the Black Lillies at Young Avenue Deli 

Knoxville's the Black Lillies have done a nice job uniting varying

strands of the country spectrum. They're an indie-label band that plies its trade at rock bars like Young Avenue Deli, but, in addition to making a

big impact on the Americana charts and year-end lists with their last album, 2011's 100 Miles of Wreckage, the band has become a fixture on

the Grand Ole Opry, from which they kicked off their current tour last week. That tour is wrapped around the late-March release of the band's new album, Runaway Freeway Blues, which further showcases a sound rooted equally in bluegrass and country-rock and which is elevated by the vocal interplay of songwriter/bandleader Cruz Contreras and

vocalist Trisha Gene Brady. The Black Lillies play Young Avenue Deli on Saturday, March 9th. Showtime is 9 p.m. Admission is $8.
