The great progressive bluegrass (some people call it "newgrass," which I refuse to do, because I am not an idiot) trio Nickel Creek have been MIA since 2007, but they're finally back and they have a new album—and tonight, they're playing the Crystal. Due to the whole "seven-year hiatus" thing, it sold out fast—but c'mon. There are ways. ERIK HENRIKSEN
