The Devil Makes Three with Jonny Fritz. 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 27-28, at the Fillmore. $25.

The Devil Makes Three has come a long way from its early days as a U.C. Santa Cruz party band. A half-dozen albums and a decade of touring have led to near-mainstream success for this dirty roots string trio. Its latest album, I'm a Stranger Here, was produced by Americana veteran Buddy Miller and released on the widely respected New West Records. Tunes like "Stranger," "Dead Body Moving," and "Hallelu" revel in the band's enduring love for raggy blues, roadhouse rock, and backwoods country, but there's also a fresh revival feeling to the record, as if the inebriated songs of youth have given way to the 12-step gospel of adulthood. Of course, longtime fans will still have much to jump and shout about when the band takes over the Fillmore for two nights this week.
