AMERICANA | Swamp Rats 

One genre couldn't even begin to describe Florida-based trio Swamp Rats. The style contains bits of modern train-hopping punk yet is heavily influenced by traditional bluegrass with folk underpinnings — uniquely blended with metal riffs and mucky Southern blues. Each musician plays multiple instruments, so you'll hear specks of acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, stomp box, washboard, and despondent lyrics of life experience and the road.

Swamp Rats performs Thursday, July 20, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $5. abilenebarandlounge.com; swampratsmusic.blogspot.com.
