Knoxville's the Black Lillies have done a nice job uniting varying strands of the country spectrum. They're an indie-label band that plies its trade at rock bars, but, in addition to making a big impact on the Americana charts and year-end lists as the case with their 2011 album, 100 Miles of Wreckage, the band is freakin' cool to rock a benefit for United Way of Thurston County and its work to support vulnerable children and families. Their sound is rooted equally in bluegrass and country-rock, but taken to the next level with the vocal interplay of songwriter/bandleader Cruz Contreras and vocalist Trisha Gene Brady. Olympia favorites the Blackberry Bushes will kick off the night.

THE BLACK LILLIES, 8 p.m., Capitol Theater, 205 Fifth Ave. SE, Olympia, $15-$20, 360.754.6670
