AMERICANA | Ballroom Thieves 

It's a trio, alright, though Ballroom Thieves may occupy the space a little outside the textbook Americana dirt road bailiwick. Hailing from Boston, this guitar, bass, and drums threesome seethes and rages like a preacher who has run out of things to say. The urgency and might is something this band achieves without the temptation of electricity and volume. The band stomps and howls. Come to the show and you'll do the same, I promise.

The Ballroom Thieves perform with Micah on Thursday, April 9, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8 p.m. $6. abilenebarandlounge.com; ballroomthieves.com.
