The Devil Makes Three, whose latest album Chains Are Broken (New West Records) debuted in the Top 10 Bluegrass Charts and has spurred a successful two-year U.S. and international tour, are showing no signs of slowing down. The Americana triumvirate has embarked on a US winter tour that includes a show at Rams Head Live on Thursday, Jan. 23.

I’ve yet to read a concert review that begins with the line: “It was a dark and stormy night…” but it would be apropos of this one. Despite the chilly rain falling on Sunday night, the hardy souls that made their way to Union Stage were rewarded with a light, lovely and warm performance by David Wax Museum.
