SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa City gets an eclectic taste of musical flavor when Cletus Got Shot comes to town with its string-based sound.

The Arkansas based punk-bluegrass group will play with Adobanga at 9 p.m. today in the Yacht Club, 13 S. Linn St. Admission is $6.

The three-piece ensemble is changing the trend that all string bands play bluegrass. The group combines punk, gospel, folk, swing, rockabilly, jazz, rock, and country to create a new kind of sound using guitar, mandolin, upright bass, and the members' voices.

The 2-year-old group is made up of Adam Cox, Nathan Miller, and Mark Landry, and they released a self-titled début album and are working on songs for a second album between tours.

Adobanga, a group from Cedar Rapids, will join Cletus Got Shot. The Iowa group is made up of six musicians who play indie-rock music with a hint of New Orleans blues.
