Critics' Picks: The Howlin' Brothers at Howlers

[BLUEGRASS] + TUE., JULY 11

The Howlin’ Brothers, the Nashville-based trio of not-brothers, are a string band rooted in old-time bluegrass and folk, with hints of New Orleans jazz and Delta blues. Their sound is stripped down without being dumbed down, and they sing about subjects you’d expect from a banjo, guitar and fiddle (namely, whiskey, love, guns, cheating). Joining the group at Howlers tonight are the local mountain-music singers Stillhouse Pickers. 8 p.m. 4509 Liberty Ave., Bloomfield. $8. 21 and older. 412-682-0320 or www.howlerspittsburgh.com
