing through town this evening with The Last Bandoleros to play a free show at Hartwood Acres as part of the Allegheny County Concert Series. Get there early for a good spot, because the Mavericks typically pack local shows — and this one’s free.

7:30 p.m. 200 Hartwood Acres, Hampton Township. Free. All ages. www.tinyurl/ACConcerts
