Still eccentric, still rockin’: The Mavericks come to Boise

It’s cool to be a little odd. Just ask the Mavericks, whose confident blend of country, Latin and rockabilly simultaneously has felt hip yet authentic for a quarter century. Well, most of it. Aside from a several-year breakup (2004-2012), this Miami-born outfit has ridden a steady wave of success including a Grammy (for the song “Here Comes the Rain”), two Country Music Association Awards, a hit across the pond (“Dance the Night Away”) and a slew of good ol’ American country hits. Their highest-charting single, “All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down,” was a 1996 collaboration with an accordion player (Flaco Jimenez). Fittingly unconventional.

8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise. $29.50-$79.50. Ticketmaster.
