Concert Review: The Devil Makes Three at House of Blues Cambridge Room


Looking at the three members of The Devil Makes Three, which played to a sold out crowd at House of Blues Cambridge Room last night, you wouldn’t necessarily think they belong in a band together. With his short cropped hair and vintage suit, singer-guitarist Pete Bernhard looked like he could play in a swing band and the same went for upright bassist Lucia Turino. If it weren’t for the cow skull tattooed to her chest, you’d think she came straight from an orchestra rehearsal. And bearded banjo man Cooper McBean looked like he should be in a bluegrass band. And yet these three sounded great together as they played a 90-minute set of their distinctive brand of folk punk.
