BLUEGRASS | The Black Lillies 

I suppose you've gotta classify them some kinda way, but Knoxville, Tennessee's The Black Lillies don't park in one stable long enough to come out sounding like others that rely on singular influence to jettison a specific sound. The instrumentation is bluegrass; the vocalization is country; the steady drive is rock. And the pervading sheen on the periphery? Well, that's jazz. The band expertly leans on these musics solamente or blended together: a la carte or all alone. If I weren't taking a hiatus from the word I might be tempted to call The Black Lillies Americana. Come see them and decide for yourself. It's good music, y'all.

The Black Lillies performs Friday, December 11, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 9:30 p.m. $12-$15. abilenebarandlounge.com; theblacklillies.com.
