Trampled By Turtles Plays Stage AE (Thurs., 11/3/22)

Think Mumford and Sons sped up, and you’ll start to have an idea of what Trampled by Turtles’ music sounds like. IThe Duluth, Minnesota six-piece forgoes percussion for instruments like the banjo, cello, fiddle, and mandolin. They’ve been making music for almost 20 years and scored a number one hit on the Billboard Bluegrass charts with 2010’s Palomino. The band released its first live album, Live at First Avenue, in 2013, and somewhere in between, did a pretty awesome cover of the Pixies’ “Where is My Mind?” (Other great covers: Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees” and Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies).”) Trampled by Turtles’ most recent LP, Life Is Good on the Open Road, was released in 2018. Special guest is Amigo the Devil. Doors open 7 p.m. Stage AE, 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (C.M., R.H.)
