Smart Bets: Acoustic Syndicate

It's been a busy year for newgrass outfit Acoustic Syndicate: The band celebrated its 20th anniversary and completed work on a seventh studio album. It's due out in the spring of 2013. "Fans can expect more of the band’s trademark positive upbeat sound with soaring tight-knit harmonies, blazing guitar picking, complex polyrhythmic banjo and dobro playing infused with a rock-steady rhythm section," says a press release. "Acoustic Syndicate is preparing to roar back onto the scene." But first they'll wrap up the year with a series of special holiday shows. They'll play The Orange Peel on Friday, Nov. 23. 9 p.m., $15 in advance or $17 day of show.
