Mipso
Wednesday, June 28


Hailing from Chapel Hill, NC, there is a true Southern bluegrass charm to indie folk band Mipso. While combining traditional folk string instruments with uplifting gospel-like vocal harmonies, a hint of deep drum maintains the band’s progressive agenda. Starting as a 4 piece string band, playing shows around the UNC area, Mipso has expanded the texture of their sound in the past few years, adding electric organs and banjo. In 2016, their album Old Time Reverie topped the Billboard’s bluegrass chart, and in the same year the band was recognized as Rolling Stone’s favorite festival performance. Released in April of this year, Coming Down the Mountain is Mipso’s latest album full of striking steel guitar riffs and beautifully accented fiddle and mandolin melodies, all in the background to the band’s harmonious vocal range. The new album sees guest appearances by fellow Chapel Hill bluegrass musicians like Mandolin Orange’s Andrew Marlin. Tap your toes to Mipso’s deep catalogue of indie folk songs. $7-$30, Wednesday June 28, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E Grayson St., (210)223-2830, samsburgerjoint.com Kimberly Rivera
