Saturday, 10:30 p.m., free

TORONTO quartet New Country Rehab takes an accessible approach to alt-country, tailored to please both roots music’s biggest fans and invigorate those who are more meh towards the stripped-down sound.

While the fiddle strains add a backwoods flair, the accordion groans that peer through the spare opening of “Empty Room Blues” evoke the careful, slow builds of Mumford & Sons, delicate indie-folk, singer-songwriter numbers into full house rockers.

With fiddle, guitar, upright bass, and drums, they and the similarly armed Accomplices make a fine bill together.
