You might know British foursome Mumford & Sons from soundtrack appearances on Stargate Universe and Grey's Anatomy—or, maybe, from their assured debut Sigh No More, which has gained such a fervent following in the US that tonight's show sold out almost immediately. Like their more melancholy British schoolmates Noah and the Whale, Mumford and Sons marry lyric-driven folk numbers with choruses that border on anthemic. It might be worth trolling Craigslist for tickets to this one—the Crystal Ballroom's quasi-hippie murals are the perfect backdrop for a show that promises to be at once intimate and inspiring.
