The Devil Makes Three: Newport Folk 2011

The Devil Makes Three performs at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival.
The Devil Makes Three performs at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival.

There's no drummer in The Devil Makes Three, but there sure are rhythms: The trio's two guitars and one bass play acoustic roots music with a relentless beat in mind at all times. Based in Santa Cruz, Calif., the band is all about whiskey-drenched, ramshackle fury — it may be unplugged, but it rocks with fiendish intensity. The title of The Devil Makes Three's newest album doubles as a mission statement for the ages: Do Wrong Right. The band unleashes its drum-free dance party at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I., on Saturday afternoon.
