Off the grass: They got their start as a folk duo playing campus events, but today, Mipso’s blend of Americana, bluegrass, and indie pop is filling music halls rather than lecture halls. Since graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2013, the band has grown, and toured in Japan, played with the former chancellor of their alma mater, and performed on the KFC float during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade—not to mention having two No. 1 albums on the Billboard bluegrass chart. Their new album, Edges Run, is a move toward rock and pop music, with drums and electric guitars, that’s sure to expand Mipso’s audience.

Friday, August 30. $15, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
