BLUEGRASS/HIP-HOP | Gangstagrass 

Bluegrass and rap sound like two genres that should probably never meet — we've all seen how country and rap has fared — but Brooklyn-based group Gangstagrass somehow found the golden balance. Anyone familiar with the FX series "Justified" and its opening credits will recognize the band's track "Long Hard Times to Come," which earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music in 2010. The six-person band, headed by producer Rench, is now touring off its third album, "Broken Hearts and Stolen Money," an engaging album that proves far-out ideas can often work with genuine talent and a careful pace.

Gangstagrass plays the Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St., on Saturday, April 26, 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. Themontagemusichall.com; Gangstagrass.com.
