Unity — On Friday, March 8, at 8 p.m., Burlington-based group Waylon Speed will bring its unstoppable, no frills, country-metal blend of rock to Unity College Center for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door; free for Unity College students.

Described as heavy, fiery country rock, for those who like their punk rock with some twang in it, the four-piece brotherhood of family and past friends features Waldo County native Kelly Ravin, Reverand Chitwood Hammaker and brothers Noah and Justin Crowther.

Since forming in 2009, the group has toured nationally in support of their albums “Georgia Overdrive,” the debut; “Horseshoes and Handgrenades,” a two-disc sophomore set; the “Boots” EP; and “Valance,” its latest effort. Waylon Speed has shared bills with acts such as My Morning Jacket, Junior Brown, Del McCoury, Jane’s Addiction, Clutch, Little Feat, Reba McEntire, Elvis Costello, Primus and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
