A FOXY FAVE, Nashville’s Zack Joseph and The Society return to the neighborhood café for another great performance. Led by 24-year-old Joseph, the band calls their sound "throwback folk": a special blend of toe-tapper jauntiness with roots rock 'n’ roll allows The Society to wield something that grazes up against rockabilly and tips its hat to old-time folk without allowing their sound to be dictated by either genre’s limitations.

It’s always nice to see fresh takes on Americana and its potential cross-pollination. Songs like “Stay Away From Me” gravitate toward ‘50s Buddy Holly-style vocal rhythms and swingin’ guitar arrangements, and ,while he can kick out the boot-stompers, Joseph can also turn a romantic phrase like an old pro. “All in Time,” a twinkling ballad about taking on the world in a partnership, is destined to become a hip newlywed couple’s pick for their first dance.

With a lineup of guitar, bass, and drums, you can sway or two-step: bring your sweetheart and dance across the moonlight-bathed Foxy courtyard.

Thurs., Aug. 20, 7 p.m., free
