Smart Bets: Kopecky Family Band

The first time that Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon played together, they were barely more than strangers and yet, "it felt like we’d known each other forever," says the Kopecky Family Band's website. And while the familial relations are spiritual rather than biological, the Nashville-based sextet claims strong ties to one another, along with a tight sound that recalls Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, June and Johnny Cash and others. After three EPs, they've just released their debut LP, Kids Raising Kids. The Kopecky Family Band performs at Isis on Monday, May 20. Matrimony also performs. 9 p.m., $8/$12.
