Live on the LES with the Punch Brothers

On five wily, omnivorous bluegrass titans

Thile seems like an omnivorous and open-minded enough dude that he'll even come around to Fall Out Boy's charms eventually—perhaps "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" will grace the setlist next time. Anything is not just possible here, but probable. After all the clowning and genre-hopping, tonight's show ends with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs' "Farewell Blues," a slightly less contemporary tune, harkening to a more banjo-centric era. "Back when this was pop music," as Pickles explains it. "The 'Lovefool' of its time." They nail that one, too.

The Punch Brothers play the Living Room June 11
