Acoustic, but not quiet

What could Carly Rae Jepsen’s sugary “Call Me Maybe” and Rage Against the Machine’s furious “Killing in the Name” possibly have in common? Simply, the band Five Hole.

Those are just a couple of songs the popular North County band added to the repertoire over the past year. Besides being a talented group of players, the guys in Five Hole are pretty open-minded about trying to do songs they know people want to hear. But they also give those songs a twist of their own. And with its broad range, Five Hole can find common ground for Sean Kingston’s “Fire Burning” and the old Red Hot Chili Peppers’ gem “Suck My Kiss.”

“That’s how we roll,” singer Ken Berry shot back in a note when his list of new tunes drew a “whoa” on this end of the conversation.

On Saturday, Five Hole will shake it up even further with an acoustic set at the Coppertop. Just like its regular plugged-in shows, Five Hole won’t limit itself to songs you expect to hear done acoustically. You can see Berry and guitarist Rick Brown acoustifying "Billie Jean" in the Jan. 30 post.

Berry assures that Five Hole will bust out an acoustic “Baby’s Got Back,” the rap hit Five Hole has already once revamped as a hard-rocking show fave.

And from there, anything goes.

Show time is 8 p.m.
