Acoustic music is not traditionally known to have explosive energy, but that’s precisely where the members of Nickel Creek find their voice. For the past decade, the California trio has been redefining the perception of unplugged music in complex arrangements that are as full-bodied and powerful as their electric counterparts. The band’s newest album, A Dotted Line, blurs the concept further with a gorgeous mix of fast-paced, holistic tracks. The Secret Sisters open.

Saturday 4/26. $35-55, 7pm. nTelos Wireless Pavilion, Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
