The name is Trampled by Turtles, and after a listen to their music, it becomes apparent why. The group’s slow rhythms pack a powerful wallop of energy that is felt at the very core. Taking inspiration from opposing directions such as Nirvana and Bob Dylan, the Minnesota band combines rock ‘n’ roll energy with traditional bluegrass to create a sound that is both tranquil and profound. The heartfelt lyrics strike deep through the voice of lead Dave Simonett, and a beautiful medley of fiddles, banjos, and bass provides a backdrop that completes the musical experience.

Tuesday 9/9. $25-28. The Jefferson, 110 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
