Crooked Still, the alternative bluegrass band whose music features prominently in the wildly successful HBO vampire series True Blood, will bring their high-energy sound to Texas State University-San Marcos Saturday, Nov. 7.
The performance will be held at 8 p.m. in the Glade outdoor theatre on campus. Admission is free. The show is part of the Jerry and Cathy Supple Folk Music Series, co-sponsored by Century Tel.
Crooked Still formed in Boston in 2001 and developed a genre-bending sound from the combination of five distinctive talents who are not content to limit themselves to any one project or style of music. While Crooked Still is the main band for these talented players, all are involved in other projects. Each individual contribution is enriched by the multidimensionality of their creative wellspring. The band has released four albums: Hop High (2004), Shaken by a Low Sound (2006), Still Crooked (2008) and the most recent, Live (2009).
In the event of rain, Evans Auditorium will be the alternate venue. For more information, visit the Encore Series website at www.encoreseries.txstate.edu or contact the Events Coordinator at (512) 245-3501.
