[MAVERICKS MUSIC] + SUN., JULY 23
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
