I've got a hankering for bluegrass this week. Maybe it's the rain, the flannel shirts and the switch from summer's gin to autumn's whiskey. Whatever the case, it's nice. Tacoma's Cottonwood Cutups are bringing that satisfying pluck and twang and funk to Olympia for a hot set in a cool bar. The three brothers - who enjoy Dr. Dre, campfires and the Hoh Rainforest - deliver toe-tapping Americana, tickled by mandolin and banjo, with guitar and an upright bass to root it all down. Southbay's Pig Bar is the perfect backdrop - intimate, wood walls, nice people, warm food and cold beer.

COTTONWOOD CUTUPS, w/Scuff & Al, 8 p.m., Southbay Dickerson's BBQ (inside Pig Bar), 619 Legion Way, Olympia, no cover, 360.943.6900
